Sleepy Dan: You Snooze You Lose!

There seems to be some sort of indie T-Shirt rennaissance happening in Dallas, TX. Fur Face Boy, Grits Apparel … and now Sleepy Dan. Dallas is certainly home to some playfully inspired up-and-coming indie T-Shirt brands. Sleepy Dan is certainly one of those up-and-coming brands that you should keep an eye on.

Sleepy Dan recently released their first collection of T-Shirts, aptly named Series 1. The collection features a set of 6 T-Shirt designs loosely centered on the theme of sleeping. So expect to see things like alarm clocks and pillows in the Sleepy Dan designs. Sleepy Dan also features a few homages to pop culture, as seen in the Sleepy Bowser and Big D T-Shirt.

The Sleepy Dan T-Shirts are priced at $26 a piece and are available now at the Sleepy Dan Shop. You can also find a limited selection of ladies sized tees and a Series 1 Sleepy Dan sticker and button fan pack.

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 4 – Making of Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow

The great thing about the 365 Days of T-Shirts Project is that I don’t need to do something complicated every day. Today, I post a few photos that I took while the Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow was being made. Those hands are my mom’s hands. She refused to allow me to video record her doing her thing! Enjoy!

365 Days of T-Shirts: Day 3 – Threadless Punk Rock Cock Throw Pillow

Don’t get me wrong, I love each of my Threadless tees. However, my Punk Rock Cock T-Shirt suffered from a stretched out collar. As such, it wasn’t so great for wearing anymore. So it sat, unsued, in my drawer for a long time. That was until I came up with the idea to turn Aled Lewis’ classic tee into a one-of-a-kind Threadless throw pillow.

Although I came up with the idea, I have to say thank you to my mom for having the know how to actually make it into a tangible product. Thanks mom!

Having said that, the pillow is super comfy and very stylish – I Love It! I should also note that screen printed tag from the T-Shirt is sewn on to the back of the pillow (I thought that would be cool). We were originally going to use the entire T-Shirt for the pillow cover (minus the green), but the punk rock cock graphic was situated in such a way that it would have been impossible to cut a perfect square without the cock being off-center. So instead, we decided to cut a tight square around the cock and then use green fabric for the rest of the pillow. Doing this added a nice border around the front graphic.

101 Mustache Gift Giving Ideas

Moustaches, mustaches, mostaccio, mustaccio, moustakion … no matter how you spell it, moustaches were all the rage in 2009. You notice a lot of trends as a blogger and I’ve noticed that a lot of people love to not only grow moustaches but they like to have them adorn the products that they wear and use on a daily basis. Rangga over at Cottonable.com came up with a great idea to do a moustache T-Shirt list. However, I thought I’d go a step further and include a variety of moustache gift giving ideas for those of you looking to purchase not just T-Shirts. Having said that, you’ll find moustache shirts, mugs, bandanas, necklaces, pillows and a slew of other moustache products! Enjoy this list and be sure to thank Rangga for coming up with this hairy idea!

Note: You’ll notice a bunch of different “moustache” spelling throughout the post. This was done on purpose as I used whatever spelling found was in the product name.
