I'm kind of a huge fan of the webcomic xkcd.  I saw this particular comic and really wanted to put it on a shirt.  so I went to Wal-mart and as luck would have it the only white t-shirts they had were large and up...  I wear a small.  so I was like, whatever, I'll do a recon, and bought a 3X.


The text says, 'Before you talk to me, I should warn you:  I am kind of strange.'  I put a little 'xkcd.com' underneath the dinosaur because the image is under a Creative Commons license  Smiley  yay CC!!

excuse me looking all dramatic.  this is just to show the tendency of the shirt to want to go off-shoulder.  but that's cool, it looks kind of cool that way, I might wear it like that sometimes.

the back.  I tried to put a strap there to hold it up, but I didn't get it high enough or tight enough so it's mostly just decoration  Tongue  oh well.  it's cute.

the shirt's a little tight... haha, seam allowances should probably be a little bigger next time.  seems like every recon I do is like that... you'd think I'd learn.  whatever!  I'm happy with it, I think I'll wear it to class Monday.

I like that a LOT.  The square neckline is so pretty!  And I like the words and the picture, too.  Smiley

Yeah, another xkcd fan. 

And yes, yeah for creative commons licensing because I have lots of craft running through my bloodstream but almost no art...

that's a great idea - and a lovely project.  they never make my favorites into official shirts and i guess it never occurred to me to make my own.  great inspiration!
