    Zastava_M57 T-Shirt

    To celebrate the new addition to my collection of a Yugoslavian Zastava M57 AND because I am stuck in the house (thank you Covid-19).

    I opened up the Inkscape program on my PC and created the Zastava logo found on some of the Zastava grips. (Also made the Star Logo but have not used it) Then I found a Yugoslavian converted and edited it to .SVG and created this T-Shirt to wear on my New Zastava M57 first range visit.

    Odd things you do when one is board...

    That is nice. How do you make your own T-shirt?

    My wife is one of those crafty people. I love guns, she like crafts and custom cake baking. Anyhow, one of the machines she owns is called a Cricut Maker that is a hobby priced computer-controlled cutter, embosser, engraver, and drawing machine. So to make shirts I design the graphics in a free (well, open-source) application called Inkscape then once complete I save it as a .SVG file and then open it with the Cricut Designer application that comes with the machine. Load the Iron-On material onto the cutting board, load it in the machine and cut the design.

    Once its cut I peal off the section of the material I don't need then iron the graphic on to the shirt, Or in this case, I used my wife's transfer heater. That's pretty much it, sounds harder then it is. You can use any graphics like JPG's and use them as-is, you don't need to draw anything, the machine has built-in graphics and fonts as well. The crest was a JPG that I just upload to the Cricut software.

    Make the vinyl stickers is done the same way. Pictures below.




    Here is the Iron-On material process:

    If you want one I can make it for you. You just need to pay for the materials and shipping. You can even send me what you want it graphics put on if you like. Material wise, depending on the type and color would run 4.00 to 8.00 for the Iron-On and cotton T-shirts from Walmart are like 5.00 or 6.00, more for better ones. No clue what shipping would be. PM me if you want me to make one for you.

    You can see the types of Iron-On materials and colors here --> https://cricut.com/en_us/cutting-materials/iron-on-vinyl.html

    My wife also does the Cricut crafting as a hobby. She has the t-shirt/baseball cap machine. Is there a way to send me the file so she can load it in her machine and make the transfer for the shirt?
