A Personal Update and Some Challenges

Wow, can it really be so long since I last posted?  I’m somewhat ashamed to realize how long it’s been since a new craft or pattern has graced the sewhooked blog.

I have been having a lot of Real Life lately, which I will be talking about here fairly soon.

In the meantime, I’d like to pimp two craft challenges, both for LiveJournal groups that I moderate or help moderate.

Twilight Crafts Challenge #5

There are new tutorials and a new paper pieced pattern in the works.  Until then, I remain yours craftily,

Crafts: Cullen Crest Stenciled Tee

Cullen Crest T-shirt

I made this little gem of a shirt over the summer while waiting for Breaking Dawn to arrive. It’s based on the Cullen Family Crest, as shown by MTV over the summer.

I did take some artistic license to make this a stencil. It’s a complicated bit of cutting, but well worth the patience!

Note:  Cutting with an Exacto Knife is dangerous.  Please be very careful!

Supplies:

In lieu of individual photos of the process, take a look at my how-to video for stenciling, which you may remember from this post. There are lots of ways to create a stencil. This is how I do it. I did not include glitter on the Cullen Crest T-shirt.

Text Directions:

  1. Pre-wash t-shirt without fabric softener.
  2. Print stencil onto freezer paper (matte side).
  3. Carefully cut out with an exact-o knife. There are loads of fiddly bits, so take your time and be careful.
  4. Set iron to medium.
  5. Place cardboard or newspaper inside t-shirt.
  6. Place stencil on t-shirt with a piece of blank paper on top (that keeps the tiny pieces in place) then carefully press with the iron.
  7. Use the foam brush to gently paint on the fabric paint.
  8. Allow a few minutes to dry, then carefully remove the stencil. For the tiny pieces, use a straight pin to help get them started for easier removal.
  9. Finish drying according to manufacturer’s directions.
