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 7 – Buy Some Johnny Cupcakes T-Shirts

So today’s project was more like an “activity.” Since I’m in Los Angeles, I thought it was a must to check out the Johnny Cupcakes boutique on Melrose Avenue. Now, I’ve been to Johnny’s Boston shop on the swanky Newbury St. in Boston. This shop seemed a bit bigger than the Boston shop. I picked up a couple of tees that I’ve been wanting to pick up for some time now, including the iconic white and black Crossbones T-Shirt.

If you do decide to stop by Johnny Cupcakes on Melrose Avenue then I would suggest that you also cross the street and check out the Kid Robot and Loyal Army Shops. You’ll find a ton of trendy T-Shirts there as well.

Now, go buy some T-Shirts!

*I’ll also be doing a separate post covering my visit to Johnny Cupcakes in Los Angeles, complete with photos of the shop! Check back for that.

Day 6: Buy Some Johnny Cupcakes T-Shirts

The T-Shirt 365 project is free of charge, meaning, you can use the materials provided here as many times as you would like. However, I do ask that you DO NOT repost the actual project files on other websites. It would be better if you simply linked back to the particular blog post on my website! It’s good karma for you and it’ll make me super happy to see the linkback!

The goal of the project is to have enough material so that I can make a book encompassing the entire project. If all goes as planned, we’ll have something amazing available in 2012!

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!
