Introduction: Do Your Own Star Trek Sweat Shirt !

About: I enjoy using my hands to create something and then share it!!!!!

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 !!! ;)

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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 :)

    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: http://www.threadless.com/product/2464/Traditional_Greeting/tab,guys/style,zipup

    That's a great idea. I love it! I noticed that if the sweatshirt is zipped completely, you have the Hand of Buddha.

    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.
