DIY: Freezer Paper Stencil {Update}

Amanda sent me the cute little pictures of her sweet baby's shirt.

She used purple paint, then she applied a fabric ear (and I love love love the green floral with the purple). She finished it off with a grey embroidery floss eye. So cute, don't you think?

Here is the best set of directions I found {link}

1. Print out your stencil image
2. Using an exact-o knife, cut out the black sections
3. Iron on a piece of freezer paper on the opposite side of the fabric where you plan to do the stencil.
4. Iron on the stencil cut out of freezer paper onto your fabric.
5. Using fabric paint, dab (or brush) the stencil with paint thoroughly.
6. Dry briefly with a blow dryer (only takes a couple minutes).
7. Apply paint again, blow dry again until desired color is reached.
8. Peel off paper carefully.
9. Voila! Wait a couple days to wash it.

We learned a couple of things doing this. If you happen to buy spray fabric paint (which I don't recommend if you can find another kind), use a brush to apply it rather than spray it on. Make sure to dry the paint thoroughly between each application, especially if your paint runs on the thin side.

Best of luck. I really do recommend doing this craft. The possibilities are practically endless, and it's very budget friendly.

Thanks for reading,

Happy Crafting!
