Nice job. You are a temptress in showing off all that great coversitching.

Great work, and more than one feather for the Cool Mom cap. I recently did an opaque transfer on a black tee as a test for fundraising tees for DD's school. I am not going to sew the tees, we will use blanks. But the transfer process is REALLY GREAT. For the girl version you can add heat transfer jewels too with one of those wands. I just used a hot glue gun, but I'm going to get one of those magic thingies (technical term). Be sure to post your other versons!

Gosh, Debbie, Great shirts & great review! I'll have to look into the transfer paper -- 6 of my DGKs are between 16 & 9. Now about cover stitching -- I'm still lurking & thinking. Just bought a brand new Toyota Highlander! I think I have to lay low for awhile. (8^D)

Great review Debbie as usual. It's wonderful to see a review for teenage boys for a change. I also loved seeing the different fit on the two boys side by side. Great job!

Wow, these shirts look great, and now I want to play with some of that transfer paper, too. I'll be waiting for the post-washing report. PS - good-looking models you've got there.

Great job! I really like that double-sided fabric of the 1st tee; neat. I think I picked up some transfer paper; I'll have to see where I stored it. Now, stop talking about your coverstitch machine! ;o

Well, that is just too cool, Debbie! I don't believe I'll be showing this to my three DS's. I'll have requests galore. And I'm with Anne, stop talking about and showing us pics of your coverstitch work. I don't need one, I don't need one............;)

Thanks for a highly informative and entertaining review Debbie! I have been thinking of making Dear Husband some Tees to use up the not feminine coloured fabrics left from my Wazoodle grab bags and now I know which pattern to use. Thanks, your shirts look great! Thanks also for the tips about the T shirt transfer paper, a great idea!

Goodie goodie... this T-shirt looks much more like the standard no-frills T-shirt for men. Your tees make me jealous. :P

Great review! This patterns is in my wish list! - and I have to get some of that transfer paper. Tell your boys they look great - if I were 10 - well more like 13 years younger, your older son would definately be someone I would look at :-) (Don't tell DH2B)

I think these are great. I think we actually have some of that paper around the apt. and will get to hunting for some images I can put on my next t- shirt. I just got a serger too so I'm looking forward to making one of these! You and your sons made great co-creators on this project. You get the way cool mom award!

Wow, they sure look great. And thanks for the transfer info -- I think I'll have to make some of these for DH, who thinks he is still a teenager (he opened for RHCP on the Lollapalooza '92 tour with a band called 'Sharkbait').

Love these, Debbie!! Thanks for the tip on the Office Depot paper~ now I know how I will get the Oakland raiders onto the shirt for DH you inspired me to make from your recent(?) Redskins lounging outfit review! I hope they still make it! :o)
