A new shirt

After years of just the Robot being the only Instructables shirt, we decided to make a small batch of a new design. It's simple and straightforward and, for me at least, sums up the experience of sharing project ideas. Right now they're only available in the store here. If people like them we may make more. What do you think?

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?

T- shirt cannon

Does anyone have any ideas for a t-shirt cannon? I really want to build one. I've seen them for $2000.00 and I know I could make one for much less. My budget is about $40.00 and I have weeks to build it. Plans would be Awsome.

Robot T-shirts- the Extended Family

Check it out- someone made an awesome list of 50 Robot t-shirts! There are some pretty fabulous designs- I particularly like the Robot vs. Monkey Dance-Off, RoboFrankenstein, Every Skyline Needs a Giant Robot, and the Robot Dance Contest. Our favorite robot is somewhere about half-way down. We clearly need to take some classy pictures with real live models. Maybe someone around here has a camera...

Thank you, Instructables!

Just a public thank you to the Robot and staff for the T-shirt. I don't know what I've done to deserve it, but I very much appreciate the recognition. What a great community this is! Best regards, Michael Kelsey

The Canadian Robot

I don't know about anybody else, but the redrawn Robot on the robot contest banner quite appeals to me. For some reason, it feels like he should have a Canadian accent... I'm not suggesting replacing *the* Robot, but it would be nice to see the Canadian version appearing on merchandise, say as a small logo on a shirt, or on a new badge. I would certainly have made this project easier to make... EDIT: I roughed up some versions of my own, with a combination of Inkscape and an oooold copy of Photoshop.

How to "screen" text onto a shirt? please help!!!

I have read some great tutorials on how to do inexpensive screen printing using the modgepodge method and sewing looms, but that just seems WAY too painstaking to try and use that same method for applying lines of text to fabric. what's more, I can't see someone wasting an entire screen for just a few lines of text, even if they were using traditional screen printing methods. Other than iron-on transfers, what other ways might people be applying text to their items? I hope I make sense, I just have been needing to know this for some time now! The picture i have included is an example of what i am trying to learn. They say it's all "screened" but if so someone please explain to me how this is done! and if there is anyway to do it inexpensively.

Make tee shirt wall art without cutting?

Hi. This isn't a very complex project (not like some of the stuff I've seen on here), but I've decided to buy a few T-shirts for myself. Now, they're somewhat rare, as they're promotional items for a project that has since ended, and as much as I'd like to wear them, the only ones left are a tad too small. So I had decided to make them into wall art (as shown in this article: https://www.instructables.com/id/T-Shirt-Wall-Art/), but I'd like to do so without cutting or stapling them. If anyone has any ideas for how I can do this, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks.

Instructables T-shirt Giveaway (Closed)

Hey guys and recently I came in the nine runners up the K'nex toys and rods connectors contest 2014 and I have received my prize a week ago but the t-shirt that came with the K'nex set was to small for me and it wasn't the colour I thought it would be so I'am giving it away to the person that asks for it will get it. The t-shirt is purple and in size medium.

Has the "store" (t-shirts or other items) gone away?

Am I missing something, or have I lost a portion of my mind and we never had one?  I thought, at one time, we had a place to go to make our own shirts, but I have since lost the link, and can't find it here either.

Scrolling LED Sign on a T-Shirt?

How would I go about making a scrolling LED message with LEDs in a shirt? I found the LilyPad arduino/conductive thread, so I have a start, but I don't really know what size it should be (height wise, I want it to wrap all the way around me). Any ideas?I want it to sort of look like this, but less 'fancy'.http://www.erogear.com/

So Many T-Shirts!

Instructables just got in a brand new shipment of t-shirts today.  Being that I get to count and stock them, I decided to take a little bit of extra time and write up a forum topic about it. Why you ask?  Well let me tell you.  We have a whole lot of extra t-shirts right now, and I think it would be fun to give one away. So here's the deal: Take a couple of glances at the pictures posted, and let me know how many t-shirts you think we have here at headquarters.  The person who is closest gets a t-shirt (and possibly a couple of other goodies). Now here's a little fine print.  I know there are a lot of people out there who already have t-shirts and have no desire to have another one.  So for those of you who already have a t-shirt, try to win one for someone else.  Upon wining this little grab bag, I'll pm the user and ask who they want their t-shirt to go to.  The winner is by all means welcome to keep it, but if they already have one, I would hope they will donate it to a user in need, who has always wanted one, but never had the means to get one. One last thing: I'll give everyone two guesses.  Any more then two and you disqualify yourself from winning.  If anyone manages to get the number spot on, you'll get (what I consider) and awesome grab bag (that I've not yet devised), as well as two additional t-shirts that you can give to whomever. This package is going to be shipped out Monday afternoon, so all entries need to be in by Monday, 1000 PDT! Good Luck. UPDATE 1:  The answer to this query, is 493.  Now it's time to search through the results and see where people are.  Give me a half hour and I'll publish the results. UPDATE 2: FINAL RESULTS! Surprisingly, no one guessed the exact answer. TNEN guessed 495, which just beat out KevinMatchstick by 1.  Which makes TNEN our t-shirt champion!  -I will be contacting TNEN to see if he wants the t-shirt, or if he is going to be giving it to someone else. For making my laugh, both 9VoltWiseMan and caitlinsdad will get to donate a shirt to someone in need (fine print: it can't be for them, and who they give it to can't already have one).  So I will be contacting them as well. Thank you everyone for guessing!  Hopefully I have time during the next shipment to take pictures again!

