Updated Raticate Wallet

The first duct tape wallet I made started to fall apart due to the shitty construction.
It was my first time, so it wasn't so bad, but it didn't last as long as I had hoped.
So I tweaked some of the construction and layout and made sure to be really meticulous about it's measurements so it would last longer.
Here's the old one

:c his tail was coming off and the insides were falling apart.
and all of the adhesive was getting smudged and ugly.
This is ONYX-eptable
So I got to working on a new one.

Cutting out the little beastie

How the inside of the wallet turned out, 4 card slots, 2 hidden pockets, 1 I.D. slot
Billfold complete with lettering ;D

Finished Product

I got rid of the borders because it looked too messy.
I liked this simple look a lot better.
It used up a lot less tape and came out looking clean and nice.
It came out better than I had expected, I liked it so much that I didn't want to give it away... again.

School's over so hopefully I can get back to posting blogs again, I missed it

:D see you guys later

Hell boy birthday :)

Tons of birthdays this month!
I think handmade stenciled shirts make a kick ass gifts
They're inexpensive to make and the people receiving them usually love them.
It was my best friend's birthday not too long ago so i got him a Hell Boy themed birthday gift

Hellboy stenciled shirt
Figurines :D
Stenciled gift bag
EVEN stenciled balloons!

Tape all the things!

So I decided to dabble a little more and start making some duct tape wallets. I've only made one so far, I made it to compliment a shirt I made for a friend.

I'm thinking of making some more.
This was my first time making one and I think it came out pretty sweet.

I just need more ideas I'm what kind to make. :)
Feel free to comment some suggestions.

Quick one

Made another shirt today :D
This was for a friend of my brother's. It was her birthday yesterday.
I do not in any way condone such things.
It's a cutie mark from my little pony.

Hey Stranger

HEY GUYS I miss posting. It's been a long time. I've been really busy with school and work now, I barely have any time to make any more shirts. I miss it. I made another one yesterday. It came out a little messy, but the person I'm giving it to liked it, so that's all that matters :)

1st layer
This is the most layers I've done so far, so it was a little hard.

2nd layer

3rd layer
4th layer
FINAL and toughest LAYER

End result.

I painted it with a mixture of fabric paint and acrylics.
I noticed that the water based acrylics are a lot more runny than fabric paint.
They're really cheap too. I got them @ Michaels for $0.59

I still have a little more to do on the shirt, but I'll post more later
Hopefully :D

Blank Canvas

How I love blank canvas. So much potential. So many ideas.

But in this case there aren't enough.

My friend gave me some onesies to stencil for her 16 month old. I haven't gotten started on painting them because I'm still not too sure on what to put on them. I haven't started partly because I've been busy with the new fall semester and partly because I hate doing half assed work so I'm not going to it my heart into it, I don't even bother getting started.

So give me some ideas friends! And I'll see if I can make it happen.
