  1. Pick two white, long- or short-sleeved t-shirts or sweatshirts. Place a wooden board or t-shirt form inside the shirts. Tape the sleeves back and tape the neck and bottom down to keep the fabric from moving.
    Step 0 Example
  2. "Meowy Christmas" cat shirt: Print out the patterns for the image: Cat 1 pattern, cat 2 pattern, cat 3 pattern, and cat 4 pattern. Fit together and use tracing and transfer paper and a light color pencil to trace and transfer. (Or draw on.) Plan the placement of the stencils and trace inside the letters so you know where to lay the stencil again when it is time to paint.
    Step 1 Example
  3. With a small flat brush and using a pouncing motion, paint the stenciled words and all other green areas with Christmas Green. (We used the Sophisticated Stencils on a Ring for the lettering.)
