Scarves! I took a hiatus for a while, so I'm not sure if this has been done before, but dang I love scarfs and there have been some lovely patterns subbed that I would wear in a heart beat.

Or maybe an "Internet Meme" challenge, which could be fun but would open the flood gates for terrible things. Actually, nevermind.

Something else I've wanted Threadless to print on before....

Create a design for stockings/leggings! For the ladies.

This is becoming more of a personal wish list.

READING! Thats a great idea!

Leggings! But not just for ladies, hose for men too, this could be the renaissance for male leggings, a la Robin hood.

Create a design for Necktie or Bowtie: Some of us actually have corporate cube jobs and actually have to dress up for work from time to time. How about a tie that that shows off creativity while still keeping it classy San Diego.

Some snazzy mantights should help with that.

Threadless Beach Towel!

Create a design that you want to wrap around you as you step out of the pool or sauna. Just imagine your body against that lovely design as you cozy up on the sandy shores of the local beach, lake, pool, reservoir, or puddle left by the drizzling rain. Don't have the perfect weather? Just use it as a bath towel. Dampen a corner, twist it up, and it can also double as a whip. Enjoy!

Threadless loves TEOTWAWKI (the end of the world as we know it):

In Dec 21st, 2012 the world might come to an end, and before it does, your challenge is to design the most apocalyptic tee ever. Whether it's death & destruction or a new golden age we want you to create something the mayans, aliens and survivors would be proud to wear. So, what is your design legacy to a world that is about to go poof?

^The skies the limit^ Leggings are so diverse, gas stations, muggings, hijackings, freedom of movement, comfort and snazziness.

Create a design about Beards: A bunch of guys from my church and I have formed The League of Beerds to celebrate beardyness and beer(We started clean shaven on Nov. 1 and we're not shaving till Feb 28 AND we're doing several home brews as a group). Mustaches are cool and all but the beard needs some love. Here's the logo I designed for the group for inspiration.

Wasn't there a way to see all of the previous challenges on the old site? I don't see that available anymore, I could be wrong.

How about "Threadless Loves B-Movie Posters". Create movies posters for fictional movies that could be printed as wall art and t-shirts. Imagine the video promo fun you could have for that challenge! :)

Shroooom

Create a tee design inspired by your favourite artistic movement Impressionism, cubism, futurism, realism, symbolism, etc etc (you get the picture). The subject matter could be anything you wanted, as long as you did it in the artistic style. For example, if I wanted to do a tshirt based on Alice in Wonderland, and I chose cubism, it would have to be drawn cubist style.

Create a design for a vinyl toy! Think you can design something that people will want to collect obsessively? Create a design for a toy that will line shelves and desks everywhere!

Maybe use a bird or an astronaut or something as a base. WOULD BE AWESOME.

Create a design for zubaz. Image yourself as an artist whose canvas is strung up on a powerful set of legs, your art billowing in the wind at a tailgate party or soaking up sweat whilst hardcore lifting is being done at the gym. Design something that says, "I am a true man, don't fuck with me".
