hello everyone,

just thought i'd share with you a few t shirts i've made, one's a Clash T , and another is a Yeah Yeah Yeahs one I stencilled.





Hope this worked, I just used Photobucket for the 1st time! by the way has anyone else made any band t shirts? I want to make a Pxes one but cant figure out how to do the logo. Any ideas?

you know you can use other colors for  the words by getting fabric markers. they are available at A.C. Moore's and probably any other huge craft store. that way it'll be easier to color into the stencils, and the words wont fade away. i usually use fabric markers to draw designs on the bottom of my twill pants'. GREAT IDEA btw, much better than pay $20.00 for the shirt some other kid has... A.C. Moore also sells plain tshirts of many colors too.

Are you sure you're not a salesperson for A.C Moores?  Wink

I just printed stencils out from the computer, then cut them out and used fabric paint for the Clash one, and spray paint for the YYYs one. Spray painting's a lot easier!

Im just wondering what kind of t-shirts did you buy because its really hard for me to find a decent blank t-shirt. Love the clash one! I just made a couple for me one was a real mckenzies shirt and the other was the buzzcocks. Its nice to have band t-shirts that you can afford.

Did you heat set the fabric after you sprayed it?  I'm also curious how it held up in the wash.

Love it!  Off to stencil...

Well I'm from the UK, and there's a shop called Topshop which sells great t-shirts for 4.50.  Hey I'd like to see your Buzzcocks t-shirt if possible, I love them too  Smiley

As for holding up in the wash, the Clash one seems fine so far but I havent washed the one done with spray paint, I think it will fade a bit but that just adds to the hand-made feel hehe..
