Printed Puppy Tee Shirt


Have you seen this Kia commercial? I'm not going to lie, I love these hamsters, and when I saw this 'All Buff. No Fluff.' shirt, I was in love. Teemo needed one. Only, that wasn't Teemo's style. He needed 'All Fluff. No Buff.'. So here's a template and an easy way to transform a cheap eBay puppy tee into something fun!

What You'll Need

  • Cheap Puppy Tee (I got mine here)
  • Freezer Paper
  • Fabric Paint
  • Exacto Blade
  • Iron & Ironing Board
  • Sponge Brush
  • Small Paint Brush


For a more detailed tutorial on stenciling with freezer paper, check out my tutorial on Cut Out and Keep. First, you will need to print this PDF at the size of your t-shirt. Measure your dogs back from Front leg to front leg, then decrease a bit. Basically, you need the words to go across the top of your dog's back. Print out the image on normal paper, tape to a piece of freezer paper, and carefully cut out with an exacto blade with bridges for letters with white insides (like O and B) as seen above.

Once cut out, place a few sheets of scrap of paper inside the tee shirt, and iron slightly. Iron the freezer paper onto the tee shirt - it will stick well - until flat and completely stuck to the tee. Paint with a spronge brush over the stencil. Allow to dry, remove, and fill in any gaps with a thin paint brush - and voila!
