Fence Cats Halloween Shirt
If your cutie is yearning for this adorable shirt, you can make it for her, or make it together! The fence borders the entire hem, front and back with one cat perched on the back hip. Because the cat and fence stencil are separate, you can put cats anywhere you want. The witch stencil is also separate from the moon. I added a tiny amount of bling to this shirt by attaching yellow rhinestones for the cats’ eyes. While I used an airbrush to apply the paint you can do it with with fabric paint and brush or sponge.
BEFORE PAINTING, ALWAYS WASH AND DRY FABRIC (WITHOUT FABRIC SOFTENER). DURING PAINTING, COVER EXPOSED FABRIC TO PREVENT ACCIDENTAL OVER SPRAY. ALLOW PAINT TO DRY BETWEEN STEPS.
step 1 - Match up the shirt’s side seams and shoulders and pin them together. This will help you find the accurate center front of the shirt. Iron a soft crease in the shirt from the neckline to the hem to mark the center. Slip cardboard between the shirt front and back to avoid transfer of paint between the layers.
step 2 - Spray the back of the moon stencil with adhesive stencil spray. With a craft knife, cut out the grey moon in one whole piece. Set aside. Place the stencil on the shirt pressing down the cut edges. For a simple, uniform yellow moon, fill the open space with Blonde Ambition paint then go to step #6. For a moon like ours with shades of color, read step #3 - 5.
step 6 - Spray adhesive on the back of the witch stencil. Cut out the grey witch. Position the stencil so that the open area slightly overlaps the moon. Press all edges of the stencil to the fabric. Spray the opening with Black Tie paint. When dry, remove stencil.
step 9 - Cut out the grey cat and spray adhesive on the stencil back. Position the cat stencil anywhere you want on the fence. Make the cat’s legs shorter if it will create a better balanced image. Spray the open area with Black Tie. When dry remove the stencil.
step 10 - Attach hot fix rhinestones for the cat’s eyes with an iron or rhinestone applicator.
