I bought this shirt at Salvation army for like 2.50 and it still had the tags on it, it's a really nice boys t-shirt from JC Penney and it fits me like perfect.  So I was so excited to stencil this on it since the shirt is like a heather red color and the paint is silver metallic, I thought it would look really nice.  I was so nervous about it being centered because somehow I'm really bad at centering stuff.  I even folded the shirt and ironed it down the middle so I could be sure I was placing it right.  Well something happened and it came out a half inch off center.  So now this perfect shirt is ruined!  So anyways, I'm wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions on how to center stuff and how to get it horizontal too, because obviously it's not horizontal either.  Oh and pay no mind to the side of the picture, that's just my scanner.  Sorry for the long story.

I wouldnt say being an inch off center ruins the shirt...maybe what vexy5260 is saying that you could say you meant it to be off center!

Yeah, it's not all that bad, but it is still a little obvious.  An inch doesn't seem like much but it kinda is.  To me anyway, maybe I'm picky.

Reconstruct the shirt so that it is in the center?

Yea, that might work. You did a really great job on the stencil itself, not to mention that Relient K rocks. Good luck fixing it  Smiley

I was thinking about doing that, but I'm not sure how.  I don't like the idea of cutting it out and sewing it onto another shirt, I think that looks kinda cheap and obvious (no offence to anyone who does that!)  So, what else would you recommend?

This is my third comment in a row, haha.  I did another Relient K stencil, thought I'd share it.  This one is centered.  I ironed just the edges of the paper and then tried it on to see how it was, so it came out a lot better.  I wish I could show the whole shirt but I don't have a digital camera so I had to scan it.
