Here's my entry.  I used off-white canvas fabric and the morsbag tutorial.  I love that tutorial.  I actually plan to make about 10 bags all together, for large shopping trips.  This challenge was very inspiring.  Thanks Leah.

I used freezer paper for the stencils.

Thanks!

Freezer paper stencilling is simple. 
1. You just draw, print, or trace your image onto the paper side of the freezer paper. 
2. Cut it out.
3. Iron it on to your fabric, wax side down. 
4. The waxy side adheres to the fabric, creating a barrier. 
5. Paint. 
6. Let dry.
7. Peel off freezer paper.

Repeat this process for all colors.
