La La La Tshirt Tshirt

In celebration of Peggy getting her fellowship, I ordered a t-shirt from Mike’s bike company, FBM. It is red, with a Sriracha hot sauce rooster on it. The only size left was a medium, but I figured I would get it anyway because a) I liked it the best; b) it was only 9 bucks;  c) I wanted to support my friends! and d) I could cut it.

It is important to know: I have never been able to successfully cut a t-shirt so it looks cool. It always looks like a fourth grader did it. Actually, a fourth grader could probably cut it better. But that was pre-Internet. Now, I figured there should be like fifteen thousand different blogs with directions on how I could cut a t-shirt and have it look pretty good. So, I found this blog with a video and followed the directions. Voila:

It is a good thing I found this website, which also mentions this book (which I totally want!), which I can see coming in handy for fashioning the Apocalyptic style. T-shirts, made of cotton, will be plentiful, mostly the ones that end up in the thrift store, or overpressings of t-shirts nobody wanted, or ones that couldn’t be sold because they said something like “Philadelphia Phillies, 2009 and 2010 back-to-back World Series Champs!” (which, if one of those exists, please send one to me!). Re-purposing them will be key, not just for fashion sake, but I would say that those of us who can develop this skill might also be on to a little cottage industry. Well, maybe we don’t need to wait for the Apocalypse for that to happen…
