Queen Shirt

Mica's obsessed with the band Queen. I'm not sure how he became obsessed with the bad. I like Queen, but it's never been a band I listen to over and over again.

Kids in his grade make fun of him because he likes old bands.

I decided to make Mica a Queen shirt. 

Picking out colors can be hard, or easy. The shirt was grey, so I decided Freddy Mercury's face would be purple. I chose black for the text.

I went with an iron on vinyl. I don't find vinyl to always be super permanent. I've had some edges come up in the past. If that happens I just re iron it down. Kid's obsessions change. I didn't want to spend a lot on a t-shirt.

I cut out Mercury's face.

It was simple I just ironed it on.

Then I found one of Mica's favorite lyrics, typed it on my computer, put the t-shirt over the screen of my laptop, and used the laptop as a light box to fabric paint in the words.

It's not perfect, but Mica loved it!

If you could choose any band to have on a t-shirt what band would it be?

It turned out great! I love to personalize clothes with vinyl too. I don't usually put bands on mine, but when I was Mica's age, I probably would have wanted Bon Jovi or even Def Leopard on mine.

Such a great gift and looks easy to make? Hmmm I'm really into Eminem when I work out... so maybe him? hehe

I love that you did for this him! I'm not a huge Queen person either. I'd probably choose Prince maybe for mine.

That's a fun shirt. I guess I'd choose the Glenn Miller Band. Reminds me of my gram. :)
