Here are a few photos of hands-on projects. There are of course many more, and I plan to round up more of my creations for show & tell soon!
I hand-stenciled and painted the banner myself. For the t-shirt I freehanded the logo using bleach gel on a brown cotton shirt.
using two multicolored holiday light sets, and foam core, I designed this "Peace on Earth" sign for outdoor holiday decoration. After designing it using Adobe Illustrator and penciling in the dots on the foam core, and poking the holes, the tedious work involved the route of the light cord and switching out each light bulb to change out the colors to suit my design.
I designed this graphic using Adobe Illustrator in the style of the video game 'League of Legends' and the recipient's character name within that game. I used a Silhouette cutting machine to cut the design out of adhesive-backed vinyl, then stuck it to a beer glass and applied glass etching cream.
Elmo, Oscar, and Big Bird cupcakes, each with some cookie, for my nephew's 2nd birthday party.
I stenciled the Black Sox logo for a little league banner for my young cousins. They helped fill in the paint after I penciled it all in, then they added the bats & balls with their teammates names.
I cut and sewed a white floral fabric of the bride's choosing into triangle bunting flags. Over 120 yards of bunting to encircle their barnyard wedding reception and grassy dance floor.
my first non-scarf-or-hat knitting project - a cardigan sweater for my 3 year old niece Jazmin
hand-knitted this scarf with a double-helix cable-knit design for my friend entering medical school
hand-drew the CiQlovia logo on the sidewalk at Mary Fox Park one week before the event
this was an improvised design that really challenged me. intarsia in the round with cabling!
6th birthday cake
first birthday cake, Halloween baby
"#iVoted" photo booth props for early voters on Halloween day.
I designed and cut out the letters (Illustrator, Silhouette) from thin craft foam, and glued them to oversized sunglasses, mini flags, and other props.
