OMG. I so would not worry. Your friend will love it! I'm sure.

I'm very curious about what you used to get such great resuls.  What sort of stencil material did you use (freezer paper, plastic, etc.) and how did you cut it?

I used contact paper ... it's that sticky thin plastic stuff that you use to cover school books with? It's called contact in Australia but I don't know if it's common in the US?

I cut it with the equivelant of an exacto knife ... we call them stanley knives and I think the blades are bigger maybe? ... looks like this

I just made sure I had a new blade so it was nice and sharp ... plus I've been doing various other papercraft stuff with one for years so you kind of get the right 'feel' for it after awhile. I had actually had to cut two out ... cause I needed to do a trial version which I then made changes based on ... so that was a pain lol.

I can post a copy of the stencil if anyone wants to use it ... I'll do it on the weekend when I have a computer with broadband lol

I agree with everyone else: the shirt looks awesome and I'm sure your friend will think so too! I'd love a copy of the stencil to use if it's not too much trouble Grin

you ought to be warned that I have something of a camera obsession, so obviously, this presses my buttons, flash or otherwise. tell you the truth - it's a great shirt, looks like a damn clean stencil too. Smiley hooray!

He will love it, if he's not maaaaaaad! Wink

I love the crispness of the stenciling and I love the fact that you put the print off center - that makes it look even more professional. Great technique, great work!

It is truly gorgeous.
