So since my friends are always how I make the shirts that I stencil, or asking me to make some for them, I decided it was time for a stenciling party! So a couple of hours and 3 splodges of black paint on my CREAM carpet later, I give you the results like a proud mother bird!

Ok, Ok mine first:

I'm quite pleased with how clean the lines are. I can't wait to wear it and proclaim my nerdiness and excellent musical taste to the world

My friend's shirt (and her toes)


My other friend's shirt (and her excited face lol)


3rd friend's:


All together now (including two I forgot to take individual pictures of)


The "Beam me up, Scotty" also turned out very well, but my newbie friend didn't anticipate the frustratingnness of cutting out all those letters, so by the time she was done I was pretty glad to take the knife off her. The shorts at the bottom there say "Nick" "Joe" and "Kevin" in little hearts (The jonas brothers, btw, my friend's unhealthy obsession) but it bled a lot Sad Not my buddy's fault, but none of us realised that putting the stencil on a seam would prevent it from sticking down.
All of the above done with freezer paper.


Sorry for my rambling, but I assure you I'm not labouring under the delusion that anyone actually read it all. Feedback appreciated all the same.

They look quite professional and they are definately appreciated just from the smile we saw  Cheesy You have tons of patience because my stencils never turn out as smooth.

Thank you kindly, all!
Re:patience, you wouldn't be saying that if you heard the whining I had to listen to while we were doing the cutting Tongue I did assure them that it would be worth it, though.

Re:TMBG. They rawk. That is all.
