Irina The Cat And The San Bernardino Mountains Shirt

This shirt expresses my love for cats and my connection to the San Bernardino Mountains. This shirt has a reprint of an oil painting I created of Irina the cat with the San Bernardino Mountains in the distance. There are large boulders next to Irina the cat, which is a quintessential Southern California scene for those of us who go on hiking jaunts.

If you read the earlier post, then you will see how I created the Irina the cat sitting on grass shirt with fabric markers. I have taken a picture of that image and created a similar shirt over on Zazzle. So if you loved this yellow Irina the cat shirt I was wearing the other day, then hop on over to Zazzle and purchase one of your own.

Make A Cat Shirt With Fabric Markers

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.

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.
