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) will give you more information.

I made a stencil of my face and painted it onto a shirt for me to wear.  Cheesy



I used freezer paper and silver paint.

Here's the picture I used to make the stencil:


Me wearing the shirt:

It stretched a bit, but I still love it.

I cut up an old pillow and used the filling from that.
I've never used rice as a filling, so I have no idea how that would be, sorry.
I imagine that it would work, but probably won't be very squishy. haha
