Picture of The Raven T-shirt

The T-shirt contest has inspired me to make this t-shirt for my grandson who loves this song: .  He thought the picture of the raven was awesome.  I could not buy a t-shirt like the logo of this group so I made a practice one.  I am happy with the results and will be trying different methods until I find the perfect design and application.  I did not know how to go about making it and was concerned about all the details of the raven.  I have more to add to the shirt I will be sending him for Christmas but was so impressed with this one I thought I would share it here on Instructables.

Iron the interfacing:
  • Iron the interfacing to the black fabric on the wrong side.  
  • I laid another piece of fabric over the top so the iron would not stick.

Step 4: Pinning The Pattern
