I recently decided to try stenciling for a swap then got carried away making more shirts for my husband.  Here are some I made:

My husband loves these signs off of scrambler rides at amusement parks that warn you not to stand up during the ride.  I made him this shirt for our anniversary.  It was definitely the most difficult stencil I ever made.  I ended up with 36 little extra pieces on each side that I had to keep track of then put back together...it was like a bad puzzle.

Back - Bad Rider:

Front - Good Rider:

Toadette from Mario Kart Wii - made for the Mario Swap.  I wasn't sure how multiple colors would work with freezer paper stenciling.  I just did multiple stencils (one for each color). 

My husband also loves Yugos (those really ugly cars from the 80s) so I made him this shirt:

Two gnome shirts I made for a swap.  I found these patterns on craftster somewhere a while ago.
