Hello so this are my *counts* 2nd and 3rd stencill ever ^^
First one, just really cute (every one knows this image I think, no?) and I stencilled on a altered shirt

Second one,
a present for my niece which held her birthday party on Saturday. Twinkle bell 'cause someone gave her that name and I thought it would be really cute on a shirt. And her fav colour is blue.

whole shirt layed out on the couch

On this picture you can see the grade of shade of the blue. I first painted everything blue than added white on the wings and darker blue on her legs.
Oh my niece loved it ^^ she screamed when she saw it, what else can you ask for Cheesy

So for the little tutorial for stencilling ( for you guys out there who, like me, don't have glue that doesn't make stains Sad)
What you need:
- transparants
- fabric paint + brush or spongebob
- double sided tape
- exacto knife
How to:
- look for a picture you like (edit it with photoshop or something, lot's of tuts online)
- print it on your transparant
(- if you don't have a transparant where you can print on, just print it out on regular paper and than stick it under the transparant and start cutting)
- start cutting (don't forget to secure your little islands, pieces which will be completely loose from the main thing, so surrounded with all black, am I understanding?)
- add double sided tape to the back (this will be sticking on the clothing piece)
- cut again so the design is all surrounded by double sided tape
- pull of the foil of the double sided tape and stick it where you want
- Tape the edge of the transparant to the clothing piece
- COVER ALL THE REST OF YOUR CLOTHING PIECE! (this is really necessary for people who smudge (like me)! and also if you don't think you're going to make stains, you probably will!)
- start painting
- 'cause you have all the edges of the designs stick to the fabric you can paint or dipp or whatever you want Wink
- wait for the paint to dry
- remove all the cover and tape + the design (be careful if you want to use that design again)
- iron the back
- finished !

Hope you understand this Smiley Thank you for reading and feel free to leave comments below ^^s

Thanks for the tut-- I'm always curious to learn how others stencil.  And, I LOVE the Twinkle Belle tee.  The shading of the fairy is excellent, and the lettering across the top is perfect.  What a great gift!

... has anyone seen my shoes? I kicked them off in a fit of joy.
