I was recently in the "I need a funky shirt-swap" and my dear partner rrrat asked for something punky, something plaid and listed tank girl as a possible design.... well, I couldn't just draw on a shirt, that would have been way too easy ( and also I'm not that talented of a painter/stenciller Wink), so I challenged myself by making this:



It used to be two man-sized shirts (one red, one black) and the plaid came from an old pair of stretchy 80's-pants, that I knew would come in handy some day, because of their pretty and stretchy fabric Wink And the eyes and writing are painted on with fabric paint (red, black and silver).
Because rrrat wanted to have something not-too-girly, I gave it a fitted cut, but kept the straight lines to make it look a little boy-ish...

This is the back and a view of the pocket I added (cause you can never have enough pockets, really):


Left side and right side:


And because I really like odd collars, I attached a funky collar made from the pants...and a few safety pins... cause really, if it's supposed to be punky, you really have to use safety pins somewhere in the design....Grin


and the sleeves:



Now I only hope, you can understand why I was so excited about sending this off to rrrat- and I really really hope, she likes it and it fits her....

whoa...

I don't even know who Tank Girl is and I don't wear t-shirts.

But I want this, I want it bad.  Cheesy

It's really and truly fabulous.

Oh, thank you, sweetie!

But you should really watch the fabulous quirky Lori Petty in "Tank Girl"- it's colorful and silly with wonderful design and it has a everything- horribly bad guys, good guys..ehm.. girls and Kangaroo-people! Grin

Thanks girls! I'm glad you enjoy the shirt as well... I had such a hard time sending it off- luckily, rrrat is a size smaller than I am, or I would have kept it Roll Eyes

Amazing my woodpecker of wondermeant!  The collar is very cool...but I like the eyes best (duh!)  Excellent job sweetling Grin

Tank Girl has a great sound track too.  I love "Big Gun" and I must sing it at the top of my lungs when it comes into my rotation Grin
