I found the hoodie I was talking about! Here's the link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107227.0

I saw a hoodie on here a while back that had these dinos on it and I fell in love w/ it and had to have one of my own. I don't remember who it was, but if you find this thread, feel free to tell me!
Here's my take on it:

^Me wearing it. My b/f said I had dino boobies. lol^

I bought this t-shirt b/c it was really comfortable, then I wanted to paint on it. So I was like "It's blue, I'm going to put clouds all over it" And I did. I just cut a sponge in a cloud shape and went to work.
Before washing:

After washing:

I actually like it A LOT more this way...

And this isn't really painted, but tie-dyed. I was really proud of myself that I did it w/o messing up too horribly. My b/f's friend wanted one so I made myself one too :-). I didn't intend for so much white to be there, but I kinds like it.

Once again, thanks for looking!

Aww I love the dino one Smiley  Did you freehand it?

« Reply #2 on: June 27, 2007 05:47:51 PM »

No, I didn't freehand it. I traced around my little dinosaur I printed out with a silver paint pen. Then I flipped it over and did the other dino. I did however freehand the bow and heart. lol.

Nice! I love them all, especially the tye-dye for some reason. I can never do that right.

Nice tie-dye!  It looks like a ripple effect- how'd you do it?

Thanks for the comments!
For the tie-dye, I was really apprehensive at first, but I just bought one of those tie-dye kits at Wal-mart and went to work. To get the ripple effect (I guess that's what it's called. lol) I just found the middle of the shirt and pinched it and put the rubber bands about two or three inches apart until I got to the bottom. If that's confusing I could make a diagram or something to show you how I did it. It turned out a lot better that I expected.
