Apologies in advance for the enormous amounts of photos but I was really excited about all I got into this one project.

I used Jenny Hart's Tattoo Your Towels and olde English and tattoo alphabets, as well as some free-hand lettering.

The back story:  My friend Tom is in the Navy Jag corps and always jokes that when he retires he's going to start a Pirate Jag because those Somali Pirates are loaded and will probably be needing a good attorney soon.  So I made him a two sided towel!


This is the entire Pirate side. I covered his last name just in case...any of you are terrorists?


Free hand lettering detail


Entire Navy side.  Once again last name covered...both last names are done in the same lettering as the rest of their respective sides, so you aren't missing anything.


Super detailed anchor and more free hand lettering


Mini-anchors for periods

Sorry for the crappy photos, we have a ton of snow and it's -6 outside to there was no way i was going to go get nice sunshiney lighting!

Comments and criticism are mush appreciated! 

P.S. It's been ironed but I used crappy walmart flour sack towels and they are like perma wrinkled....and maybe a little too see through....

That's pretty awesome. I am especially charmed by the anchor periods, cuz well, tiny things just rule. The large anchor looks really well done too. I need to get some more practice so I can do stuff like that!

Thanks Coma!

I haven't been doing this for long, I've found that the trick for doing things like the anchor is to not be afraid to rip everything out and start all over again...time consuming but well worth it.  I think I started the anchor about 4 times before I ever finished it.
