I made this t-shirt for my partner in the pond friends swap, as she really likes koi.  I used the good ole freezer paper method for the stencil.


Whole view of shirt.

Thanks animaeariesgirl!! 

The freezer paper method is so fun and easy!  All you have to do is:

- grab yourself a piece of freezer paper (Reynolds works nice).

- draw or trace the image you would like for your t-shirt on the nonwaxy side of the paper

- cut out with an exacto knife

- iron stencil onto t-shirt, waxy side down

- paint using fabric paint and brush (or my favorite, a makeup wedge)

- let dry

- Peel off freezer paper

This is my favorite method. I highly recommend it.  Cheesy
