Photos Of Lana Doing Her Non-PG Ring Entrance

8 Hours Ago. Sears' move is the clearest sign yet that the retailer may finally file for bankruptcy after years of losses. The filing reportedly could come this week.

The buttons with the sleeve cuffs are at the ankles and these are adorable In case you needed a use for the sleeves.. I have seen baby's pants made from sleeves of shirts. The cuffs are at the ankles ad the buttons run up the side of the pants. They are adorable, but I would think it would require reinforcing the buttons so they could notbe removed and some talent Hello, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your craft ideas and instructions. I have no idea who I making me for but I can't wait to try.

For those that dont sew, an 18 x 18 form takes a 17 x 17 square of fabric. What a wonderful Idea, this would be great way to have a keepsake of someone who is no longer with us as well.

Thank you so much for this.. I have a shirt that I made for my dad years before he passed away. He wore that shirt until it was thread bare even though I made him a complete replacement one, same color, same fabric, same size etc Mom would hide it in the back of the closet and he would go through the closet until he found it again. That shirt became a joke between us, and my dad has now been gone 22 years.

I miss him every day. My mom gave that shirt to me when my dad died, knowing the "love" that was in that shirt both by me making it for dad and dad wearing it until it was thread bare, so she wanted me to have it. I have an embroidery machine so I can even embroider a patch like the one on the western shirt shown! I can't wait to make it!! My father recently passed away. This is a great idea!

I will be making pillows for all my sisters and my mom with the flannel shirts that he wore often. I am going to use the rest of the fabric from the shirts to make a memorial quilt with pics of my dad and family on the small wall size quilt that my mom can put on her sofa.

Thanks for the wonderful idea and may God Bless! I'm sorry to hear of your loss. He was obviously very loved and I'm sure your mom will love it. Use the sleeves, cut into 4" or 5" squares and sew together in a patchwork quilt.

They really make cute quilts. I am honored you'd think of me but this is shared so that anyone can do it. I'm sure a local seamstress could whip up something amazing for you!

How did you do the lettering from Dad on your shirt? I too, have a stash of fav shirts. OMG This is so adorable! I think even I cud make this, yes ME!!! Me, myself, and I!! My husband works for a funeral home, this wud be great gifts for the families. Love, love, love this idea AND your instructions. I do have one question.

Did you do your own embroidery or did someone else do it. I have an old embroidery machine and have never tried something written this long. My brother in law just passed and I think his three girls would love one of these pillows. I loved your tutorial for we the sewing challenged and your sense of humor.

It's good for someone who passed away as well. I am going to do this for my grandmother who raised me who passed away last year with a shirt she wore all the time! This is so wonderful.

My grandpa passed away and I was given one of his shirts. I might do this for a college throw pillow, but I'm a little hesitant on cutting it. Looooove this tutorial and now on the hunt for one of my husband's shirt: My mom, "Mammaw", to the grandchildren and great-grandchildren, passed away this year. Great project for a final Christmas gift for them from her. I can see this being done with other clothing as well.

Thank you for the idea! I made 18 of these pillows from the shirts my hubby wore. I found it much easier to just buy your pillow forms, say 18" forms, using a measuring stick, simply measure 1 - 2" larger square on the shirt, mark and cut out.

Turn right sides together and sew. I have a serger so it was much easier than using a regular machine. But a regular machine is good too. Just be sure that if you are sewing the square with the wording on to sew that on before sewing pieces together. Needless to say my family was very happy with their pillows. My precious husband passed away the day after Thanksgiving last year and when I saw this post I just knew I had to do this for my family.

I made 18 of these pillows using all his shirts and used the top of the sleeves to make smaller ones for the Great Grandchildren. I found it easier to just use a measuring stick to measure on the shirts the size needed for the pillow forms.

Then I just cut them out and turned right sides together and sewed them on my serger. I had the patches with the wording made and sewed them on before sewing them together. My family had a wonderful Easter when I presented them all with their "Easter Baskets". Many tears of happiness were shed.

Thanks for the awesome idea. My daughter-in-laws dad just past away on the 3rd and would love to do this for my grandson from his pappa and his wife and my daughter-in-law also so they will always have it with them. Really love this idea, my mom just passed away going to make one for all her 10 kids, and grands and great grands.

I have several of his shirts. Some fit me, but the rest can now become memory pillows!!! They can sit on the couch or bed and remind me of him instead of hiding away unseen in the closet. Thank you for this great idea! Love the shirt idea wish I had seen this sooner. I had a pillow made from my deceased husband's ties but I needed something like you put on yours with the saying but using "ties" instead - how did you do it or how can I do it? Need some help please. My 22 year old son just left being deployed overseas in the military I as his mother am a wreck but I think I will use one of his shirts that I have put in my pillow case and make me a pillow out of it!

Its even smells like his Axe body spray I just couldnt bring my self to wash it and I am glad I didnt now. Thank you for sharing this idea. My 22 year old son was just deployed overseas and I am a wreck,proud but a wreck! Thank you for this idea I have not washed a tshirt because it smells like his body spray. I have been keeping it in my pillow but now I am going to make it a pillow.

Thanks again and keep our soldiers in our prayers home and abroad young and old.!!!!!! This is a precious idea. And a pillow made from Mom's or Grandmom's pretty blouse would be sweet! Just a safety reminder Wish I would have know about these 20 years ago when my dad passed away. These would have been a perfect treasure for all the grandchildren. This is a very cute idea for people to be able to hold something close to them if they no longer have them near,I'm gonna have to make me a couple or so.

