365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 17 – The Peanut Shirt

I’ve been eating a lot of nuts as of late. I love nuts, all kinds of nuts. My favorites include cashews and almonds. My least favorite nut is probably the peanut. I mean, they’re good if you haven’t had one for a long time, but after that, they become a bit boring. So what do you do when you’re stuck with 3 pounds of mixed nuts that include a lot of peanuts in the mix? Well, you play with them of course.

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 16 – Pac-Shirt Wallpaper

So I didn’t get a chance to do the project that I had previewed on Day 15, only because I couldn’t find the materials that I needed in the colors that I wanted (damn you Wal-Mart)! So while I work on finding the goods, I give you this peace offering. It’s a piece of wallpaper based on the Pac-Shirt Postcard from Day 13. Enjoy!

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 15 – Project Idea Sketch

Here’s a little sneak peek of what I’ve got in store for you for (hopefully) Day 16’s Project365. You might be able to figure out what it is based on its shape. I’m not gonna tell you exactly what it is right now, but you’ll find out soon enough! Finally I get to use scissors again! Think you know what it is? Leave a comment!

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 13 – Pac-Shirt Postcard

“Ditch the tie. Wear a T-Shirt.” is the motto for today’s Project365 item. I call it the Pac-Shirt Postcard. I actually came up with this idea during my recent trip to Los Angeles. Surrounded by tourist-y postcards, I realized that there was indeed a lack of T-Shirt themed postcards. Here’s my first attempt to remedy that situation.

I had a couple of ideas for the front of the postcard, but ultimately ended up going with a Pac-Man theme. In lieu of Pac-Man, we’ve got a makeshift T-Shirt Pac-Shirt and instead of ghosts, we have neck ties and bow ties – the ultimate T-Shirt adversary. Enjoy!

Note: the Pac-Shirt Postcard is sized according to standard shape and size guidelines according to the United States Postal Service. The card is 6” long X 4 1/4” high.

Day 13: Pac-Shirt Postcard

Materials:

  1. Thick Card Stock Paper (paper should be around 0.007-0.016 inches thick or 80-120 pounds should to do the trick)
  2. Color Inkjet Printer

Instructions:

  1. Insert paper into printer and print the front postcard file (file labeled Postcard-Front.jpg).
  2. Once the front of the postcard has finished printing, flip it over and insert into your printer once more and print the back of the postcard (file labeled Postcard-Back.jpg).
  3. Cut postcard out of the paper.
  4. Write a message and send to someone who needs to wear a little less ties and a bit more T-Shirts!

This Pac-Shirt Postcard was inspired by Pac-Man.

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 11 – Origami T-Shirt

Growing up, I used to love doing origami. In fact, I believe that I still do have a box of origami supplies hidden somewhere in my old room at my parents house. All of my old origami projects should also be in that box! For today’s Project365, I turn an ordinary dollar bill into a T-Shirt. Unfortunately, you can’t wear this particular T-Shirt, but you can keep it in your wallet for good luck!

This Origami T-Shirt was inspired by a photo by Flickr member Vaguely Artistic.

To make you own Origami T-Shirt, please refer to these instructions by Clay Randall.

Day 11: Origami T-Shirt

Here’s the front of the T-Shirt. Nifty collar, huh?!

And here’s the back of the T-Shirt. Wouldn’t it be cool if the seal was on the front of the T-Shirt instead?

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 10 – Purple T-Shirt

If I was a superhero, this would probably be my superhero seal! But what would my super powers be? Rapidly putting on and removing tees isn’t that useful? It would be great if T-Shirts, for me, worked as an invisibility cloak. Put on a T-Shirt and I go invisible. That would be pretty damn cool. So many things that I could do with THAT T-Shirt.

In any case, I again continue my “on vacation” series of Project365 posts. Today I give you the second iPhone Wallpaper of the year. It’s simple and features my favorite color (for T-Shirts) over the last few months – purple!

By the way, tomorrow I’ll be back home in Honolulu and that means we can go back to doing more crafty things! I’m excited!

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 8 – Mickey Tees

As you may know, I’m on the road and playing tourist in Los Angeles. So, there’s not much I can do “craft” wise for my 365 Days of T-Shirts. But what I can do is get creative. Having said that, today’s Project365 was inspired by the very popular Mr. Tee by Phil Jones. Today’s leg of my trip involved a visit to the happiest place on Earth: Disneyland. This is what I made with the T-Shirts that I had on hand (by the way, those were the three T-Shirts that I wore during the first thee days of my trip). Enjoy!
