Hi.  This is my first post  Cheesy 

I have a pastel pink Red Sox Johnny Damon t-shirt.  Some of you may know he was traded to the Yankees so don't exactly want to wear his name and number on my back.  I was hoping I could get some ideas on what to do with the back of the shirt.  It looks very similar to the one in this picture only the letters are completely white. 

Any ideas are appreciated.  Thank you kindly

Ah! I have the same problem!! Only my shirt is light grey with everything written in pink. My bf insists that I can still wear it to the gym because we wouldn't have won the world series without he-who-must-not-be-named in 2004.

All I can think is maybe cut out some fabric in fun shape and sort of applique it to the back... maybe a pair of red socks?

haha, I have been using mine for the gym too.  Hmmm, that might work, I'd just have to find one big enough. 

The only other thing I can think of is to do some t-shirt surgery and maybe cut the back out and sew a new one on in a complimentary color?  Yours is gray, maybe use a pink, mine is pink, maybe use a gray?  We can always use the "Damon" for rags when we scrub our toilets LOL

that is true, he was a substantial factor to the WS win. and even to the relative success of last year. (though it does warm my heart to know that he's not going to ever have another assist on a putout at his home ball park for the next few years) i wouldn't worry too much about it.

but if you are, then the most practical and easiest thing to do is to get a tee shirt of a matching shade, and then cut a shape out of it that jives with the arc of the name lettering, then put your own name on it, or something like that. then you wouldn't have to worry too much about the big space of the number

Love that idea, thank you! Cheesy

hey, here's what else you can do:

or you can just scribble out the A with some acrylic fabric paint and put an E over the top of it with one of these things: ^
