Assembling the supplies:Here I have a template for the logo, double-sided fusible webbing, blue t-shirts in appropriate sizes, and an old white maternity shirt that will be chopped up for the lettering/numbering. Not shown are the iron, the exacto knife and scissors, the ironing board, and my self-healing cutting mat. Also not shown is my dogged determination to finish this project before 1pm EST on Sunday.
Jerry got a hold of the camera:Here you can see the chaos that is my sewing table (and my large ass). Since I've been knitting much more than sewing, things at the sewing table have been piling up. I can't wait to build my new sewing table, move it into my new bedroom, build an extraordinarily organized shelving unit and paint these goddamn walls a different color than their current shade of puke. All before new baby arrives.
Half-way there:Amazing what sunshine can do for a photo. So I've fused the logo onto the front with my double-y fusible webbing crap. That stuff is amazing. And I did a little applique stitching around the "y." I really like how it looks without the stitching, but it would likely become very ragged after washing if I didn't do it. So I did the stitching.
The front:Here's the front finished. A very proud Giants fan displays his new shirt. And notice in the background UNC (#25) is playing NC State (#12) and going on to beat them. Remember how nobody ranked UNC at the beginning of the season? TAKE THAT. Anyway, have I mentioned that I made three of these t-shirts! Yes, three! But wait, there's more...
...the back!Jerry is #80, Jeremy Shockey - tight end (has a tattoo of a bald eagle/flag on his arm). I am #10, Eli Manning - the QB (he's like 21 years old!). Gerald is #92, Michael Strahan - defensive end (and nfl record holder for most sacks in a season). I haven't done the stitching on the other two shirts yet. It can wait.
In conclusion: GO GIANTS!
