Making some threads (clothes)....helpz

Guys! My mother insists on me buying new clothes, but most of the stuff here is too gansta for my tastes, so i've decided to make some myself.

I want some T shirts and maybe 2 or 3 jackets.

oKay, so here's some of the stuff I want:

I need help in the following things:

  • How to make my own - Tshirts are easy enough, Ill just make some iron ons, theres ibles on this subject If I remember correctly

Its the jacket that worries me, I like the sort of jacket thats fuzzy on the outside. I would like to know if Iron ons would work on this fabric (I'll check what fabric it is later) Or if you know of any other methods.

  • ALso, do you have any suggestions for logos that would make cool shirts?

I would go with stencil and spray paint, its a good look but if you do it wrong you end up with stiff shirts.

You can laugh, but even your avatar would make a cool T-shirt logo. (What is it, anyway? Your company logo?)

I am guessing that ironing would not work, given that "fuzzy jackets" (they're called "fleeces" around here, I don't know if that's a regional thing) are literally plastic. Assuming that you are referring to Polartec, the "fuzzyness" is polyester fibers (i.e., PET, or soda bottles), which I don't think can be ironed hot enough for iron-on stuff to stick. Also, I think that the fabric texture might cause problems.

Now that I think about it, though, you could use the meltyness to your advantage, and emboss your logo on. Melt the fabric just enough to leave a defined impression, but not so much as to destroy the thermal properties of the fabric, or the fabric itself.

You could use some of the wallpapers from their site.

In fact, the 800 x 600's look perfect for a shirt.

and my particular favorite
