T-Shirts!

Well, sort of.


I'm working with a local print shop to determine the feasibility of actually screen printing shirts, hoodies, bags... In the meantime, since time is short and I know folks are wanting shirts for this weekend, I decided to test the Avery transfer paper from Wal-Mart.


I have this image set up as a brown sheep or a white sheep. If you are printing on a light colored shirt, you need to reverse it - follow the directions included with whatever transfer product you choose. I've only tested the light colored transfer on a white shirt and it looks like it worked just fine (click to biggify). I have a gray shirt to test the dark transfer paper this morning.

The reviews are mixed on how well they'll hold up, but the t-shirt was $6 and the transfer paper (for a whole package) was about $8 I think. If you'd like to make your own t-shirt for this weekend, send me an email letting me know which color you'd like and I'll get a high resolution file sent out as quickly as possible.

Like a free downloadable knitting pattern, this is for your personal use only. If you'd like to make and sell t-shirts, talk to me first. We can probably work something out if there is a good charity involved.

For an easier, but slightly more expensive route, I set up a Cafe Press shop. I've not seen the final product, but it "looks good on paper". For the free, not for (your own) profit shop, they'll only let you set up one design, so don't be looking for other colors or sizes of the logo... Still, I think a pink tee that I didn't have to worry about ironing on crooked has it's appeal ;-).

Very cute! Brown sheep looks like Finley now.

If we are free to have this pattern for our own use, I could think of some other applications - embroidery, cross-stitch, locker-hooking and needle felting!

I designed it, but my brother-in-law cleaned up the jagged lines for me. Thanks, Pete!
