Maurice Moss

It was my husband's birthday recently.

Every year for my husband's birthday I make him a gag tee shirt.
Previous years:
This year was a tribute to his favorite sitcom:
IT Crowd.
It's a British series about nerds we've been watching on Netflix and our favorite character is Maurice Moss:

To make the t-shirt, I first got an image of Moss from google.  In Microsoft Word I posterized it with the basic image tools to make it black and white with high contrast.
Next I printed the image on freezer paper, cut out all the black portions, ironed it on a basic tee, then painted the holes with black fabric paint.
I'm still using freezer paper for my stencils, but if you have a Silhouette or something, it would be even easier.

Happy Birthday!

Great t-shirt! I love it - I knew that face!!!
I haven't tried this - what a fab idea X

love it! this might be a good concept to use the next time I make my husband a lunch bag. It's certainly less laborious than the embroidering I usually do on them. It takes forever to embroider when you do it about once every 6 months. lol.
we have watched some of the It Crowd on netflix too, and enjoyed seeing one of the guys make it into Bridesmaids. My husband could totally rock a spreadsheet lover shirt. I don't understand....but he just loves his spreadsheets.

He is my favorite character too. My anniversary is coming up so don't get mad if you see my husband walking around with the 'stolen idea' t-shirt! :)
