g'day g'day! this be my first posted project evar here! um, without further ado...

to understand/'get' the master wit behind this shirt of mine, you'll need to know what this is (if you don't already):

it's tamagotchi feces. so, now you're enlightened...

get it? [tamagotchi poo/shit] happens! shit happens! i think it's funny, anyway.

to do this i just, very painfully, measured (oh so precisely) and cut (as oh so straightly as i could) pieces of brown felt and (again, oh so painfully) sewed them by hand onto the shirt. towards the end, on the back, the letters get a little closer together because i miscalculated the spaceage between them. =\ but not a bad job overall, i think.

i wonder how well the felt will last after a couple of wash cycles... if i sewed them there well enough- but this is my first sewing project of any kind, and we've all got to start learning somewhere. =D

i love this idea, nice concept Cheesy could work with, 'hits the fan' too...

i'm another person that pain-steakingly hand-sews felt onto stuff, although ive never tried it on anything as great as this Smiley

well done, an excellent first-post!

Haha, that's cool, I like it how you did it with felt. I can't believe you sewed it by hand, that's real effort, go you!
