Look look looky!  A new shirt!



R2D2!!!  It was easy peasy to make.  Found the image, printed it out, traced over it with an iron-on marker, ironed it on a shirt and voila!  Ok I haven't slept in like 20 hours so maybe it's time for a little shut-eye.  Nighty night folks.

For my iron-ons I use printworks brand premium photo quality T-shirt transfers.  They cost about $10 for a pack of 5, but you can make several designs using one sheet of paper.  They work really good, but they recommend that your design doesn't have any sharp corners because they tend to stick up after they go through the wash.  That's what happened to my Conan shirt, but the other shirts I've made with rounded corners still look good after being through the washer/dryer.

Here's the Conan stencil that I made with Photoshop.  Feel free to use it, I trust you guys.  Wink

i really like your bjork shirt. how did you do it? can you post a tour!??

It was really easy to do.  You just need an iron-on transfer pen or marker, which you can get at pretty much any arts & crafts store.  I found a nice Bjork image and tweaked it using Photoshop.  Then I went over it with the marker (I used a black marker on a black image, which was dumb because I couldn't see where I had colored in or not.  Now I print images out in gray so I can see what I'm doing.).  After that you simply put the paper, marked side down, onto the shirt and iron for about 30 seconds.  The longer you iron, the darker the image.  You can also re-use the image, but it will turn out lighter each time.  I still haven't tested out how the iron-ons stand up in the washing machine, but the pen says it works best when used on cotton/poly material. 

Here's the Bjork image I made, if you'd like to use it:
