Spiffy music needs spiffy shirts
if you're like me, all the bands you like are underground and no one knows who the heck they are. obviously this means you cant buy their merch. why you ask? cuz they don't have any...

so here's how to make your own shirt for your fave band(s)!

that's really cool! even if it wasn't an album cover it'd still be a really neat image. what brand of fabric paint did you use and did you use a textile medium or anything? i've tried to paint shirts before but they crust/flake (that sounds really gross, but yeah) after washing.
