Your shirt reminds me a little of the very funny "What would Johnny Damon Do?" shirts I've been seeing around here in Boston. You could stencil up a "WWWD?" shirt with the same graphic. It'd be great! I mean, I don't think it would be disrespectful to...um...ya know, the big J.

In the meantime, in betweentime, I'll be stencilling my own "Viva La Revolucion" shirts with scary red left-wing fonts! Wink

That's awesome!  I bet that shirt will look so great.  I like the WWWD? idea.  good times.  I might have to use someone else's name and picture for that instead though.  like.....I don't know....WWMTD? What would Mr. T do? or something of the like.  Thanks for the idea and good luck with your shirt and especially with those SCARY red left-wing fonts....haha...I'm sure they'll be terrifyingly cool.  Adios

Very cool shirt.  I am endlessly fascinated by screen printing, but have yet to try it.  Maybe when my daughter is older - right now she is a little too fascinated with all of my crafts to break out the paints.....

<snort>  WWMTD?  That is GREAT!!  You could have a stencil with a mohawk and big ugly gold chains.

and I agree - just b/c I didn't vote for Bush doesn't mean that I can't appreciate great crafts and fun ideas....  of course since it is looking like Dubya is going to be around for 4 more, the dems/libs could have thier own shirts --  WWKD  Roll Eyes

I just used fabric paint and a sponge to do this shirt.  It was super easy and fast. 


Whoohoooooooooooooooo!  Pardon my excitement....

usually crafty people aren't republican for they tend to think for themselves.  but good job on the shirt

That is just childish, as well as being incorrect.  I am a Republican, yet have always been incredibly crafty, and independent minded.  Crafting and creativity is something that supercedes political lines.  Though, occasionally certain craft has fallen victim to politics (like knitting, which was previously rejected by feminists).  But, crafting isn't about politics. It's about an expression of self.

Also, regardless of political affiliation, some people tend to let others decide for them, and some people think for themselves.  That has nothing to do with which party you are a member of.  I know just as many liberals as conservatives who blindly follow party lines. 

Despite seeing plenty of posts in this forum that politically I do not agree with, I bite my tounge and do the mature thing of abstaining from comment, unless it is constructive and considerate of others.  Perhaps you should consider trying to do the same.  It's fine if you don't like Bush (I'm not all that happy with him either), but is it absolutely necessary to insult someone's craft because of your political views? You can just ignore posts such as these, and instead add a pro-Kerry message in a pro-Kerry forum/thread.  This country would be far better off if people were less negative, bitter, and nasty to each other, and more respectful of each other and our differences.

You know what is really sad?? I was relying on these boards to be the one place I could get away from politics... This is the only board I have been to where everyone has been nice and not bashed eachother on anything (not just politics) until now. Everyone should just keep their political standpoint to themself, at least on this board.

I think your shirt turned out wonderfully.  Stenciling is something I've not tried yet, and I'm always a bit jealous of those who can do it well.  I haven't yet come up with a subject matter I really want to try, so I've been thinking about just drawing my own.  (If Dubya was my thang, I might ask you if I could borrow yours, but don't take offense if that doesn't happen. Wink )

Which just goes to show that not all of we nasty liberals can be expected to take cheap shots.  (A comment I felt was a bit of a cheap shot itself, but I forgive you.  I'm probably just as proud of bearing the title "liberal" as you are of being a Republican.  We just have to remember we've got common ground on Craftster.)   

For some reason, I'm not so in to Mr. T.  But for all you republicans out there (or really anyone, because who doesn't like Michael J. Fox), what about a stencil of Alex P. Keaton with "WWAD" under it?  Ooh, I just noticed that spells a long, drawn-out wad.  OK, maybe not...  On to the next craft.

I'm sorry about the outspoken democrats making the low punches, meg. you did an awesome job on your shirt, and I agree that it's super neat you were able to use anti-signs for good.
I dont know about anyone else, but I always have "What Would Martha Do?" in the back of my mind when I attempt the projects on craftster.
WWMSD?  Wink
haha, WWAD. waaaad. thats too funny.  Cheesy
