Shirt Prototype

Take Flight (t-shirt prototype)

I've been having fun playing around with shirt designs lately. My family and I have been experimenting with different textile paints, stencils, silk screens, gocco, and even the sewing machine. I'd like to someday sell shirts on the website a la Panic, but with a distinctly handmade/ artisan perspective.

The above shirt (prototype) was inspired by the trend of recycling older materials into new items. For example, Re-Sails bags (made for sail cloth) and these Rice & Feed Laundry Bags. We also recently bought some hand printed shirts for the kids from Potato Playground which I totally dig and have been inspired by.

To print this shirt, I cut a large version of the new logo from freezer paper used an x-acto knife to make a stencil. Then I ironed the freezer paper stencil to the shirt and masked it to the seams of the shirt. Finally, I printed the ink using a sea sponge to give it an organic and worn looking texture.

By the way, the shirt is from Edun Live. Check out their intro video.

Let me know what you think!

I like the way that the logo kind of overflows off the t-shirt rather than being right in the middle - neat!

The t-shirt looks great but these sales are dependent on the continuing evolution of the software. Marketing is interesting stuff but it would be beneficial to hear more about software enhancement plans. I am excited by this start in this new software category but I am hoping that new features are being planned. 3D conversion to video could also be made more robust. Any plans to provide more flexibility on backgrounds?
