1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / Fun Baby Shower Idea on: January 01, 2009 02:04:37 PM
My best friend is having a baby girl in April. To celebrate, my mom and I had a baby shower. At the shower, we made baby onesies for the new baby - almost 20 of them. My mom bought plain onesies at JoAnn Fabrics ($9.99 for a pack of 5). We then used double-sided fusible interfacing to make iron on appliques out of fabric scraps. I highly recommend this project for a baby shower. Everyone had a great time and the baby has more onesies than she'll ever need!

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster Softies on: January 01, 2009 01:45:33 PM
I made these monster softies for my best friend's new baby. My boyfriend designed the fabric. I'm really happy with how they turned out -- I just wish I took a picture of the back of them.

I finally got my act together and made a bathroom curtain using this chain link fence and butterfly fabric.
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Kevin the Monster on: June 07, 2008 04:11:13 PM
I just bought a gocco! I freaking love it. I printed Kevin the Monster on wool felt. I'm having a bit of hard time getting a really even ink distribution- maybe because I'm using the screen for paper (instead of the screen for fabric, which I can't find online)?


6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wristlet With Russian Nesting Doll Fabric on: May 08, 2008 01:01:11 PM
I made myself this wristlet. It is so cute that I don't want to carry it since I always get white purses so dirty...

7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Russian Nesting Doll Embroidered Tote on: May 08, 2008 12:54:08 PM
I love Russian nesting dolls. I used to collect them as a kid and my parents just sent me my collection. My boyfriend drew some of the dolls for me so that I could embroider them.

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / El Macho Onsie and BMX Onsie on: February 19, 2008 12:43:01 PM
My boyfriend and I have been making these onsies with a silk screen. He created the images. Our friends are starting to have babies (oh man, we're getting old!)

9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Bettie the Dog - Block Print on: December 20, 2007 06:47:28 PM
So I am not quite sure where to post this since block printing isn't a category in the image reproduction techniques - I figured lino block printing is closest to silk screening!

This is my first attempt at block printing. It is my dog, Bettie. I'm having a hard time getting the ink to be consistent and dark. I think it may be because the wood backing on the lino block is really thick (1"). May this be the problem or is it likely something else? Any tips for applying adequate pressure to the block to get it to print even! My boyfriend's advice was to just make a screen and silkscreen it, but I'd really like to get the hang of block printing.

Thanks so much in advance!
