Leaf mania!

My obsession with leaf shapes clearly continues. And now it has spread to my clothes! I cut some stamps and then I went crazy on a plain tee. Ok, maybe not so crazy, but you know. I really like how it turned out, so I think I might do something similar on a couple more plain tees.

I also made a new Dalek tee for Tony. I guess that's a fitting way to, er, celebrate the finale of the latest series of Doctor Who.

And now you must pardon me, it's almost time for bed, because we're getting up REALLY early tomorrow. ;-)

Edit: Since a couple of you are asking what ink I use, I thought I better answer it here. I use the VersaCraft ink pads for fabric. Although some of the pads actually say Fabrico on them but look exactly like the other ones; could be a new name for the same thing. These are small square ink pads, not sure if they come in a larger size as well. Stamp on your fabric, let it dry, then set it with an iron. It works really well, I've made a few t-shirts this way and the ink seems to last pretty good. Hope this helps! :-)

Runaway penguin tee

Of course, I forgot to take pictures of this before it flew out of my hands. Typical. Good job my mum is handy with a camera then! I made this t-shirt for my sister for Christmas. She liked it. Yay! What you probably can't tell is that the single penguin on the front is saying 'hej' which means 'hi'.

Robots on tees

I was looking through some files on the computer last night and stumbled upon these robot guys and thought they would be fun on a t-shirt. So I went straight over to Spreadshirt and made a kids tee with all three of them. Isn't it cute? Wouldn't it be the perfect present for the little guys (and gals!) in your life?!
Of course, why do the kids get all the fun tees? So I made one for the bigger guys (and gals!) as well. But only with one of the robots. And now I'm thinking it might be fun to make more drawings and put them on tees as well. Stuff to think about...

I should be at work

But I'm not. I'm at home, feeling not so glamorous; I think I got a bit of what kept Tony home on Monday + a headache to boot. Fun. Well, to take my mind of that, I started a sewing project earlier and then I had the idea for these two t-shirt designs, which of course I HAD TO make, right?!

The top one is with breast cancer awareness in mind: if you buy one, 60% of the commission I get from it, will be donated to a charity working with breast cancer. I've not decided which one yet. Maybe a Danish one, maybe an English one. If you buy more than one, I will add another 1% to the donation, so really, the more you buy the bigger percentage gets donated! Buy the pink tee here.

The bottom is an autumn one, leaves in autumn colours. Just a wee simple design. I like simple. And colours, heh. During October I'll donate 15% of the commission from this tee, as well. So there's more than enough reasons for you to go get some kit! Buy the autumn tee here.
