I have been wanting to try stenciling with freezer paper for a while now, but since I live in Germany and freezer paper is nowhere to be found here I had to wait until I found an online quilting store that sells it.
But, without much further ado, here is the result of my first attempt (this is also my first post ever on craftster, so I hope I actually figured out how to post these links etc.)

Great stencil - love the details and the miniscule lettering Smiley

I always use "Bucheinschlagfolie" (self-adhesive transparent foil) for stencils on clothing. No ironing, but maybe less detailed, because it's thicker. Hm, maybe I should give the roll of freezer paper that's been lying around here for ages a try.

Here's some pictures for the people who are scared of links, mostly because this shirt is too awesome to miss:

You are a trooper for cutting out all those tiny letters! I would have gone crazy!
