So, I had this idea for making a band t-shirt into a dress for a baby and since I don't have that many babies around me whos parents actually would appreciate that kind of gift I decided to make it for one whos parents really would.
I got an old Opeth tee from Mike kerfelts (the singer and founder of Opeth) wife Anna and turned it into a dress for their youngest daughter Mirjam.

Here it is:



Here with leggins (store bought):



Mike looked a bit scared when I told him I wanted to give him my Opeth remix (I guess he gets that a lot from fans) but when he saw it I know he loved it. Smiley

Awww! My fiancee and I just love Opeth and have already agreed that our future kids would be stylish like us. That fabric on the sides is very cute, so's the dress. It's nice to see alternative kid clothes.

The singer is awesome live, a woman screamed out "I want to have your babies!" and he said "No thanks, I already have 3, but I do enjoy practicing."

He's hilarious. A couple of nights ago in Stavanger Norway he tried to launch a new sign for metal, the Hook.  Instead of making horns he thought you should wave with a krooked indexfinger. Could you imagine seeing a whole audience of metal heads waving their hooks and shouting AAAARRRRRRGH! ?
He's a great guy, and he's wife's great too. I've been making lots of stuff for their kids for some time now, and since Mendez got his baby boy I've been making stuff for him too. They always seem genuinly pleased with their gifts but when they got their Bloodbath-tee for baby Mirjam when she was a couple of months old they did look a bit surprised.
The tee had a patch with a twoheaded bat holding a bloody kitchenknife, dripping with blood in the claws. Not exactly what you expect for your baby girl, but they liked it Smiley
