Ok so my friend's birthday is coming up and she likes squirrels. A lot. So I thought: easy, I'll make her a squirrel tshirt. Well the dearth of squirrel stencils left me with a slightly odd-shaped one. I'm having trouble deciding where to put it.
This was my first location:

(sorry for the crappy edge-of-couch shot. And you can see my hideous pink carpet too!)

I do a lot of stencils right over the chest but this stencil looked odd there, I think because it's too wide. So my options right now are:
a) Bottom edge wrapping ever so slightly around the side, like in the picture
b) Right shoulder overlapping on the sleeve a bit.
c) Under the arm off to one side

Any other suggestions and/or feedback would be much appreciated!

(sorry for my wordiness, but I've always believed that concise-ness is overrated)

Maybe A. I have another suggestion though. You might want to put the squirrel in the center on the back. Just a suggestion though Smiley.

My vote is for position A. It will be sooooo cute!

C: "If I had a nickel for every time I've heard that..."

I WIST I had all these super cool things!

See you in the clouds, sweet little Jackson.

Thanks for the advice, guys! I think I will go for A, and I'll probably post it over in completed projects...