Thanks for the Idea. Oh dear, the sewing machine over there hasn't been used in 3 years, I lost my Pirate a year ago WILL the cover come off???? Many different organizations have caught on to the statement-making trend, including chain and independent stores, websites, and schools. Paris Fashion Week featured a grunge style T-shirt. In the early s, several companies based in Miami, Florida , started to decorate T-shirts with different resort names and various characters.

Later, other companies expanded into the T-shirt printing business, including Sherry Manufacturing Company, also based in Miami. Sherry, was founded in by its owner and founder Quentin H. Sandler as a screen printer of Souvenir Scarf's to the souvenir resort market. Shortly, the company evolved into one of the largest screen printed resort and licensed apparel companies in the United States.

The company now runs automatic Screen Print presses and produces up to 10, to 20, T Shirts each day. In the s, the ringer T-shirt appeared and became a staple fashion for youth and rock-n-rollers. The decade also saw the emergence of tie-dyeing and screen-printing on the basic T-shirt and the T-shirt became a medium for wearable art, commercial advertising , souvenir messages, and protest art messages.

Psychedelic art poster designer Warren Dayton pioneered several political, protest, and pop-culture art printed large and in color on T-shirts featuring images of Cesar Chavez, political cartoons, and other cultural icons in an article in the Los Angeles Times magazine in late ironically, the clothing company quickly cancelled the experimental line, fearing there would not be a market.

Monster T-shirts often feature emblems and motifs associated with the Grateful Dead and marijuana culture. Today, many notable and memorable T-shirts produced in the s have become ensconced in pop culture.

In the mids, the white T-shirt became fashionable after the actor Don Johnson wore it with an Armani suit in Miami Vice. The most common form of commercial T-shirt decoration is screen-printing. In screen-printing, a design is separated into individual colors. Plastisol or water based inks are applied to the shirt through mesh screens which limits the areas where ink is deposited.

In most commercial T-shirt printing, the specific colors in the design are used. To achieve a wider color spectrum with a limited number of colors, process printing using only cyan, magenta, yellow and black ink or simulated process using only white, black, red, green, blue, and gold ink is effective. Process printing is best suited for light colored shirts.

In , the invention of plastisol provided an ink more durable and stretchable than water-based ink, allowing much more variety in T-shirt designs. Very few companies continue to use water-based inks on their shirts. The majority of companies that create shirts prefer plastisol due to the ability to print on varying colors without the need for color adjustment at the art level.

Specialty inks trend in and out of fashion and include shimmer , puff , discharge , and chino based [16] inks. A metallic foil can be heat pressed and stamped onto any plastisol ink. When combined with shimmer ink, metallics give a mirror like effect wherever the previously screened plastisol ink was applied.

Specialty inks are more expensive to purchase as well as screen and tend to appear on garments in boutiques. Other methods of decoration used on T-shirts include airbrush , applique , embroidery , impressing or embossing, and the ironing on of either flock lettering, heat transfers , or dye-sublimation transfers.

Laser printers are capable of printing on plain paper using a special toner containing sublimation dyes which can then be permanently heat-transferred to T-shirts. In the s, thermochromatic dyes were used to produce T-shirts that changed color when subjected to heat. The Global Hypercolour brand of these was a common sight on the streets of the UK for a few years, but has since mostly disappeared. These were also very popular in the United States among teenagers in the late s.

A downside of color-change garments is that the dyes can easily be damaged, especially by washing in warm water, or dye other clothes during washing. Tie dye originated in India, Japan, Jamaica, and Africa as early as the sixth century. It was not until the s that tie dye was introduced to America during the hippie movement. Another form of T-shirt decoration is heat transfer vinyls.

These allow people to make short runs of printed shirts using plotter cut vinyl that they can then heat press onto the garment. They are made in a multitude of colors, patterns, and styles. Also as home crafting kits are now available, social media has allowed the creation of bespoke designs including phrases and images. Dye-sublimation printing is a direct-to-garment digital printing technology using full color artwork to transfer images to polyester and polymer-coated substrate based T-shirts.

Dye-sublimation also commonly referred to as all-over printing came into widespread use in the 21st century, enabling some designs previously impossible. Printing with unlimited colors using large CMYK printers with special paper and ink is possible, unlike screen printing which requires screens for each color of the design. All-over print T-shirts have solved the problem with color fading and the vibrancy is higher than most standard printing methods, but requires synthetic fabrics for the ink to take hold.

The key feature of dye-sublimated clothing is that the design is not printed on top of the garment, but permanently dyed into the threads of the shirt, ensuring that it will never fade. Licensed T-shirts are also extremely popular. Movie and TV T-shirts can have images of the actors, logos, and funny quotations from the movie or TV show. Often, the most popular T-shirts are those that characters wore in the film itself e.

Designer Katharine Hamnett , in the early s, pioneered outsize T-shirts with large-print slogans. The trend has only increased later in this decade, embraced by celebrities, such as Britney Spears and Paris Hilton , and reflected back on them, too 'Team Aniston'.

The political and social statements that T-shirts often display have become, since the first decade of the 21st century, one of the reasons that they have so deeply permeated different levels of culture and society.

The statements also may be found to be offensive, shocking, or pornographic to some. Many different organizations have caught on to the statement-making trend, including chain and independent stores, websites, and schools.
