made this before going out last saturday, its actually sewn on plain lined paper, so im guessing it wont be there after i wash it!

sorry its at the wrong angle but you can just as simply turn yer heads a little than go have to go back and edit it!

the tshirt is now filthy and stinking of smoke, but i cant bring myself to wash it at the moment. does anyone have any idea of how i could use some kind of paper but still be able to wash it?

the back...

the whole thing took me about an hour, so i wont be stuck with things to go out with again as i have lots of lined paper hanging around!

hmm... you could always fabreeze it to death?

you could scan the lined paper with design and do photo transfer onto regular cotton then cut them out and sew them on.

Not sure if it would work or not, but I would try to treat the paper with lots of scotch guard and then see if it washed well.  and if you wanted the effect of lined paper again, I would cover both sides with cold lamination before I sewed them on. if you don't want the edges to fray remember to leave an extra bit of laminate around the edges for a good seal, but if you cut it close you may get the torn effect like you have. I love the look. You always do an amazing job! Wink

* [ Cold Lamination, like in those Xyron machines and contact paper.]
Copy shops like Kinko's usually have large Xyron machines. A freind of mine made her grandson a raincoat by running the sunday comics thru it and sewing the pieces together. It was the cutest thing ever! Cheesy

{ I think Xyron is the right word... I am sure it is close... LOL } Huh

I second dyabolica's tyvek suggestion.  It's that wierd papery/plasticy stuff that they make USPS priority mailing envelopes out of - so you can even get it for free!
