Halloween Costume Help: Sriracha Label

As another Halloween rolls around, I've noticed increased activity around my Sriracha Halloween post, in which I showed off the Sriracha and Chili Garlic costumes I made for us last fall.

So, I thought it would be helpful if I shared a little more about how I drew the shirts with white puff paint, and if I shared a black-and-white version of the Sriracha label.

First up, another photo of the costumes:



And now a black and white version of the label, which you can download:
Here it is as a downloadable PDF version and the JPG version

A few methods for transferring this image to fabric:
  • Print it out on iron-on transfer paper, iron it on to your fabric, and then go over the image with a white paint pen or white fabric paint
  • Enlarge the image on your computer, place fabric over your monitor or laptop screen so that the image shines through the fabric, trace the image lightly with a fabric-marking pen (making sure the ink doesn't bleed through onto your screen), and then go over the image with white fabric paint
  • Print the image, blown up as large as you like, onto regular paper. Cut out the various pieces of the image, and free-hand copy the pieces of the image onto the fabric, in the appropriate placement, with white fabric paint, referring to the image to maintain proportions
Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.
