“I Survived An Indiana Earthquake” T-shirt

December 31, 2010

On December 30, 2010, Central Indiana felt an earthquake that registered 3.8 on the Richter scale.  I posted on Facebook “Be sure to get your ‘I Survived An Indiana Earthquake’ t-shirts while they last.”  I got a lot of comments on it, so that evening I decided to actually make this t-shirt.  This t-shirt however was one of my biggest blunders.  Not only did the t-shirt not turn out like I thought it would but I got the Richter scale wrong.  On the day of the quake, the news reported 4.2.  My brother even warned me to check the news to get an update, but I told him to shove it.  I went with 4.2 and it turned out to be a 3.8.  Sigh.  Anyway, here is the creation.  It simply a red, long-sleeved t-shirt, with some writing from a black sharpie and a Clorox bleach pen.  I let the bleach pen soak for about three minutes and I should have let it soak for probably 15 minutes.  It just didn’t fade like I wanted it to.
