Merry Christmas T-Shirt Word Art

My newest best toy.  Tagul!  You can make word art/subway art whatever you call it and you can spend a lot of time learning just how to
get it right.  I found it because there was a video done by some lovely ladies from Wales who took it upon themselves to show you how.  I was there pretty quickly after seeing the video.  Tagul is a FREE cloud app so still in "progress" and the designer is still updating and adding features.  Be patient as I think he will really have a nice one one day.

Here's the link to the video from Useful Graphic Design Tutorials to get you started.

Once I got the design I liked I decided MDH and I need shirts to wear on Christmas so here's where I'm going with it.  I ordered 3 Hanes Beefy-T's and will hopefully be done by Christmas….post office willing.

I will warn you that Tagul uses up a lot of memory to do this and the more words and fonts you use slows down a bit.  So start with a clean start up and only have tagul open.

I was able to save as a .png and as .svg but Inkscape nearly choked with my trying to edit to make a cutting mat (that was back when I thought I'd do a p2c and wanted the mat bell)  I ended up just opening the bell in eCAL and placing the text image on the same page and resizing…now I do have a p2c.

I'm uploading the png file for you but after that you'll have to DIY : )
