This is my first time trying out this stencil technique using freezer paper and fabric paint. I was really, really nervous as I was peeling the paper after the paint had dried, paranoid that paint had seeped under the paper or that it would immediately peel off. But instead, crisp lines were all I found and I was blown away! I wasn't sure this would work and now that it did, I want to stencil everything! It's my new favorite hobby!

Anyways, here is the shirt I stenciled, incorporating two things I love very much: coffee and puns!



And a close up of the design:



Thanks for looking!

Very nice!  What kind of paint did you use?  I'm kindof paranoid about the freezing paper technique too... I have the paper but I'm not sure which paint will work!

I used the Tulip fabric paint. What remains to be seen is what happens in the washing machine....supposed ly it should be fine if washed inside out. However I'm also paranoid about that!

I also want to try some of the fabric inks and see what happens. And I believe there are some heat-setting paints as well that may be more resilient. I have some experimentation ahead of me!
