Hey all, A few months ago, I posted a topic on ideas for customizing jeans. Tonight, I came up with an idea that I'm really going to try this weekend. I'm going to visit some thrift shops and find plain vintage T's and zip-up sweatshirts that are soft and in good condition. I'll also pick up some shirts with cool funky logos/lettering, as well as some dress shirts with nice patterns. Here's my plan: - Cut out the logos from the t-shirts and sew them onto the front of a plain t-shirt of a contrasting color. I think this would make a cool effect. - Cut out smaller logos from shirts and sew them on the sleeves of the blank T-shirts. - Cut out words/parts of words to make up brief 'phrases' and sew them on the front of the blank t's, along with logos. - Cut a word/graphic from a shirt in half, and sew half on each side of a blank zip-up sweatshirt. Anybody have any other cool suggestions I could try? Also, anyone know of a more consistant source for nice blank fitted T's or hoodies? I tried the American Apparel website, but they want $46 for a hoodie and $16 for a t-shirt - a little steep for me to start out. However, their products look nice.
