Freezer Paper Stencils
On January 22, I pulled this bit out of the newspaper. A Freezer Paper Stenciling tutorial. Even longer ago - Amy of: My Land tipped me off to where I could find freezer paper - which had previously elluded me in my community. Even longer than that ago, I had grabbed these onesies at the dollar store, intending to give them to my daughter to clothe her stuffed friends with, (she likes to dress them in her own clothing, which is getting toooooo big).
So, on this chilly day, after shoveling my driveway AGAIN, I came in and decided to give the Freezer Paper Stencils a try. These are some silly little sketches that I had in a sketchbook, which were simple enough to create templates from. By golly, they ARE easy. I was a little slow out of the gate, but now I want to freezer paper stencil everything in sight!
I noticed that if you click on the picture, it blows the images up -- waaaaay up. The edges aren't as messy as they appear in this photo, but I confess I could have done a more perfect job. The princess leg is a little imperfect, and the birds beak could be sharper. But, a stuffed lion is most likely going to be wearing these after all. This was merely an experiment for me - as I was half expecting something to go horribly wrong. Next time, I'll work on perfect.
