I’m a giant fan of Basil Rathbone’s Sherlock Holmes in the the 1940’s film series. 1942 was the year that Universal Studios started releasing the modern-day Sherlock Holmes movies. Holmes fought Nazis, protected bomb-sights, and chased micro-film to Washington D.C.
I designed the graphic for this tee in my Paint Shop Pro program and printed it out in black and white on “Photo-Fabric” which fits in a regular printer. Then I used a yellow fabric marker to highlight certain parts of the image. I cut around the design and stitched it on to the teeshirt with my sewing machine. Then I ironed on the “S” applique. I also stitched the “1942” decal to the left sleeve.
I love wearing this shirt so I can broadcast my love for classic movies… and for Mister Rathbone, of course.
