Did u use a program for the stencil??
If you look online for tutorials on how to turn a photo into a stencil, most will have you use photoshop or photoshop alternatives, but all I used was Microsoft Word and Paint. I put the picture onto a Word document and recolored it to black and white. Then I saved that image and cleaned it up on paint.
What is freezer paper though?
It's paper that is coated with plastic on one side. You draw and cut out your stencil then iron it onto the fabric.
This tutorial (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=15045.0
