First time posting, long time lurker, so go easy on me Tongue

I've recently been granted with a level of creativity that I have long since had and it's amazing. So, in order to keep the juices flowing, so to speak, I am making things for friends. Mainly wearable things because there is a great sense of self-satisfaction seeing people you care about wearing things you created.

The first project that I have almost completed is a t-shirt for my friend Connie inspired by LittleBigPlanet (we have been playing a lot recently). One of her favorite Sackboy outfits is Zombie Girl so this is where the idea is rooted.

It was simple enough to make. A black shirt, some fabric paint, a few original stencils and a few hours work later and this is what I finished with!



I think it looks awesome, personally. I haven't made a shirt using fabric paints before, and screen printing is far too expensive for me at the moment... but, eh, c'est la vie!

A few more images shown (to make this post a bit more interesting) depict the stencils and peeps of progress.









I do apologize for the less-than-great-quality cellular phone pictures but it's all I had to work with at the moment.

I did enjoy using the fabric paints but it took at least three-four coats before I got the density that I was looking for. Stencils were made using poster board and it actually worked very well. Also, I made some slight alterations to the stencils (opening at bottom of ribcage and removal of bottom zipper hinge).  


Now, my only questions are whether or not I should draw up a stencil for "LBP" to paint on the back and if i should continue the zipper further down the shirt. Yes? No?


Anyway, thanks for tuning in! I'll keep you guys updated on the other shirts I plan on making (another LBP shirt, a Lego Star Wars shirt, a Mario shirt, shirt with a squid and an IT Crowd hoodie... possibly.) <3

i totally love this, i've been drooling constantly over a black car with zips painted on the sides, this could be a perfect idea to keep me satisfied until i can afford one (which will be never) plus i'm a screen printer, so i may have to borrow this idea for my own personal use at some point!!

Never tempt a craft nerd with the joke of a cape request, as a cape will be made and will be worn.

wow--the colors are pretty intense--not washed out like some stencils!!

I would add a few more zipper teeth...only because I like a longer leaner line and I think it would accentuate that it is a zipper...but maybe for your next one--this one is just fine as is!

love the design and can't wait to see more of your future posting!

Great job!

This is soo cute! I never would have thought this was from Little Big Planet had I not read the post. Then I was like, "Oh I get it now!"  Embarrassed

This t-shirt would also be awesome in brown to look like a sack.  Grin

Gorgeous, love it!

In answer to your question, I would also add more zipper teeth - almost to the bottom (so it mimics a zippered vest/shirt), but it's also great as is.
