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.

I traced on the backside of the tracing paper with a silver quilting pencil.

Irina The Cat Shirt

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.

The Death Valley Ghost House Shirt

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.

The Joshua Tree Shirt And Wavy Long Hair

I wore the Joshua Tree shirt I created with a black pencil skirt and pattern tights. My hair was long and wavy at night from having worn it in a braid all day.

The Joshua Tree shirt has a reprint of my original photograph from a trip I took to this park.

Wearing Official Vacuum County Slogan T-shirt On A Forest Walk

Today I wore the official Vacuum County slogan t-shirt on a forest walk. It is comfortable to wear in the unseasonably warm weather we are still having here in the local mountains.
