I made this tank top this summer, but never posted it because I was using the same stencil for a swap item and didn't want to spoil the surprise!


So here's the "before" tee loved the color and how soft it is, but the size was meh:




I reconned it using one of the Generation T projects on tie-top tanks as a guideline (I renewed that book as many times as possible this summer)...it actually fits better than it looks here, since I fixed it up under the arms...
then I needed a good test subject for my first ever stencil, so it turned into this:




close up of the stencil:




the best part is that the mustard colored shirt is the perfect shade for this guy!



EDIT: I know this isn't a stencil forum, but to give credit, I got this stencil pattern from Stencilry.org and used its tutorial on freezer paper as a guide for how to put it on the shirt.
