Your shirt rocks, and thank you sooo much for posting that. My friend and I have been wanting to screenprint for a while, but we're too lazy for the ways we've discovered. Now to screenprint! *insert theme music here* BTW the way, you rock!

I used some of those cheapy 12 for $1 paintbrushes, the ones that have brightly-colored plastic handles, and painted the glue on.

I just bought a jar of modge podge.  It works great, and you can rinse the screen out with water (to save for later) and not mess up your design.

By the way, the first print I made was with pantyhose, which worked fine, except I would never be able to take the "screen" out of the embroidery hoop without the design getting messed up.  So I bought some sheer curtain fabric and made the design again on that.

i've already got some pantyhose stretched out at home to paint with glue tonight.  i was going to try the curtain netting but thought the holes would be too big for a detailed print.

I just did a stencil that way, and although it worked better than nearly all of my previous attempts ever, I couldn't get the edges sharp enough. They're all raggedy and stuff, and my image wasn't even as detailed as your Chewy. I assumed my problem was that I had way too much fun Mod Podge-ing my stencil and did it too much, but that's just a guess. That said, I definitely liked it compared to a lot of other ways to stencil. Except for the ragged edges (which was the first thing my sister pointed out about it).
