Since I’m finally home and have way too much creative energy, I decided to make myself some Nerdfighter t-shirts!
The first one is a TFiOS ”Ceci n’est pas un livre” (This is not a book) shirt. In homage to Hazel’s “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” [and Hank’s “Ceci n’est pas un corndog] t-shirt, I thought this would be a cool idea to do with TFiOS. The book is hand painted, and the text was done with a fabric marker. I cut the neckline and then hand-stitched black and white along the sleeves.
The second one is a DFTBA shirt, inspired by Karen Kavett. I screen printed this using the little kit I have with a stencil I made from Karen Kavett’s DFTBA jewelry design. I then cut the neckline and sleeves and hand-stitched dark green all aroundto make it look slightly more distressed.
These only cost me around $9, since all I needed to buy were the t-shirts and fabric pen. All-in-all, I’m rather pleased with how they came out.
Remember that time when I made this, and then someone stole it, and then Tyler Oakley reblogged it, and now it has over 80,000 notes. Hence, none of the notes are technically mine, but c’est la vie. Though I guess it’s nice to know that tens of thousands of people have seen my handwriting now.
