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.
The video illustrates how the shirt looks on a person in motion. If you do not want to make your own fabric marker design on a shirt, I have created a shirt with the illustration of Irina sitting on the grass over on Zazzle.
This shirt is perfect for October and Halloween because of the orange background, which was created with an orange crayon and an orange oil pastel. The cursive text was created with a number two pencil. The shirt is available over on Zazzle.
On my birthday I wore the zebra shirt again with my long hair down. The zebra shirt can be worn with any style, but it is intriguing how my long dark hair blends in with the black of the shirt. This allows the zebra artwork I created to pop out.
In the video I am modeling the zebra shirt with my long flowing hair.
