I Love to Create: DIY "Team Conan" T-Shirt!
Ever since I was a guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in 2005, I’ve had a bit of a soft spot in my heart for ol’ Coney. Ok, I wasn’t actually a guest, but I was still “on” his show. Ok, I wasn’t actually on his show, but a magazine that I happened to be on the cover of was briefly held by him during the broadcast of an episode. The details aren’t really important, are they?
The point is that I enjoy the Conan O’Brien; he’s smart, funny and truly entertaining. All of those are reasons enough to support Coco during the NBC Late Night Debacle of ’10 however, I also feel that as a fellow redhead who’s married to another redhead that our house can’t not take action while one of our people is being dissed with a capital “D”. Enter the D.I.Y. “Team Conan” T-shirt. Make yours up, and wear it proudly. It’s for the love of laughter, people. Laughter.
- Print out Conan Template (actual size can be find on Flickr here).
- Slide cardboard into shirt and tape so that the front of shirt is taut.
- Sandwich transfer paper face-down, between shirt front and template. Trace over template to transfer image to shirt.
- Use a black, Tulip Fabric Marker to draw over the transfered image.
- Fill-in lines with desired colors of Fabric Markers.
- Write “Team Conan” above the image.
- Wear loudly and proudly.
Team Conan all the way! He’s smart, he’s funny, he’s kooky and he’s a red head.
Great and timely project idea!
That is hi-larious.
loooooove it! save conan!
I am hunting for a t shirt right now. go Redheads! Thanks for giving us all a way to support the Conan dude!
That template is awesome! I should make one for Mark since he was a musical guest a couple of years ago.
You totally should! You can come over and borrow fabric markers, if you don’t have them already.
For those of you playing along at home, Gretchen’s hubby Mark is in one of my favorite bands to both write & craft by, Explosions in the Sky. Give ’em a listen, if you haven’t already! http://www.explosionsinthesky.com/
