Do Your Own Star Trek Sweat Shirt !





Introduction: Do Your Own Star Trek Sweat Shirt !

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 extended. Trek fail...

    I've never noticed that before, but you're right!

    Oops !!! I can't be forgive for this huge mistake!
    Thank you for this information! :)
    I am puting it in the first step explanation :)

    Going to make this for my dad he loves star trek! GREAT INSTRUCTABLE! :)

    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.
    The other zipper hoodie idea can be seen here:,guys/style,zipup

    Ha! They also got it wrong with the thumb in the wrong position.
