I wasn't sure if I would have time in college to make another t-shirt, but some friends and I took advantage of the three-day weekend to make some t-shirts.
After an unreasonably long and stressful search for fabric medium, and some black magic printing out the stencils, we were ready to craft.
We had all the major geek subjects covered-- LOTR, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones-- for our t-shirt designs.
I found a foam paintbrush stuck away in some box I had packed.
We watched some Downton Abby-- a wonderful show I was just introduced to-- while we cut out our designs.
Speaking of amazing shows, I saw the season premiere of dr who this weekend! Epicness.
Coming to college I had just briefly heard of this show called Dr. Who-- my roommate at the time was a big fan, but I wasn't really interested. She knew some people who were going to get together and watch an episode-- I tagged along because I didn't have anything better to do and ended up being introduced to the most amazing show ever. I was hooked-- okay mostly drastically confused-- by the first episode, and it just got better from there. Now a year later I am the one trying to convert everyone I know into rabid Dr Who fans.
Anyway! There were no Dr Who shirts to be made this time around. Maybe next time. I'm not too happy with how my old dr who shirt turned out-- there was a lot of bleeding around the letters. The more t-shirts I do, the more I learn so I might make another dr who shirt.
My design! Let me tell you, cutting out those tiny little delicate hobbit letters was a mess. I thought for sure that my crude cuts with the knife would result in a messy quote.
As for the game of thrones shirt...use your imagination? I don't have a picture of the final project (I'll post it later!) but rest assured it had amazingly crisp lines.
Anyway! My crafting summer has continued onto the school year it would seem! I am instructing my friends in my crafty ways :P
I'll post better final photos later! We, being the wonderful geeks we are, are planning on wearing our shirts on the same day and I'll get photos then. :)
