* emo shirt

Posted on February 22nd, 2007 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

Whoa, long time no post. I’ve been working, I guess. And my internet time has lately been spent fangirling Panic! at the Disco sites (no I’m not kidding). For example, watching this video on YouTube and noticing Pete Wentz in the background singing along. His hoodie says “love can’t save you” and I decided I needed a shirt that says this. Googling for it, I found out that it is actually a quote from Star Wars episode 3, the rest of which–“only my new powers can”–is on the back. And that originals are now $300 on eBay. So, I made my own with fuzzy iron-on letters (and nothing on the back). Haha, I love it way more than I should.

    Love the iron letters — I once made my husband a T shirt of an entire iron on alphabet sheet.
