First project posted on Craftster! Woot! I mostly just copy & pasted this from my blog because I'm tired and lazy and it's ridiculously hot out. I promise I won't do that all the time.

These are the very first shirts I've ever stenciled. It was, um, a learning experience.

(Okay, I'm being hard on myself. They're not bad considering they're my first ones and I suck at using exacto knives. I'm just a perfectionist sometimes.)

The sunglasses shirt actually turned out the best, which surprised me because it was my practice stencil. I picked it out just because I knew it would be easy to cut, to sort of ease myself into stencil making. Apparently there's some truth to the saying "Keep It Simple Stupid".

As you can see, it's cracking a little bit, but I don't really mind.

Poor robot. His heart is black because it's cold and metallic and cannot feel love. Also he is slightly off-center which is going to bug the crap out of me.

And he looks wonky when I wear it because, well...boobs.

This one turned out okay, but I really should have done it on a shirt that wasn't so dark (and, y'know, made sure it was centered (seriously, it's going to make me crazy, oh my god)).

Stencils: Stencilry
Materials: $4 Wal-Mart tees, freezer paper, and good ol' cheap-ola Tulip fabric paint.

I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed. L. Frank Baum

Great projects! I love the robot, I thought you meant to have him off center cause he's leaning to wave.
