I did some screen printing in college, but once you don't have access to the screens or the fancy equipment, it's hard to keep it up.  Well, instead I turned to the DIY world, and made myself a "screen printed" hoodie using a feezer paper stencil!  I added a few sailor stripes that wrap around the front using masking tape, and a fleur de lis from an old stencil I had lying around.



I used my favorite nautical design, the Seven Seas ship.  I be a sailor. Arr.

I just did my first freezer paper stencil a few weeks ago.  You did such a good job.  Mine was really simple.

WOW!
You did such a good job!
How did you do the little speckling? Did you just platter the paint?

Ohhh, lovely!  Your stencil is lovely and detailed and I love your stripes!  How did you splatter your paint for that??

To do the splatter effect on the stripes, you can get spray on fabric paint.  it's really neat because you can get gradient and splatter effects.  I bought mine at Miachel's craft store.  I've seen them in fabric shops too.
