Long Plaid Coat.

So, since the coat I wanted from Urban Outfitters is sold out (it was expensive anyway) & I needed wanted another winter coat, I decided to do something about it. & I saved about $80 in the process.

November 2006.

This was reconstructed from a large men's jacket I got from K-Mart last weekend. It's lined with some fluffy kind of fabric, I don't know what it's called. The arms are lined with a quilted polyester fabric. It's basically all just taken in to fit. There are two functional pockets on the front & one inside. I'm really glad with how it came out, even though it's messy on the inside. Who's going to ask to look inside anyway?

Lewis Dot Structure Stencil.

In celebration of my love for my boyfriend, & chemistry (joking). I'd been meaning to execute this idea for a while now. Finally, it's done, & it only took about half an hour at the most to complete.

November 2006.

I drew out the stencil by hand, since it was so simple. Freezer paper, fabric paint (this was a mixture of black & white to get a dark grey color, kind of hard to see in the picture), & a foam brush, just like the first time. That was about a year ago. Seeing as to how easy this was, I'm hoping I'll put this big roll of freezer paper to good use now.
