DIY: HOW TO MAKE CAT PRINT TIGHTS
I have been seeing a lot of nude tights recently that have tattoo-like outlines on them. I think they look great but they are always so overpriced in shops! I usually don't mind paying a bit more for a really nice item but tights tear so easily and I can't justify spending a lot of money on them. Making them yourself is not only a whole lot cheaper but enables you to create your own designs. They also look great and are easy to replace if ripped.
What you will need:
- Paper and pencil
- Pair of nude colour tights
- Wide drinking glass (or any cylinder shaped item that the tights can be stretched across)
- Permanent marker pen
Create a design on paper. I have included a template of the design I drew above if you would like to use it.
If you want the design to be in a particular place wear the tights and mark a dot where you want the centre of the design to be. Next stretch the tights over a cylinder shaped object. I chose a large tumbler glass as its the perfect size and the marker pen won't stain the glass.
Cut out the template and place it in between the glass and the tights. Line it up with the dot if you made one.
Draw over the template with a permanent marker. Be careful not to pull the fabric as you're drawling. I went over the lines by dotting the pen.
Do the same thing on any other areas on the tights that you wish to draw on.
And you're done!
I hope you found this helpful. If you decide to give this a go I'd love to know how yours turned out! Thanks for reading :)
