hey there.
i too am a hugehugehuge fan of the primp thermals (especially the anchor one) i was trying to find a way to go about making it too.
the best idea i could come up with is making a small stencil and silkscreening it all over the place - uh oh doesn't sound very organized.
haha well it sounded like it would work in my head.
love to hear other peoples opinions.

I haven't tried silkscreening yet, but it sounds like a good idea for this print.  Can you make llines on the diagonal of the fabric (with a water\air soluable pen) to keep your print even?  That's what this print looks like to me. 

I think that if you print the fabric first, then cut the pattern out, you should get a similar look to the inspiration photo.

You can try stamping! At Joann's or Michaels (any craft store) sell foam stamps that could help you make those prints. You just need to organize where you want to stamp on the clothing piece..I mean how you line the repetition of motives. Use fabric paint and follow their directions how to apply. I am sure if you google something like "stamping on fabrics with foam or regular stamp" you will come up with a step by step tut.

Good luck...Have fun!
