dangerous ideas

Have you all checked out zazzle yet? It’s a site that lets you “design” your own T-shirts and other goodies. It’s actually a bit friendlier to use than CafePress, because zazzle lets you manipulate images and text more easily. Anyway, I made a little supereggplant design, and though I wasn’t all that satisfied with it or the selection of shirt types, I impulsively ordered one, just because I could.

It came lickety split. You can’t really tell, but that is a lime-colored shirt. It is an oddly shaped shirt. It is skinny (baby doll style), but it is LONG. The thing is like a tube. Here’s hoping it shrinks to a reasonable length!

    fun shirt, i like how the eggplant looks like it has a bit of an attitude thing going on. good to know about the shirt, with my short body it wouldn’t look good at all.

    It looks like that’s an American Apparel brand t-shirt they used. They are quite long, but I think that’s to facilitate use wtih super-low-cut jeans. I own several American Apparel shirts and they don’t shrink at all in my experience.

    super cute! and with your super sewing skillz, you can hem it, trim it up with some cute ribbon, and make it truly eggplant-original!

    Please let me know how well you think it will hold up in the wash. Sometimes the iron on/heat transfer stuff (I don’t know if your shirt is heat transfer) doesn’t hold up so well.
    Another super-fun t-shirt place in SF http://www.bang-on.com/ Not exactly make your own design, but you do get to choose which one you want to pair with a specific shirt.

    My husband used zazzle to create two shirts for me and they were great. I think the tshirt brand was ‘bella’? I thought they fit quite well. Held up nicely in the wash too. (inside out wash of course. ;)

    Eggplant with attitude. Nice.

    if you search zazzle.com for super eggplant, you get the one and only mariko shirt! I do like that eggplant.

    Ah – I was guessing that they were Bella shirts – I *love* bella shirts – I have about a dozen plain ones [long story – but you can get them for cheap when you order bulk]. Awesome eggplant – so cute!
