Why, you ask. Well there has been a sorta punky theme running amuck over here.
It began with this piece of art that my whosband was commissioned to do for the band Guttermouth. If you don't know who Guttermouth is, really it's okay. But we have two good friends who have replaced original members of this band (one is also in my hubs band), and they are about to set off on their winter tour. They needed some new shirts made and asked hubs to do it. Thus this consumed about three evenings of his life. Great outcome though. I believe he negotiated payment at $1/shirt sold. No complaints here.
What do you think? Nice, right. Now imagine it on a T-shirt that some teens will be wearing.
Then, while he was doing that I worked on a little punky project of my own. A NOFX onesie for E.
This was made from a band shirt (much like the one hubs just designed, but simpler). It was a girls babydoll style tee. There was fading and stains. I was going to put it in a T-shirt quilt, but thought that E can wear it first, and then it can be re-purposed once more into the quilt of all my old band shirts.
WHAT I DID (sorry it was on a whim so no photos):
1.Got a onesie of E's and laid it on top of the shirt. Cut the body shape, remembering to make the back longer.
2.Then I used the arms as an arm template. I Cut the back neck off to lower it. It wasn't really going to work otherwise.
3.I also cut the original sleeve bands off to use on the bottom as a trim; the new sleeve were not long enough to retain the trimming, but why lose it completely.
4. I then started to sew in all the appropriate places. Adding the trim at the bottom as aforementioned.
5. I trimmed all of the excess inside.
6. I added snaps to the bottom, just like any onesie should have.
It came out sufficient enough. It's my first onesie creation, so it could be WAY worse. Anyway, it's punk rock after all, and being a little haphazard is a part of the punk rock charm.
Oh yes, one last punky moment for the week. See I told you it was a theme in our household. I purchased these wonderful little headbands. The pyramid stud style on them is oh so punk rock. I will be turning them into something punk rock chic very soon, maybe even tonight.
