This shirt was inspired by a shirt I saw in a tiny little store in London when I was there. It also said “I make things” (yes, it does say that on my shirt even though you probably can barely make it out in the photo) but I think had a brush and paint splatters or something on it… Don’t really remember.
The shirt is a very simple almost rectangular pattern I improvised and for the print I made a stencil and used fabric paint.
The writing is a handwriting-like font that I already had in my massive collection of fonts on my computer and therefor could just print out. It’s done with a very close zig-zag stitch on my machine.
As the lighting in the picture is very dramatic and pretty but not very good for seeing the print, I also added the picture I made in photoshop to use as a stencil. If anyone wants to use it, go ahead.
Also, check out my blog, please :) I talk a bit more over there. Maybe you’ll find it interesting, who knows ;)