Runner Up Prize Pack options?

Hello, I see that as a Runner-Up winner for the Summer Fun contest, I can either receive a t-shirt or stainless steel mug. However, when I click on the link to claim my prize, I only see the option for t-shirt sizes, and no option to choose the stainless steel mug. Is there a way we can choose which one we want? Thanks!

I have t-shirts older than you...

It's the weekend.I can wear t-shirts instead of the suit.So, I was browsing my pile wardrobe, when my eye fell upon my tee from the first Discworld Convention. 1996, a few weeks before #1 son was born.I dug deeper.One I bought at the first gig I went to with Kitewife, which makes it 22 years old.One I bought in Kenya, which makes it 24 years old.Good grief, I really do have clothes older than the vast majority of members here.They're all landmarks, though. Times and places that are important.It's weird - my t-shirts seem to be the only things I own that date me, that mark the passing of the years.I have books, lots of books, but most of them are still in print, in one form or another.I hunted around, and the only other things that I own which specifically pin down dates, anchor me in time, are my engagement ring (April 23rd, 1988) and my wedding ring (May 24th, 1990).What anchors you to certain dates? What anniversaries do you celebrate?What about your friends and families? What do they commemorate?What about the site? What anniversaries should we celebrate here? What is the exact start-date of the site? Are any of the Team approaching significant dates? I mean, look at them - there's not one of them over 21, surely?>Cue general philosophising on the nature of time and commemoration of its transit<

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.

Robot goes on an airplane!

Robot and I went flying the other day, so we took a picture together. Whenever I wear it out in public, I hope somebody will come up to me and say that they're a member, too. Hasn't happened yet. I look a tad bit tired(/retarded)...since i'd been flying all day. EDIT: Yeah, I look really retarded in that picture...but at least Robot looks groovy!

Exchange Tshirt for a larger size?

Hi friends....I love this site and do like to win, even if it's just a bunch of positive comments!  Recently I won a t-shirt and I didn't realize how small/close the sizes run.   (I believe I requested a women's large and in the comments I noted that I wanted the equivalent that would fit a women's chest 36-38".  I was disappointed that the Tshirt ran exactly 37" with no room to breath.  Unfortunately I didn't realize I was supposed to add a few inches for movement as none was built into the size.) My shirt has not been worn and it still has the manufacturer's paper tag attached.  Is it possible to return it to Instructables for a larger size? If so, then I'd like to request something that measures 42" from armpit to armpit - which would be great after shrinking!  (I realize the larger size may be considered too large for the female sizes available, and if so, the equivalent man's size would be appreciated over one that doesn't fit) If this isn't an option, perhaps future winners can be asked what size they want their shirt to run "from armpit to armpit".  Not only will this make more T-shirt winners be happy, but also, more Instructables advertising will be seen on the streets ;-D mega thanks!

Thank you all......I don't know whether to laugh or cry......

I am totally flabbergasted....beyond belief, honestly. I have never been a part of such a close-knit group of caring individuals in my life. UPS just arrived (I think it was UPS), and so when I answered the door, there was this package. Ellen is always getting packages so I handed it to her.......but she handed it back saying it was for me. I am so awestruck that you sent me this beautiful shirt, and with the signatures on the back too. Thank you all SO much.....I really don't know what else to say. Question: since some of the signatures are a little light, is there any way that is practical that I can preserve them so that future washings do not fade them right away?Thanks SO much again....!

Making something instead of buying is waste of time?

While searching the Internet for someone that has made their own Hot Press for making WPC (wood plastic composite) boards, I stumbled upon a Tshirt forum.  A man had posted a topic about how to make his own Tshirt heat press for making Tshirt designs.  The other forum members all decided it was a waste of time.  He should not bother trying because it's complicated.  In the end he would spend way more, and he could buy a used or cheap heat press locally. Is that not the ultimate irony?  People who post in a forum about making Tshirts tell another member that do-it-yourself is a bad idea.  Like buying a heat press to make your own Tshirts is a much better idea.  Do they all think they will be the one with that great design to put on a Tshirt and corner the elusive $100Billion Tshirt market?  Or do they just like to make their own Tshirts instead of buying one pre made.
