Instructables T-Shirt

"These shirts are hand-made art silkscreened in Northern California on high-quality American Apparel t-shirts." how about an instructable on how these t-shirts are made? I'd love to learn how to screen print shirts that look as professional. btw - what's with the search function on this site? it doesn't exactly...function... very well, does it?

Decorating Plastic Crates With Old T-shirts (not a Tutorial)

Instructables editors are really fighting for their step-by-step how to make format, and I can understand them, cause it's after all distinctive feature of a site. But at the same time I'm having a hard times at dealing with my frustration over... I guess, life in general , so after trying to post this thing as an instructable (unsuccessfuly even after adding photoes of my pets as step 1 and 2) I had no choice but to publish it here. So here we go, uncut directors version with cats and dogs. Just want to share the idea, since I'm not going to replicate this old project any soon and thus making a propper instructable. So, plastic crates are nice way to store things, but they look not very interior-friendly for most living... interiors. But you can upgrade their apperance using some old t-shirts for prise of couple of hours of tedios work... I meant, exiting crafting. Well, ok, while I like the result I got, the process itself is not something I want to repeat ocasionaly. But, anyway, I believe, you'll be abe to decide for yourself. The process consists mainly from two operations: 1. Cutting t-shirts into strips: use scissors and cut them as a spiral starting from the bottom. Sleaves will produse shorter pieces, and the even shorter strips from remaining cut-offs can be used for wrapping handles. ...And since Instructables editors don't tolerate 1 step instructables, this is my dog on the photo, from when he was younger. 2. Weaving strips into the crates: most of those plastic crates have grid-like structure filling the main frame. Use openings in the grid to put strips in and out. Take a time to think through of the weaving pattern you want to achieve and the sequense of actions before doing something - it's much easyer than undoing and redoing things. Do not use very long pieces of strips since it's not very convenient weave like this. Tie new sections to the previous ones and hide knots inside the crate (I used knots as a decoration on the white and red one, but I'm not sure if I like it). It may look a bit messy inside. ...and this is my cat, from when she was alive... and quiet possibly, possessed. It takes roughly 2 medium size t-shirts for one crate of this size (the photo). It doesn't matter if the shirt has some printing on it since the edges of the cutten strips tend to curl to the face surface of the fabric leaving the image not visible in the result. I guess this is it, thanks for the attention and have a nice crates.

How can I make a new t-shirt softer?

I have a few t-shirts I have gotten as gifts that I absolutely love, but they are that new, "stiff" feeling cotton shirts... I would love to find a way to make them feel more "well-worn" and aged. Not necessarily vintage-y, just softer, more broken in, as if they've been worn for years. Is there any way to do this, besides just using copious amounts of fabric softener?

I recently have started selling my hand painted shirts at local markets. I bought my original shirts from a company now out of business, and my supply is starting to dwindle. I would like to buy U.S made or organic, but most of the shirts I've seen cost way more then my meager budget will allow.   Mostly I'm looking for extra-large, large and medium mens or unisex sizes. Anybody got any ideas where to look locally or online?

Krylon Spray Paint on fabric?

I have heard that Krylon spray paints can be used with stencils on T-Shirts. In fact their website even has a few project ideas along those lines. What I'm wondering is, how permanent is it? It seems so much easier to do than making silk screens and buying special paint, almost to easy....which makes me wonder if it dries really stiff and cracks.

Hardening Play Doh Kinda Stuff

Hi There! I need some kind of stuff, that acts like Play Doh at first and after a while gets really hard without any heat or preassure ore anything applied. Since I don't exactly know what I'm looking for or how to call, I haven't been able to search anywhere... I need to use a small amount on a hinge on my headphones. The hinge looks kinda like this: |     | |     | |-T-|    |  /   \ with the T part able to rotate. The little horizontal part is kinda broken, so that the T sometimes slips out, which is kinda annyoing while listening to music ;) I don't want to glue it in, because then it won't be able to rotate anymore. So if you have any idea how to call the stuff I'm looking for, or even better, got a recipe how to do it myself, I would really appreciate it! Thank you very much!
