Okay this is my Chinese junk shirt, because I love the Decemberists. I thiefed the pattern from this shirt http://decemberistsshop.com/pages/junk.htm
This one took me hours to cut out because of all the islands. I' m really really proud of it, so no one can say anything mean. Only effusive praise allowed!


On my bedroom floor!

another decemberists fan! =3
yours is actually way cooler than the official just because it has that rugged, old school feel i expect from the decemberists.

I feel the pain that stenciling this shirt must have caused.  Islands SUCK.  And there looks to be roughly 5 kajillion islands in that stencil.  Way to tough it out for an awesome end result!!!

Thank you guys so much! I appreciate it.

Yeah I almost gave up when I arranged the islands exactly how I wanted them (but didn't iron them down) and then my mom picked it up and they all fell off...

OMG!!!  That really sucks.  I had a similar thing happen once, except I had put all of my islands in a little plastic bowl and one of my kids moved it and dumped it out.  I had to use the stencil as a template to re-cut them all.  Very uncool.
