Hi all!

I've been a lurker for years.  Long years.  I just never got around to registering until today.  Anywho, on to the project:

I made this for my friends' son.  His first birthday was last April, and I, of course, wanted to give him something one-of-a-kind.  He LOVES music (instruments, singing, banging on things until he's told they're not drums), so I came up with the "I make joyful noise" idea.

I used a "crayon" font (i think I googled that) for the lettering and then free-handed the notes and lines and such.  I used transfer paper (like for use with a tracing wheel) to imprint the design on the t-shirt and then just went at it with gusto.  I think it took an evening or so.




The wet spot and random marks on the shirt are tracing marks in the process of being removed.

C&C coveted ;-)

Cute T-shirt.  Very good work.  I lurked a while before I signed up too.  I've found I like this place.  It's warm and fuzzy!!
