Re your mom, I'm on a big oven mitt/hot pad kick and if she loves to cook and you sew, maybe that's an idea.  There are several posts here on craftster, I think even some tutes, or links to tutes.

Re your brother, why not a BIG guitar stencil kind of low and to the side of the t-shirt?  Maybe with the bottom of the guitar going off the surface of the shirt?

Wow!  I've been so tempted to try the making a bowl of little plastic things and scared that I'd eff it up.  Thanks for sharing your Lessons of Melting.  While I'm no less scared, I feel at least better informed.  Sounds like it's worth reading sweets4ever's entire thread, too! 

I think I'd set out to be random and then totally make a pattern, perhaps even the don't-ask-don't-tell type you did!  Ha!

Holy sh!t, girl!  That's an amaaaaazing transformation.  You have some vision.

Those are awesome!  Where did you get the pictures!  I can totally think of someone I could make something like that for!

Thanks! It's Alexander Henry fabric called "Heavy Equipment".  It also comes in a dark blue background (maybe other colors, too).  I bought it at Fabric Depot's store, but they also have a web presence.

How about:
"Come on in, the water's fine!"
"If you don't mention the wrinklage, I won't mention the shrinkage!"
(I know it's not a real word, but it's funny, n'est pas?)
"Rubber Ducky, you're so fun!" with little musical notes around
"Is that a toothbrush in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

Ha!  I thought of this post today when I saw a vintage postcard of ladies swimming (swimming caps, looked like 1920s or earlier) that said "C'mon in boys, the water's fine!"  But that's pretty much what Retromiad wrote first on her list.

I really like the angular shape and the fabric, too!  They really go nicely together.  Great job centering the pattern.

Made this little kitchen linen set for my former m-i-l, because we all need a hot dish now and again.

The dish towel is a flour sack towel, doubled and sewn around all 4 sides then appliqud the dude on.

The hot pad is sewn on to Insulbrite (that insulated, silver-on-one-side, quilted stuff).

And... the ubiquitous shot of The Mistress T's Studio Assistant.

The only thing I had to buy for this project (bottom photo) was the fusible interfacing, because for some reason all the stuff I had was black: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=195457.msg2063349#msg2063349

OMG --i was at the one of a kind show yesterday and i saw these sketch/note books that were made from old vintage book covers and inside it was just blank papper --she used the front and back of the books and radomly inserted pics or pages from the old book into the new one ---

   i picked up a small one and it was like 50 bucks ---so---that is what i am going to make for my daddy -- he used to read about this spaceman from australia ( he is from ausie land so i thought it would be close to his heart) --i even think he will use it too

i feel really bad though about taking this womens idea --- should i not do it Huh     

There are already several people selling those on the web and at craft fairs.  While I certainly don't think it's cool to straight up copy someone's business ideas, it's one of the risks of offering your things for sale.  People will get DIY on your idea and some of them will become your competition.

YOU are one heckuva sister.  I sure hope your 19 year-old brother and his girlfriend appreciates all this work.  I'm so impressed with all your efforts and with such a nice result for so little cash.  You might consider adding a link and comment about this awesome project on the Crafting For Men thread as I'm sure some of those following that could use your project as inspiration!  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=204973.msg2262476#msg2262476
