This is the story of the band teeshirts. (at eleven PM, of course)
Once upon a time, there were two girls (Elissa and me, Maggie) in love with a british band (originally from a book, and then a movie, and finally evolving into an actual group) with the name the Stiff Dylans.
Yes, a little strange.
Sadly, this band did not have merchandise, and they operated far away- oversees shipping is very expensive.
So, they decided to do something about it, and figured out how to stencil.
Luckily, all the supplies were already lying around, except for teeshirts that ended up being pretty cheap!! (Yay for Old Navy and all their sales!)
First, they cut the design out in freezer paper. It took a ****ing long time- there are lots of details. (Elissa's, of course, looked much better then mine- this one is mine).
I enjoy macro too much- this is the stencil again!
Next comes the fun part- painting in the stencils. (After the boringness of ironing and all that blegh.) Half way there!!
Finally we were done! Now all we had to do was wait four hours for them to dry. Luckily, it was about midnight, and we just passed out as we waited.
An added photo of the two shirts together on the ironing board (our table). With all my books behind them, of course.
Next comes the very scary part of pulling off the stencil- will it look okay?!?!?!
Luckily, they turned out fantastically! This one's mine. As you can see, we had to do bridges in the D and the A, and no, we haven't bothered filling them in. Drying overnight, again? No thanks. We'll do it some other time. =) (Yeah, so we're lazy, so what??)
Next, the pictures of us wearing them! Warning: If you don't like PJ pants with AMAZING shirts to match, well. That sucks.
And an extra one of them together.
I AM SO EXCITED!
