  1. Cut 2" off both sleeves on both T-shirts. Cut out neck from both.

  3. At sides of shirt, snip through every other strip made by cuts in step 2, starting with top strip.
  4. Down center margin, cut 2" horizontal slits between strips you snipped through in step 3. See photo. Make cuts at vertical midpoint between those strips.
  5. Thread one strip through slit in middle, pulling up through hole from inside T-shirt. Without twisting, pin to side of T-shirt it was originally cut from. Repeat for other side.
  6. Using sewing machine, sew along each pinned edge.
  7. Iron Zombie iron-on to center front of T-shirt following directions on package.
