Today is my dad's birthday, and he's a big trumpet player. He belongs to a senior drum & bugle corp and recently joined up with the Drew Carey Band for the Seattle Sounders (the Sounders' pep band). So, for his birthday I wanted to make him a trumpet themed t-shirt, but I couldn't come up with any ideas. Because I was lacking any inspiration, I went on to Cafe Press to see what other people had come up with so I could, admittedly, steal their ideas.  Tongue

I thought this one was great and knew I had to copy it.

The shirt was hanging on a hanger, that's why there's those wrinkles. I also touched up the paint green of the green square after I took the picture.

The second one I saw I thought was fantastic. It was just the silhouette of the man playing his trumpet and at the bottom it said, "got trumpet?" I decided to make the trumpet gold and put, "pardon me if I toot my own horn" on the back.

I took the picture of the back of the shirt while I was in my car. I had it draped over my steering wheel, and the light was really bright, thus the "white" stripe down the side.

He seemed to get a kick out of them, and the rest of my family and coworkers thought they were great.
