Today I want to share how I made a cat shirt with fabric markers. First, I took a plain yellow shirt and drew a picture of a cat on it. Actually, I transferred the cat illustration on the shirt with tracing paper, but tracing paper could also be used to create an outline of a photograph on a shirt. First, you might want to see how used tracing paper trace around the image of my cat drawing.
The next step was to take a quilting pencil and trace on the backside of the tracing paper.
The video below illustrates what the Irina the cat shirt looks like. This shirt was created with fabric markers, and my own drawing.
The Irina cat shirt has a reprint to my oil painting of Irina the cat coming out of the woods.
I love pairing the Irina the cat shirt with the cute black skirt I picked up over on Amazon. This black skirt is simple, and it compliments the teal blue of my shirt. The teal blue of the shirt also goes well with the shades in the Irina the cat painting. The Irina the cat shirt is available over on Zazzle.
I have designed two different Stripey cat at Joshua Tree shirts to suit different tastes. The first shirt is an all over print shirt that comes in men’s sizing, but I happen to enjoy how these shirts fit.
Last December I drew a little colored pencil drawing of a ghost house in Death Valley, inspired by a photograph I took of a ghost town we used to camp nearby. I decided to repost this shirt with the design because it is very quintessential of California camping trips. Our family always used to go camping in the desert, and I like to create artwork reminiscent of these travels.
