1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Lampwork beads! on: May 30, 2011 06:45:29 PM

I have just started lamp working in the last two weeks or so, and thought I would share some of the beads I've made so far!
The beads here are mostly SCA beads designed to match 9-10th century Viking garb. Some of them (the greens and crazy colored ones) were just for fun. I'm learning how to make and use stringers right now.

Any other Lampworkers out there?

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Folkwear 123 on: October 29, 2006 04:38:16 PM

So for FLF (foreign Language Fest), I've been appointed by my German teacher to make a Dirndl (the beer girl outfits). I could only find one pattern which is Folkwear #123.

I'm wondering (hoping) that someone on here has done this before and will offer up some help on this mess. This will be the first time I haven't just eyeballed something and made it, so any help will be GREATLY appreciated.


3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Battered Fingers! (aka stained glass) on: October 28, 2006 03:45:54 PM
So I thought that it would be a good idea to learn how to do stained glass. And while it was a blast, it almost killed me.

Without further ado

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Nerdy Goodness. on: June 29, 2006 04:57:56 PM

So I lost the adorable pink cover to my jump drive on my keychain. I didn't want it to go harmed, so I was browsing sites for new covers I could buy when I saw one that had a teddy bear cover! Unfortunately, the site was in French and I doubt, for sale.
So I made my own  Grin

Original keychain

With added jump drive!

Action shot!!!
5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / since I didn't want to cut up my chucks... on: June 16, 2006 10:58:06 PM
I saw all of the ADORABLE Mary Jane's out of converses on here, and I have the perfect pair for mary janes, but they are red plaid wool. They stopped making those babies in the 80's and if I botched them, I'd never forgive myself.

So I thought I'd take a gamble and botch some men's dress shoes from the thrift store (I wear a size 5 in men's, so I'm not sure who turned those bad boys in)

Originally- cute but bad on the feet.

And then...

A little rough around the edges, I know, but I'm fixing that later...Too much work for right now Smiley
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / GHOSTBUSTERS!! on: June 07, 2006 07:42:42 PM
So this is my first skirt. Its not the best, but its cute. And it took forever to make because the site that I got the Tute (not here, don't be alarmed) was VERY wrong in its measurements.

The fabric is fine, those are rainbow panties you see.

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my slouch purse (edit) and now...iPod cozie! on: June 27, 2005 02:23:01 PM
So, I jumped on the bandwagon and made one too...out of an old dress and adorned with an old necklace.

and a close up

I know that there are weird little frizzies on it, but I haven't had time to clean it up yet...so just use your imagination.

special thanks to Tinafish for the Tute. I would have been lost without it Smiley

EDIT: and now an Ipod cozie...It looks a little wonky on here, but it is straight...not all curvy like my silly camera likes to think it is...

8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / HELP! LATE BIRTHDAY SHIRT on: June 19, 2005 11:34:45 AM
So I posted this shirt in the completed projects, because I kinda thought that it was done.

Then I got some comments, and realized who this shirt was for (a VERY picky  boyfriend)

I took some paint to an image of the shirt so I could preview it, but i'm torn...change it or no?


What may be...
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Alkaline Trio...help me? on: June 17, 2005 11:27:21 PM
So I've been working on this shirt for the last three hours. Its all my design and artwork. Its very simple, I know, but sometimes its better that way.

Still, I'm nowhere near done-  it needs something...any suggestions are MORE than welcome!

P.S.- If you aren't familiar with Alkaline Trio, the shirt is about the song "Radio"- the main line is "I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you, plugged in and ready to fall"- hence the tub, and the radio.

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Make Art, Not Math on: June 15, 2005 09:25:15 AM
I may have stolen this saying from someone on here, I may have seen it on tv, or I may have made it up one night laying in bed. The truth is, I really can't remember. But if I stole it from you...THANKS!!

This was by far the most problematic shirt I've ever made...I did it at first using transfer pens, but didn't mirror the image, so I painted over it. So then I used a white transfer pen, but I ironed it too long and the paper stuck to the shirt...SO THEN I threw my hands up in the air and handpainted it...crazy font and all. Its not as good as I would have liked...but here it is:
