I took a break too to do some other swaps and focus on small item swaps, but I would be interested in popping in and out of this one in the future again.

I would be interested - but there are no real children in my family/acquaintances anymore - could just blank decorated note cards, or some other occasion be swapped in the some of them?

26  Craft Swaps / ACTIVE SWAPS WHERE SIGN-UP PERIOD HAS CLOSED / Re: CRAFT MY PET FOR ME! (SU FULL;SO July 21, 2014) ***PARTNERS ASSIGNED*** on: June 30, 2014 05:57:07 PM
I have my plans, just need to do some image work, and get some supplies.  I think DH is going away this weekend with the dogs to help his family with a farm house they are renovating for a family cottage so I may be able to sit down and craft to my hearts content all weekend, especially as it is my scheduled long weekend off (the joys of shift work).

28  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stencil on Canvas Tote on: June 28, 2014 07:22:53 PM
You could give it a wash to make sure there isn't any coating of anything on it, then iron it flat.  I have done well on cotton canvas with freezer paper stencils, because then you can iron the pattern on to get good adhesion.  Also, in case you are heavy in your application of paint, you may want to put some scrap paper/newspaper in the bag when painting, to make sure there is no bleeding of paint through to the opposite side.  Also to ensure that the paint doesn't wear off with washing, you may want to add some fabric paint medium to the paint.  I think Plaid makes a version of it, and I personally use the Golden brand.  Then when it dries, you can set it by ironing, and it will be more flexible and wear better through washing, rather than just plain acrylic.

Here is a tutorial I posted on my blog a few years ago that may be helpful for you.

Yes, it is lovely - did you add any kind of clear coat or varnish to it afterwards?
