Step 6: Make a shirt classier...

Find a suitable image of your starship.  My preference is for the NCC-1701 from Star Trek: TOS.  The pose of the ship will determine how you need to aim the lasers.

Find a suitable image of the starfleet crew badge.

I will not include any of the images for download since they are easy to search for.

Print it out onto a fabric page or an iron on transfer sheet.

Follow directions on how to do the iron on transfer.  These were iron on transfers for dark fabric so you had to print a non-mirrored image, peel off, and then iron on.  I used a piece of cooking parchment paper as the protective sheet to iron on the transfers.

Cut a piece of iron on fusible interfacing that is about the size of the starship saucer.  Hold the shirt up to the light and position on the inside so you can reinforce the area where you will cut to mount the laser module.
Love the shirt, but why a red shirt? Don't you remember that the redshirts are always killed?
oh, really?
In the origional Star Trek series (with Shatner, Nimoy, etc.) red shirts were worn by two groups: The first is anyone in Engineering (Scotty); Second, and more markedly, were characters that were going to be killed in the first 10 minutes. Hence, Cat Trampoline's comment as well.
haha, in the original interwebs, &quot;O RLY&quot;(oh really) is an internet meme or fad for replying in a facetious or incredulous manner in a sarcastic way. I chose the red shirt fully aware of its implications and thus incorporated it into one of my many <strike>Kirky </strike>quirky ibles(short for instructables). Welcome to ibles!
Oh no! Not an unknown crew member in a red shirt! She's DOOMED! <br> <br>Now you need the ultimate accessory: A tribble purse. <br> <br>(listens intently for either space monster music or space babe music) <br> <br>
Dangit Jim! I'm an ibler not a pret a porter couture accessory maker....wait
Now I have to put Tribble Purse on my crafts to-do list, but since I mentioned it here 100 other people will make one first. Aaugghh! <br> <br>Maybe I can sell them at the next SciFiCon and make a million bucks, er strips of latinum.
if you knit, there's this <a href="http://froginstitches.blogspot.com/2009/08/tribble.html" rel="nofollow">http://froginstitches.blogspot.com/2009/08/tribble.html</a>
I'm a doctor Jim, not a seamstress! Er, actually an almost-unemployed lab assistant. <br> <br>Thanks, I think it is actually crochet, but I can do both as long as the cats don't help. This is one project that it wouldn't even matter if there were cat hairs and snaggy bits in the finished product. <br> <br>Plush fur should work for a sewn bag, too. <br> <br>Now I have to dress myself and the dog as Trekkers for handing out Halloween candy. Or throw on an orange shirt at the last minute like usual. <br> <br>Perhaps a knitted balaclava that looks like an alien or Klingon? I could get creative with just a few changes to this basic pattern: <br>http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/snow-fooling-ski-mask <br> <br>
Qapla', Today is a good day to knit.
LOL! <br> <br>Do you suppose gummy worms would be an acceptable substitute for Gagh?
You'd better put up the ible fast, enter the Halloween contest later. Also, find something for Romulan ale.
Make it make it make it!
Very sweet. You did a great job! I love it!!!
This is awesome. :) <br /> <br />Though second on the red shirt issue! Caitlin is doomed!
What size does Corvidae take? She needs one too.
