This is a shirt I made for co-workers who were named Teacher and Paraprofessional of the Year respectively.  I printed out the pictures from the computer then stenciled them with spray paint.



I made this hoodie for the 80's cartoon swap round 2.  It is the Thundercats logo.  I hand drew the logo, cut it out and then stenciled it on with spray paint, super fun and easy.

These are awesome.  Love the peace frogs.  My sister was way into those when she was a teenager.

And we are lucky to say that we have that thundercats sweatshirt in the closet.  Just waiting on cooler weather.  Going to be 90 today here in MD.  Unreal.

I'm not attached to your world, nothing heals, nothing grows... we used to love ourselves, we used to love one another.

Very cool, and I like the way it turns out with the spray paint. Just a question - how laundry-able are these shirts? I want to make something similar, but I"m worried that my art won't hold up to my usual habit of throwing everything into the washer/dryer.

I know for a fact that the frog shirt has been washed many times, in and out of the washer, with no problems whatsoever.  I heat set the paint with the iron once it was dry so that helps with the laundrability of the shirt.  It was fabric spray paint so that makes it hold up as well.

That's awesome, thanks for the quick reply. I think my son and I will be making some shirts over the holidays as a craft, so that's very useful information Smiley
