First up, from a brown mens size L and an old yoshi shirt:


I'm much more proud of the second shirt, hence the greater number of pics. Firstly, a general shot (with what I promise is my foot, and not a spare body part I happened to have lying around. Mad scientists classes don't start until third year  Wink Sorry about that!):
Yup, Im an engineering student! While I don't go to Ryerson (big cities freak me out!) I do have to give credit to the makers of the original shirt, found on the back:

And finally, a detail shot of the collar and tops of the sleeves. It took a while, but I like the effect!


That's all for now folks! I'd be really grateful if you left a comment or something on your way by - it's my first post and I'm kind of nervous!

Yay Yoshi! Great way to give life to an old, but awesome, shirt. And I like the detailing you did on the sleeves and collar. They make what might have been a slightly boring shirt into something a little more eye-catching.  Smiley

Congrats on the first post!  Cheesy

I love the yoshi T, ever since I played Mario for the first time I loved him (not to mention his logic Cheesy). The detail on the collar and cuffs on the other shirt is really cool.

Never underestimate the power of suggestion.

I am interested in personal swaps for fabric and quilting squares. PM me if you're interested!

Just stumbled upon your tee shirts (okay, so I was bored and searched "engineering" because I'm an eng student too!)  Love them!
