Here's the stencil.  You just have to rearrange them when you cut it out.

Ok, so I made this for my brother-in-law.  He's totally a kid at heart and is waaay into video games (of all eras).  So, here's my perspective.

Typical damsel in distress on old school video game:



Oh, but wait!!  Link's tired of her helpless attitude.  He's thinking "Aw, hellllll naw!!!  I've been going through all KINDS of stuff trying to rescue you!!!  I've been trying to talk to old ladies and find boomerangs and recorders and locate hidden entrances and get all the pieces of the Triforce and and and............ Ughhhhhhh!!!  You could help, you know!!!"

So, Link sets Zelda straight:




Aaaand the whole shirt:



I don't know why I even thought of this, but once I did, the idea struck me as hilarious.  Anyhoo, the technical side of things.  I could not find even ONE good image of old school Link or Zelda so I made these dudes in Paint, one square at a time.  I then used some of the auto shapes in Paint to make the speech bubbles and pixelated the speech bubble border one square at a time also.  Very time consuming, but not super hard.  If anyone wants the stencil, I'll be happy to oblige.  I used the usual-freezer paper and acrylic w/textile medium.  Thanks for looking!!!

What is "best present for a soon-to-be big brother" for $500, Alex? (hmmm, I love Jeopardy).  I'll have to use names in this one because it'll get way confusing if I don't.  So, my cousin Esther is having a new baby at the end of this month.  She already has an older son that's 2.  I was making onesies for the new baby and I didn't want to leave almost big brother out, so I decided to make him a shirt.  Well, Penny (also my cousin, Esther's younger sister) told me that Chad (Esther's husband) really likes Miley Cyrus' music, but is horribly embarrassed about it.  So, we came up with this idea as a joke.  If you made it through this convoluted story, kudos!!  Here's the shirt!!



aaaand a little closer up:




Hand-dyed shirt, stencil done with freezer paper, and acrylic w/fabric medium.  I made the stencil myself because stencilry didn't have one, so if anyone wants, I can post it.

25  Rock N Roll Angel in Stenciling: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: January 04, 2008 04:19:57 PM
This one is also for my 2 yr old niece, Emma.  White shirt, dyed pink, then bleach stenciled.  I got the line "Rock n Roll Casualty" off of a supafly hoodie that my husband owns.  My SIL and I kind of collaborated.  She came up with the wings (which are from stencilry) and I told her about what the hoodie said so we put it together.  Hope you guys like!

Front (the darker pink spots are just because of the notebook that's inside the shirt):

How do i make my own stencil with freezer paper this is new to me.  great job by the way.

There are lots of tutorials on that on the Stenciling: Discussions and Questions board.  Hope that helps!

Yay!!  I'm so glad everyone likes it!! Now let's just hope she feels the same!  For all who want it, here be the stencil mateys:
That's great. Reminds me of my Mr. T. I pity the foo who changes this diaper onesie.

I was looking for an idea for a 3rd onesie and I think you may have given me one!!  Yay!  Mind if I borrow it?
Go right ahead! Here is the post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=147294.msg1453334#msg1453334
Mr. T is at Stencilry and you can use whatever font you want.
I'd post my stencil but it's in a MS Word format.

I actually already used the Mr. T on a shirt for my nephew that says "I got no time for jibba jabba".  Hee.  Thanks for the idea!


My all time favorite onesie (and now I can't remember where I saw it to give credit) was "My mom drinks because I cry"  No picture, but sometimes, just the right sentiment.

That's off of babywit.com if I'm not mistaken.  They have some really awesome stuff, but it's waaaay too expensive.  I rip them off sometimes, but I don't sell any of the stuff or anything.



And, again, thanks to everyone for all the great comments!!!


Oh, here's the 2nd one I did for the same baby!  It's the meanie Russian boxer from Rocky IV (his name was Ivan Drago) and "I MUST BREAK YOU" is one of his classic lines from the movie!  It struck me as funny for a baby shirt.

Keep in mind that when I was cutting, I cleaned up a lot of the edges.  Just connected some things, cut curves instead of all the pixels, blah blah blah.  You know.

That's great. Reminds me of my Mr. T. I pity the foo who changes this diaper onesie.

28  What an incredible smell...UPDATED with pics of onesie#2 in Stenciling: Completed Projects by thankyoulocust on: January 03, 2008 07:53:43 AM
Ok, I made this for my cousin's soon-to-be-born baby.  She and her husband are big Star Wars fans and apparently this is her favorite line from the movie (according to her sister).  Stencilry didn't have a Han Solo stencil (can you believe that?) so I made this one from a picture I found online.  If anyone wants, I can post the stencil.  Anyway, done with the usual suspects-freezer paper and acrylic w/textile medium. 







I have more to come for this same cousin so rather than start new threads, I'll just add the new pics to this thread when they're done.  Comments and criticisms welcome, as always!

30  Kurt Cobain!! On your keys!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by thankyoulocust on: January 01, 2008 11:31:59 AM
So, I recently bleach stenciled Kurt Cobain on a shirt for my 2 yr old niece.  Her mom totally spazzed over it and said how she had just watched Nirvana Unplugged and was reminiscing and everything.  I really think Kurt Cobain was a musical genius and I still get sad when I think about all the awesome music we're missing out on since he died so young.  Anyway, my SIL got so excited about the shirt for her daughter that I made her this key chain using the same image.  It's done with shrinky dinks, traced off of the image and then I colored it in with Prismacolors.  I used clear shrinky paper and roughed it up with sandpaper before doing anything.  Hope you like!
