Hi Elliott,

thanks again for bringing Inkscape to my attention, I was able to vectorize my 
bitmap image and it came out flawless. It took me a while to figure out how to 
"invert" the solid and transparent areas. I was looking for something more 
complicated about tweaking the alpha colour, didn't notice the "invert" checkbox 
option Ha! =P

In no time I was downloading SVG images and create my own mashup. I am planning 
to make some custom tees, and being able to work with layers is just when I 
needed for screen printing.
