Okay, so being as detail-less as possible, there is an absolutely hilarious stain on my sheets that is rather defined in a fantastic shape. I would LOVE to take this and make a silkscreen of it on a t-shirt for my boyfriend, but all the photos I've taken are horribly blurry (I think my camera is confused because I'm trying to take photos of a sheet, it can't pick what to focus on) and I'm not sure if it'd be worth it to try to SCAN a SHEET.

Can anyone think of a clever way to get the image to make a silkscreen? Thanks, I appreciate it. And if I was wrong posting this, I'm sorry, I'll delete it, but this has been driving me crazy, and I really wanna do this.

How about pulling the sheet tight over something hard and tracing the erm, stain with vellum or tracing paper and then using that?

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

Even simpler, why not make the shirt out of the sheet?

Or is that gross?

If it's just a blotch, I would just take your sheet and lay it flat out on a table or counter or whatever flat surface I have and trace the thing directly onto my screen.

Photocopy it, if you can.  You can actually photocopy it directly onto a transparency and make the whole process so much easier. Ew.

haha this is so amazing you're my new favorite person.

On a more on topic note. I have to agree with everyone on tracing it in one way or another.
