1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Zebra on Acid = Psychedelic Shirt! on: April 11, 2008 07:42:34 AM
I think this is one of the most (if not the most) crazy, psychodelic, misunderstood t shirt design/color combination I have ever made. I call it Acid Zebra.

It is just a Zebra drpping bombs and guns, "x" pills and stars. Crazy enough huh?

As you can see, the purpose of this shirt is to draw people's attention and make the user stand out of the crowd. A curious fact about it is that I cant stare at it for more than 15 seconds because it will blur my sight, it creates a cool effect to the observer, almost as being drunk or high.

I might add my url to the back of it and wear it to a night club and get some promo out of it.

I think it eneded out very interesting.


2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Club T shirt! Vinyl Transfers. on: March 20, 2008 08:11:04 PM
I do t shirts all the time, actually thats my side job. This is not exactly an inkjet transfer shirt but it is a transfer vinyl that I cut with my cutter plotter. Im not sure if this should be posted in this section, but as the process is similar than inkjet transfers, I chose to post it here.

I have been wanting to make a t shirt for myself for quite a long time. I always work for everybody else and I always leave my stuff for later...well today I made the shirt I have been wanting.

The idea was to make a "Fashion" shirt, specially for the night club scene.
This is it:

(Sorry, I cant post pics just yet, I can only post a link to them).

It is a graffiti with a 68 (or 69) Nova SS, a city landscape, some arrows and headset jacks under the car. I know it is ver colorful, but that was the idea, to make shocking design (to draw people's attention). Shirt was printed inside out (on purpose) to give it a more unique (or retarded  Wink) look.

I would like to read your feedback, but honest feedback. What do you ladies and gentlemen think about it?


3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Newbie: Problems with sewing machine! on: March 03, 2008 09:49:58 AM
Hi friends
I make t shirts using different methods such as screenprinting and Termoflex (vinyl) and sometimes (the least) heat transfers. I recently purchased an used Kenmore 15208 Sewing machine to sew things, make thread patterns and add some style to some of my shirts. The thing is that I didnt get the instruction manual. I am encountering some troubles with it and would like to review the manual.
I've never used a sewing machine before but somebody is showing me the basics and we got stuck as the machine is doing something strange. Instead of pulling the thread from the roll on top, it is pulling the thread you let loose after passing it trough the needle. I dont know if Im making sense here, English is my second language and sometimes Im not clear enough. There is a link to an image to describe my problem.
Machine is supposed to pull the thread from the roll on top (#1) but it is pulling it form the side (#2)


Anyways, I was just wondering if any of you had this manual in pdf or can make me a scanned copy so I can take a look.

I will appreciate any help.

Thank you

Im not sure if this is the right forum section to place my question. If it is not, excuse me for that.
