Why go to all the trouble of a stencil?  If you take the initial letter into a graphics program and ask it to print out to the full size of the sheet, you can get a huge A4 initial to cut out and stick on.  You might even be able to print it on a sticky-back paper, but in any case, you can print it on really nice paper or even light card to look good.  And if you print on light card, you can cut your own stencil with a craft knife - be careful!

Enthusiastic worker in almost all textile media, currently heavily involved in theatrical costumes.  Also love papier-mach and mosaic work and gardening.  Happy to meet new people too.
