Whenever I see a blank t-shirt, I die a little because I feel as though it isn't living up to it's full potential.
I got a new x-acto knife (with 360-degree swivel tip!) and I wanted to take it for a spin (ha-ha, get it? Swivel... spin... get it? It's a joke!) I named it Craig.
So I don't know about you, but when I'm doing the x-acto knife cut out method of silkscreening, I tend to be really bad at curvy lines.
Then I discovered the beauty of pixels and my life changed forever.

I downloaded this font from dafont.com called "FolkDance". It is pixelated people holding hands! Hooray!

Above is all the characters in the font, so if you want to use them but can't download the font or something, there they are for your silkscreening pleasure.

I choose my favorites and then print them and started cutting them out. It is so easy because, although there are a lot of islands and little pieces, they are all just straight lines that are easy to manage.

I'm so glad that picture turned out because the camera's battery was three seconds away from dying and I only had room for one last picture. Whew!

Anyways, in conclusion, pixelated art is really easy to cut out and looks TOTALLY ADORABLE on a shirt... or anywhere else you may desire it.

-SUSANNA!.

That shirt is ADORABLE. I love the color, the pixelated kids, everything. My favorite kid is the one with the striped beanie. Smiley
