I've looked at stuff on this site for forever, only recently gotten an account, and, this is my first project post!

The college I'm going to is having an open house for admitted students, so a bunch of us on facebook decided to have a little fun. The guys are wearing purple pants and the girls are wearing decorated yellow shirts. It's going to be a lot of fun!

So here's the back of my shirt. (JMU Dream Team/Class of 2014--I did not come up with the words, just the stencil.)



Here's the little design I chose to add to the front.



Here it is hanging between my two dressers.



I know it's not perfect, but everyone loves it and I was able to make a little tutorial and stencil for everyone that wanted to try.

Thanks for checking it out!

C&C welcome!

P.S. I'm wondering if anyone has a good link to some business with freezer paper stenciling, because I've sort of picked up that it cuts back on the bleeding a bit? I'm not a regular stenciler, but now I have a whole bottle of fabric medium and it's pretty easy, so I might as well.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

DUKES!  I'm afraid I don't have any comments about freezer paper stencils (it eludes me as well), but when I was browsing through the recent posts, I saw this and it made my day.  Glad to see that JMU spirit is still alive and kickin'!  <3 Crysta (class of '05)

Yay! I am beyond excited to be a Duke; I love everything about JMU (thus the shirt-liness)  Cheesy
