On the eighth day, God created beer!

« on: January 07, 2006 10:19:24 PM »

So I invited my friend Lizzy over to make some stenciled t-shirts, because I've been dying to try it out.  I tell her about craftster and how we'll find awesome inspiration and tips, and it was down  Embarrassed  I was sad.  So we googled some things we thought would be interesting.


This was Lizzy's first one.  She made it for her boyfriend who's a huge Simpson's freak.


This one was my first one.  I yucked up and dropped some paint on the shirt, but luckily its for my boyfriend and he'll love it anyway.


Lizzy made this one for herself.   She was really nervous and kept saying it was too complicated, but I think it turned out great!


I made this one for myself.  The tank is sewed all wrong, the seams are totally crooked (that's Walmart for you, lol), and it fits all weird, so I'll probably never wear it in public (my new pajama top!)

I made one more, but I just can't show it yet, cuz its for a swap and I don't want to ruin someone's surprise!  And I almost don't want to send it cuz I like it the best.  I'll post as soon as she receives.

By the way, we used the freezer paper method.  I'm pretty satisfied with a first time try, but I'm sooo jealous of Lizzy...I think hers turned out waaay cooler than mine!

I'm glad you like the Marley one...Lizzy was afraid that it looked like "an alien with tentacles"
