Do you enjoy having fun with your t-shirts? Were you one of the first ones to own an “I’m With Stupid” shirt? Do you like to choose t-shirts with funny images and sayings? If so, you’ll have a blast making a morse code t-shirt. You don’t actually have to understand morse code yourself; you can go online and get some help turning whatever you want to say into a morse code phrase. It’s a unique way to have fun with your garments!
There is more than one way to make the shirt you want. You can use paint pens, tube paints – even nail polish – to make the dots and dashes. Regular magic markers will wash away when you launder the shirt; nail polish will fade after a period of time. Tube paints, or paints that dispense from a small squeeze bottle, or the paint markers, are the best choices. You’ll find either of those at any craft store.
Write anything you want as the phrase on your shirt. Write “If you can read this you’re a dot, dot, dash”, “I’m with stupid”, or any other phrase. Use your own sense of humor to create a unique phrase or borrow a phrase from a shirt you’ve seen before. After you’ve decided on what you want your shirt to say you can simply type it into a morse code translator online.
After typing in the words or phrase you’ll see that the translator will show you how to arrange dots and dashes to spell it out on your shirt. Now use your chosen paint or marker to copy the dots and dashes onto the shirt. Make sure you are able to fit everything on the shirt.
Of course, you’ll know what your shirt says but very few other people will. You’ll get some funny looks as people glimpse your shirt and wonder what it’s all about. Sure, there are some people who can read morse code, and these people can read your shirt, but others will just look puzzled. If the words or phrases are simplistic some people might even rush home to their computers and check the morse code translator to see what you’re trying to say!
If you’re a fun-loving person, and you enjoy unique t-shirts, you’ll giggle because you secretly know what your shirt says while no one else does. It’s a fun garment craft that anyone can easily make!
