It is purple and lime green, the colors of Starknuts, a little Harry Potter /coffee /tea / knitting /crochet community I frequent. We are trying to make a bunch in the Starknuts colors to send to Ofenjen.

I entered two quilt blocks for Ofenjen's Batiks on Black contest. I used her slightly twisted pattern, which I really like. The fact that I finished is a minor miracle.
There are 30+ blocks in the drawing and they are all so cool!. Whoever wins gets the lot. Is that totally cool or what!

I really don't recommend using the t-shirt transfer paper, it is very fast, but it just won't last. I only used it cause I was in an uber hurry. You'll get a much better result if you cut a stencil out of freezer paper and use black fabric paint. The logo will have the CC floating in the middle of the black circle, so use care when cutting that part out. And the slogan will of course take forever.
I was thinking if you have a Slice or other cutting machine, you should be able to cut freezer paper with the slice and cut the letters as stencils? Or even just cut out the letters and stipple around them.
Hum,... Hobby Lobby has the Slice on sale,...
Well, maybe one sport,...
We drove to the Walmart, cause Michaels didn't have any sweatshirts, and bought two orange sweatshirts, on sale for $5 each, (Yeah!) and raced home. K designed the logo, which is not cannon, (get it cannon!) but I really like it. I used t-shirt transfer for light colors and saturated the black when I printed it. Halfway through I thought I had ruined the shirt, it turned deep burnt orange where I put the iron. But when it cooled, it went back to normal. Love the team slogan!
Unfortunately, just found out this morning that the main color for the other team in the big Alabama game today is,...Orange! She will undoubtedly be stoned to death upon arrival. Unless her librarian saves her.
