1  Pride T-shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Orione on: May 19, 2007 11:36:43 AM
With Birmingham (UK) Pride weekend coming up, I read through all the threads here on stencilling and textile paint, and decided to make my own pride t-shirt. So I went out and stacked up on paint and a hobby knife, then I cut up a sponge (as you do), and this is the result:

I'm quite pleased with it!
Normally it always takes about 5 attempts to get a new technique right, but due to all the advice and tutorials here, it only took one go! So thanks to everyone who has shared their tips and tricks!

Here's a picture of my stencilling gear:

And I wish I had a picture of my face, when I was cutting the stencil and the little inside bit of the loop of the R came out too LOL
It was sort of like this:


Stupidly I hadn't counted on that one. (Yes I am blonde.) But with the help of an extra pin, and some careful dabbing, I got the job done Smiley

Previously I made the hothead way too small and it only fit my puppet, but I'm so proud that I now made it big enough!

My lovely girlfriend modeling it for me:

Small turned out to be very very small, and now my mega-wuppie has something to keep him warm in winter:

Oops hehe

Oh well, I'm proud. It's the first time I have managed to follow a pattern, and I didn't drop a stitch. All I have to do now is make myself a bigger one.
To be continued.. Cheesy
