T-shirt designs Finished on Shirts: Camera Guy
« on: January 10, 2014, 09:10:50 AM »
My DH takes photos at our grandchildren's sports games, sometimes 2 or 3 times a week depending on the season.  Our GK's do soccer, baseball, basketball and volley ball so he is busy.

I decided he needed a "uniform" so I made him this t-shirt.  It was done starting with a stick figure and I added the clothes and his signature hat (actually this hat looks better than the one he really wears  :lol:

Since the original stick figure I used was a copyright I don't feel comfortable sharing the file but it wasn't that hard.

Love it. Looks great and much better than a standard stick figure.
What did you use to put the image on the shirt? Is it the stuff you print then iron?

Thanks, you start with the stick figure and draw on the clothes, not too hard.

Yes, the iron on stuff.  I usually use Avery Inkjet Transfers because they give a more inked on feel but had run out so I used Hewlet Packard brand which I had forgotten gives a heavier vinyl feel.  Look for a HOT peel if you like the inked feel or COLD peel if you prefer the vinyl one.  The vinyl one does soften up after a few washings and the colors are very bright…a matter of preference.

I hope you make some for your big trip, a really inexpensive way to have some speciality t's.

Happy to see that you can get over here (both to America and to to Forum….you've been missed.

You definitely are a mind reader. I am planning on customising some t-shirts for our holiday. Ever since I saw the ones you made for your Hawaiian holiday, I have been thinking of ideas for our holiday. It is about time I started using Inkscape and designing again. I bought the t-shirts before Christmas, all I need now is the design.

The hardest thing for me in makeing t-shirt designs is to remember that this will NOT be cut, only printed, so many the steps you would usually go through are not necessary for only a print.  I use print/preview in Inkscape to frequently take a look to see it.

Hope to see some shirt designs before you leave Carolyn!
