Freezer paper stenciling


In November, in preparation for our Craft Social, I tried freezer paper stenciling for the first time. I didn't experiment with many fabrics so I can't say whether my less-than-perfect results were due to the fabric type or due to my tendency to apply too much paint. Maybe both.
Above are bags we gave to our kids' cousins for Christmas. My kids helped choose the images and paint colors, but I did the cutting, ironing and painting.
Also above is a bag I made for my sister. We're Seinfeld fans so I painted on a quote that I thought would be funny when remembering the context and appropriate for grocery shopping (although I don't know if she uses it in that capacity or not). It was fun to make but definitely tedious in cutting all those letters. I probably should have re-ironed it before taking a picture.
If you've never tried freezer paper stenciling but would like to, here's a tutorial to get you started. I would just advise that you use a pretty smooth fabric and enough paint to fill out your stencil without over applying it. Maybe a onesie with a stenciled shamrock is in order for St. Patrick's Day? Everything's cuter on onesies.

Yes, I do use it for grocery shopping.

And I like the onesie idea. I have friends who are expecting or about to expect. Perhaps a project is in order?

I smile every time I think of the peas bag! Did we discuss doing a series of bags with Seinfeld quotes?

What a great and easy idea ... I'm DYING to try this out. Do you mind me asking where you got the stencil for the turtle? Our family HEARTS turtles and I love the one you made!! Thanks for sharing your great idea!

The site for the R4i-SDHC flash card posted a video bountiful demo of what emerge to be the R4i running on a Dsi system with the 1.4 firmware. The website presently does R4i not mention whether this is finished through an R4i-SDHC upgrade or ds r4 through new hardware. Even few of them can refund if the product found to be defective. One should call at the R4DS customer service centers for gaining assistance in order to seek good product which will mark best image of the product in the market.

When you place the R4i SDHC or the EZ Flash into your Nintendo Ds it will immediately bring up a R4 DS menu that features three options. The first option is called as ‘Games.’ With this option you can run home brew programs and can also back-up your favorite and most valued R4 card video games. You identify the firmware that was マジコン launched not even a week ago, and deleted flash card compatibility? The video demo was about a retail game ROM, which is not predominantly outstanding, but does serve as verification of flash card compatibility. The second option is called ‘Multimedia.’ With this R4 Card option you can store and listen to MP3′s and also watch movies that are in.dpg format and can read e-books along with taking advantage of other media applications. The third option on the menu is called ‘Book Slot.’

Consumers are always at the safer end if they buy R4 DS Card products from online r4 ds 購入 shops as they provide trial period along with the product. Consumers should be aware that R4i Card backs soft reset function along with moon shell 1.6 supporting Acekard 2i software reset function. We will locate out more about R4i-SDHC as more flash cards pick up on whatever tool is in use..

Do you think you could use a Cricut (or other die cutting machine) to create the stencils?? Freezer paper would certainly fit in the machine I just got (hence my mania)....
