I used the freezer paper method on these two t-shirts for dh's birthday. Found the photos online -- the dragon is actually a statue in Slovenia. For the RV, I was just trying to find the junkiest looking one I could. I'm still really pleased with how they turned out! I used the soft fabric paint and it stays flexible and has held up really well in the wash. Dh wears the RV shirt all the time. Unfortunately, I botched the front of the dragon shirt, so he hasn't worn that one. I'm thinking about cutting out the dragon and sewing it on like a patch on another shirt; maybe let the edges fray a little bit. What do you think? And should I go black on black, or choose a different colored shirt?

I like your designs.  I can't tell from the picture that the dragon is botched, but I'll take your word for it.  Black on black might be nice if you redo the dragon.  I haven't made a patch before, so I'm not exactly sure how that would turn out.  The edges might roll up more than fray with the t-shirt material.  I'd love to see how it turns out if you do it!

Thanks! Actually, the dragon turned out a hundred times better than I hoped! But I tried to put some text on the front and it got all screwed up. But dh is wearing it today, so who knows...
