...and work with what you have. Yesterday after I made this shirt I went to the fabric store looking for a stencil but didn't find one I liked, so I decided to make my own. I googled shirt prints online and found this printed shirt I liked. I don't have a printer so I had to improvise and use what I had at home.
Wrap tissue paper
Blade and Scissors
This my shirt with the stain...
Some materials I used...
The design I liked (link provided above).
First I set my laptop to the brightest setting. Then I taped the tissue paper onto my laptop screen and traced the design on the paper...
After that I taped the outline to the back of the paper plate.
Then I traced the outline on the window so I could see better.
I went over the outline with pen (the plate was glossy and it was hard to see the pencil).
Using scissors I cut the edge of the plate, then with the blade I carefully cut out the design, I would suggest using a box cutter instead but I left mine at work.
I used an old notebook as the surface to cut out the design, it's easier to cut and you won't have to worry about cutting past the paper plate.
Once the stencil was cut I taped it onto my shirt and traced it using the fabric marker.
Then by looking at the web picture I went over the parts that needed to be shaded. I let it dry and ironed it and voila my shirt is done! You can still see the stain but now it seems to be part of the design.
Like I said, it is much easier if you have a printer but I don't have one, eventually I'll get one. ^_^
