Make your own t-shirt

Sick of shirts with American Flags on them? Think the make-your-own patriotic shirts are restricted to puffy paints and rhinestones? Think again. American artists have been creating iconic, aesthetically stunning images throughout our history, readily available online. Simply buy some <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Iron-Transfers-White-Light-Fabrics/dp/B001HA29Z6" target="blank">iron-on transfer paper</a> and apply the image yourself, or take a file of the image to your local print shop. Just remember, don't plan on selling any of your creations unless the copyright has expired, as that could constitute infringement.
