So a few months ago my DH got a banjo from and estate sale, and has been annoying me with it, even while I'm trying to watch TV!  Granted, he has gotten pretty good, but I can't hear Bones!  Irritating!
Well, I thought I'd make him a shirt to show his obsession to the world!  It wasn't all that easy with all the little pieces in the stencil, but I drew it myself and everything!

Well, here you go! Please excuse the washed out photo, it's been rather drab here lately...



Thanks for looking! C&C appreciated!

I think it looks fantastic! Was it a freezer paper stencil or screenprint? Also, did you have to use multiple coats of white? I've found that the white I have (Jaquard) didn't cover in one application on black.

I hope he loves it!

This is perfect!! I had a banjo dad growing up and it brings back great childhood memories. I think this is so cool. Love the graphic nature of your design. Lovin' it!

Oh yes, I have the same irritation. My boyfriend plays his guitar during House...  Angry Ha. I love the shirt, and even though I can't play the banjo, I want one.

lol, DH plays the guitar, too, but trust me, no stringed instrument is really as annoying than the banjo...  it resonates throughout the whole house!  And it's tin-y and high pitched...  Don't get me wrong, I like the banjo, just not while I'm trying to relax or listen to my shows!

thanks everyone!
