girly circuits

several months ago the women in electrical engineering society at stanford had a tote bag design contest, and i won!  we finally had a 'tea and totes' event and i made a cute mini-tote bag!

it looks quite nice doesn't it? i intended for a light green and gold design on dark green, but black and white is fine also.  i made a pcb-green t-shirt too, but it didn't come out so well.  here is my tip for iron-ons: don't do them on stretchy fabric!  the fabric stretches but the plastic does not so it becomes opaque and begins lifting.  iron-ons are much more appropriate for things like a canvas tote because it's nice and stiff.  you can't see the edges until you're up really close, like this:

see?  in addition to being geek-chic, i am extra proud of this design because it was done 100% in powerpoint and mspaint, without installing any new fonts.

what is pcb?

Hi pfefi! That is super cute...congrats! :D

Thank you for joining my giveaway! Oh I know what you mean about finding an HG foundation. I barely just found mine not too long ago. (It's Revlon's Mineral Mousse) Good luck on your search, sweetie! Have you tried BB creams? I wonder if they have one that fits your criteria.
