I need help on how i should go about putting the stars logo on my vest. :) I tried painting it but it smeared and i washed it off cause it looked like crap. Any help would be appreciated.

You could try the same method I used for painting S.T.A.R.S. on the back of my Jill shirt.

First make a stencil. I printed out my logo on a piece of cardstock and then used one of those exacto-knives (the pen-like thing with a razor blade on the end of it) to cut out the letters. Then get some spray on fabric paint, like this: http://www.simplyspray.com/

Tape the stencil in the appropriate place and cover the rest of the vest so that you don't get the paint everywhere. If the sort of paint in the link doesn't want to stick (it should, though) try plain old white spray paint.

Since it's a vest, you won't have the bleeding through problem that I had to worry about. Here's a pic of the back of my shirt to see how it turned out: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v180/ToshiMustgrind/Anime%20Expo%202007/?action=view&current=P7020106.jpg
