Way back in the spring I had hopes of making myself a lavender cat print romper.
I undertook the project and printed out various cat silhouettes onto cardstock, cut the shapes out with an X-Acto knife, laminated the paper, and then cut the laminated cat shapes out to make 4 cat stencils. While searching for some lavender fabric and a good romper pattern, I tested the stencils with different types of fabric paint. I never found the fabric and pattern I had in mind, so the stencils sat on my desk the whole summer acquiring dust.
Then the cats came back.
I used the stencils and white fabric paint to add a heart crawling with cats spelling out the word "cat"!
Talk about a multidimensional learning experience! I even got to practice my patience skills! It's no lavender cat print romper, but I am just as delighted with this shirt as I was with the romper prospect.
As a final note, of course I have to wear this shirt with my hand painted cat pendant! My crafty cat love is finally satisfied!
