Johnnymarie... I'd frame that and hang it on a wall. ::snaphappy::

I can't tell if I should be hungry horny or play hide and seek.

Here's a pic of some patches I made. I designed the image, burned it into a silk screen, then printed a bunch by hand. I still have a stack of them, maybe I'll list them on The Black Market.

Any tips on how to do this? I painstakingly preserve stencil designs specifically for the day when I can screen print my clothes. All the info I see however seems to be geared towards business who sell Shit to soccer moms.

There are some good instructions here that are pretty similar to what I did. The differences are that I had a pre-stretched screen and exposed the image using two fluorescent work-lights instead of the sun.

I used a kit that I found at a thrift store that included a screen, the ink, and all the chemicals. You can find the same kit on Amazon but it's going to be way cheaper to buy the emulsion separately and make your own screen out of curtain gauze and a picture frame (I haven't done that yet but I hear it works pretty well).

The printing process isn't too hard but it takes a lot of trial and error. I printed those patches just by setting the screen on the fabric and holding it still with one hand while pulling the squeegee with the other but I've since built a press out of scrap plywood and hinge clamps that makes it much easier. Hope this helps!

I want the black one. I've been doing diy patches but none as detailed as this since I use butcher paper and an exacto knife. Let me know if you ever want to trade stuffs.

Resurrecting this thread to show off my new sweatshirt. I've needed a new one for a while and I groundscored one today but it had the logo of some fraternity on the front and back. Took care of that with a back patch from a T shirt from a free bin and some scrap fabric. Looks kind of janky but at least I'm not advertising for some frat. :)

The pants are my husbands but I made the patches and did the lining in his jacket.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $90.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $90.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
