Okay, so first off, I work at a Sign Shop, which gives me access to vinyl plotters, so I ordered up red and white heat transfer vinyl to spice up some t-shirts. The instructions state that you need a heat press to stick the vinyl on the clothing, but my co-worker and I wanted to try it with just a regular iron, because we don't have a heat press in the shop.
So this idea led me to make these Toyota shirts for my boyfriend.  He LOVEESSSS Toyota (and owns two Toyota Vehicles), and we both agreed that there aren't many decent Toyota shirts out there, so I came up with these.  I finally got them done today (his birthday is tomorrow).  Getting the vinyl to stick was a little tricky, and it does take a lot of patience when just using an iron.
Anyway, here's the pictures.

And the Back:

Toyota Racing Development

and a close up of the letters:

JDM is Japanese Domestic Market, which is Japanese Branded Goods, including Automotive Parts.  He calls himself "JDM" because he has a Toyota Station Wagon that was re-built completely by parts shipped over from Japan.

And here's his obsession, Taking in downtown Chicago. Smiley

We had some vinyl left over, so we cut some extra goodies which I will put on more shirts, or purses etc.

Thanks for Looking!

Aww yeah. My boyfriend drives an '88 Corolla. I think he too should be showing his love on a t-shirt.
