Pittsburgh Mash-Up

little project, and, probably my 4th or 5th DIY ever that i did for Uni Watch. the trend was creating a "sports/city mash-up". lot's of people were mashing together the actual logos, like the Baltimore orioles bird with a ravens helmet. i took a different route. i based mine of the Pittsburgh city flag:

4 things to note: the castle, the lite-blue checkerboard pattern, the 3 coins, and the crest shield

so i took Pittsburgh's beloved sports teams logos and messed around with some ideas:

after a little work, i finally came up with this logo:

added some color:

then got to work:

here are some pics of the detail:

VERY long process, everything is glued, felt, and now the logo is framed in my dining room. completely happy with the result though!

T-shirt Stencils

spotted a technique yesterday over at Uni Watch (here is the actual post), where you basically use freezer paper, screen print paint, and basic tools to make your own t-shirt stencils. have a look at the step-by-step instructions!

First off, it's Brian Pettit's Barrell Man:

looks amazing! here's how he did it, pulled from Celtic Mommy:

also got some tips from a page i should really get to more, Instructables

now i'm deciding on what logo to stencil!

i'm thinking something having to do with this:

what do you think? either way, should be a cool project! and always, thank you to Uni Watch and it's awesome readers/contributors for the ideas and the "how to"! stay tuned for updates...

call it the Invaders Alt.... call it the Invaders Home White... call it the Invaders 2nd... i call it, a finished product!

looks good side-by-side! since i'm a "white at home, color on the road" hockey traditionalist, i'd say:

Roadie on left. Homer on right

and here i am wearing after it's debut:

2 goal effort (in a pick-up game... blahhh), and LOT'S of positive feedback on the jersey/uni!

to start from the beginning:
