Ok, the robots just made me die laughing.  So what if it doesn't make sense?  I'd wear that shirt until it fell apart.   Cheesy

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.

Sand is overrated.  It's just tiny, little rocks.

Well the image that I found originally looked like that so I didn't have to tweak it in photoshop.  What you do if you want to stencil-ize your image is you threshold it (Image>Adjustments>Threshold).  It works the best if you are using a picture with high contrast so that the light and dark areas are well-defined.

To eskimo, I made a robot shirt using the same technique and it faded a bit when I washed it.  However, on the marker it says that it's best when used on a cotton/poly blend fabric, which is what my R2 shirt is made of (my robot shirt was 100% cotton).  I guess the polyester fibers help it to stay on better?  I'll probably wash it sometime this week and let you know the results.

Cool shirts. I want to make some but am confused. Do you need iron on paper? The directions make it seem like you use regular printer paper and mark on the paper with the special pen but later on page two you mention iron on paper. Can you please reexplain??? Thank you!

I use different things to make different shirts.  For the Conan shirt and the Camera shirt I used iron-on paper but for the robot shirt and my R2D2 shirt I used an iron-on transfer pen.  For the pen all you have to do is print the image you want on regular computer paper and mark over it and iron on the other side.  The iron-on transfer pen is good for a design that's easy to trace and has a lot of empty space in it.  Iron-on transfer paper is best for multi-color or more complicated designs.  It's also more permanent, depending on the quaility of the paper you buy.  Hope this helps with you confusion.  Bye now!
