    Lay pattern pieces down on Tee, creating a motif. Start from the center of the neckline and trace off with something wash-able. Doing this from the inside of the shirt to avoid marking it permanently is also a good idea.

You can cut the holes out leaving a 1/2" of material inside, then cut at the edges, fold under and hem so the shirt will stay nice and neat and the fabric wont fray. It will also make it look more professional :)
