i originally posted this on the clothes board, but i just found this board and it seems a whole lot more appropriate!
inspired by bleachrainbow's narwhalz shirt and my boyfriend's new found love of sea monkeys i decided to make him a sweet seamonkeys shirt! there is a lot of sea monkeys merchandise out there, but this takes a more personal angle i think!

here are the little darlings!
this one is on the pocket

this is the back of the shirt below the collar (probably has a technical name)
i did his name (mat) too for a personal touch! it isnt so crumpled in real life, plus i had just tried to wipe the chalk off so it looks a bit damp/weird

here is a detail of the seamonkey on the back

and the shirt overall - this photo doesnt give it justice. its on the wrong size model so it looks weird

this is the picture i worked from

they are so weird! and yet cute....
what do you guys think?

That's so sweet. I'm sure he'll love it. You did a lovely job.

P.S. I believe that part of the shirt below the collar is called the "yoke."

Great job! How I wanted those sea monkeys to look like their package-with their castle, and their crowns...no, I'm not bitter Cheesy
