Silver Snowflake Celtic Knotwork T-Shirt

Silver Snowflake Celtic Knotwork Unisex T-Shirt

During the holidays last year, I was looking through some of my old Celtic knotwork designs.  I came upon the original pencil sketch of my 1992 Snowflake design and, decided to print it in silver on some really nice black 100% cotton heavyweight T-shirts to give as gifts to family and friends.  They came out great and, were a big hit.

Special thanks to my good friend and wonderful, highly photogenic model, Tanya, for showing off the women’s fitted shirt for the photo!

Of course, I printed more than I needed and, have some extra shirts, both in a standard unisex T and, a fitted women’s T.  So, those are up in the online shop, if you want to grab one.  There are limited quantities on-hand but, I can easily print more, if there is enough demand.

No-Sew Felt Tray

Laser-Cut No-Sew Felt Tray

I wanted to make something to contain my work hold-down pins for the laser cutter. I had seen some simple felt trays that were formed from squares with the corners pinched and sewn together. It seemed like a no-sew technique might work well for that and, it did!

For assembly, I push a pair of small 5″ needle-nose pliers through the slit and, pull the mushroom-shaped tabs through.  If you want more guidance, I made a quick video showing production and assembly.

Update: I made another felt tray in “peacock” blue.  The edges did not char evenly, which looked a little odd.  Light application of a fine sanding sponge removed most of the edge char.
