My kids & I finished our flower of life t-shirts! Mine & my daughter's are done with iron-on rhinestones, and my son's is done with nail heads. He didn't want his to be as sparkly.[emoji39]



The back of my shirt says "Coldplayer brobbins" and both of the kid's say "Next-Gen Coldplayer".

All ready for our Chicago shows in two weeks!!!! [emoji2]

Thanks! My kids helped a lot. With each shirt, we'd all take different sections and stick the stones upside down onto these clear transfer sheets with the design below the sheet for reference. Then when all the stones were on, I'd flip the whole thing onto the shirt, position it, and iron it all down to melt the backs of the stones on the shirt. It sounds complicated, but it was actually pretty easy once I got the hang of it. But you're right...it took lots of patience. I think we spent about three hours on each shirt, including the iron-on letters on the back. Here's a couple of the work-in-process pictures.

This is super cool. It's always great to have a mum who's a fan.

Even more impressed now! Just the Flower of Life design, alone, is hard to get right !

Just finished painting my new jacket for the NJ shows! It's a mix of the MX and AFHOD eras. I really like how it came out. Now I just got to sew on the patches.

that's so neatly crafted. I've seen a fair share of crappy fan made things, but this is really, really well made! :nod:

Thanks! Yeah, I've had people comment on the last jacket I made. What would be REALLY cool is the band or one of the roadies noticed, haha.
