That's awesome :P I got a bit tired of the Napoleon Dynamite phase, but I still love that shirt, and you did it so smoothly.

It's an awesome idea, but the actual t-shirt you used makes it all the better...it's like he's sooo psyched that you're going to sit on his face again!   :D

"A t-chair... it's a cross between a t-shirt and a chair, bred for its skills in magic.  It's pretty much my favorite piece of furniture."

Okay, I'm a dork.  But... I LOVE THIS!!!

Love it!

Do they sell stuff you can wash your clothes in to make them stain resistant? I bet they totally sell stuff like that, because the Dow Corporation is an evil empire, and evil empires think of stuff like that.

Anyway, that would be great for T-shirts you plan to sit your butt on while indulging in a nice cup of coffee.

I bow at your creativity. Yet another reason why Ikea needs to hurry up and get to Florida, dangit! So many things I want to do once I get my hands on that place. Great jorb!

PS: I also like Kip's expression.

Hey! This is my attempt: chair found in the streets (originally brownish-green) + t-shirt bought at a thrift store for 1 euro. Hope you can see the images!

Thank you for the inspiration lizadilly! The perfect upholstery idea for somebody as lazy as I am...(With the sleeves I made a little purse-cozy for my ipod - it is posted here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875.msg1751957#msg1751957)
