If you are fan of Star Trek this instructable is for you !!!! 

You will find here a good way to build a stencil and create a hand on a sweat shirt and when you open the zip Live long qnd Prosper appears! :)

FOR STAR TREK FAN : Sorry, Let's notice this fail as normally the thumb have to be separate from the hand !!! ;)

And for person which don't have the time to do it as I saw the idea previously, you can get it here :

Be fair, but share :)

Step 1: Illustrator File and Jpeg File

Just download the illustrator file for the hand source or download the 3 jpeg

Step 2: Create Your Stencil

It is the most difficult part of this project !

I took a thin wood sheet and I directly cut in it !

It is a 2 parts stencil.

Step 3: Let's Try the Stencil

I try my stencil on a random surface to see the result and it looks good :)

Step 4: Print on the Sweat Shirt!

You just need a regular sweatshirt.

Then I put over it the stencil.

I painted it with a spray but forgot this option and relace it with proper fabric paint.

And finally let it dry few minutes and it is done :)

Step 5: Live Long and Prosper

That's all

Have fun :)
Jeez, you're doing it wrong!!! The thumb is supposed to be <strong>extended</strong>. Trek fail...
<p>I've never noticed that before, but you're right!</p>
Wow, someone more Trekkie than I! I'm fairly sure I've seen the &quot;vulcan sign&quot; with thumb outstretched and and closed as in this 'ible. Nimoy made it up on the spot, based on something Jewish in his background.
Ha! Show me a picture of a Vulcan doing the Vulcan salute with their thumb retracted and I'll buy you a Romulan ale. (It has to be a canon Vulcan, not just some ignorant dork with rubber ears at a nerdy Trek convention).<br><br>Dif tor heh smusma.
Nice try. You mother must have been an Andorian. If you're going to try to cheat by faking a photo you might have picked a shot that didn't come from &quot;Amok Time&quot;, the most famous of all episodes featuring Vulcans. But your photoshop failure is both ironic and fitting since &quot;Amok Time&quot; was the episode that introduced the Vulcan salute as well as &quot;Live Long and Prosper&quot;.<br>
Oops !!! I can't be forgive for this huge mistake! <br>Thank you for this information! :) <br>I am puting it in the first step explanation :) <br>
Going to make this for my dad he loves star trek! GREAT INSTRUCTABLE! :)
Whoah! I remember playing that game!
Wow, really creative idea! <br>I'm gonna have a try tomorrow. Hope I wouldn't mess it up, lol. <br> <br>____ <br><a href="http://www.egotailor.com/" rel="nofollow">personalized T-Shirts</a> <br>

This is a great DIY tutorial, but I also think it's important to recognize that this idea has been also been done on Threadless. I'm not attempting to comment on originality or anything, just thought I would state that someone else has a similar idea. <br>The other zipper hoodie idea can be seen here: http://www.threadless.com/product/2464/Traditional_Greeting/tab,guys/style,zipup
Ha! They also got it wrong with the thumb in the wrong position.
Yes, you qre right it is good to mention it! it is the original idea :) but now you can do it by yourself :) <br>Thanks <br>
Sorry for the &quot;has been also been done&quot;. I should have checked my grammar. Cheers!
That's a great idea. I love it! I noticed that if the sweatshirt is zipped completely, you have the Hand of Buddha.
Good to know!! <br>I will do it on a Tshirt :) <br>Thanks <br>
as for me 'good job&quot; love it <br> <br>
I have to agree with applesforjonah, you are voilating someone's intellectual property rights as this is not even inspired by the threadless design but a blatent copy. You should consider removing this instructable before it is ordered to be removed.
This is one of the coolest things I have seen in quite some time! Bravissimo!
Oh I love this, putting it on the zipper was brilliant! Very very nice job!
Perfect birthday gift for my sister. Thank you!
