My friend is having a baby!  In honor of this event, I made her some freezer paper stenciled onesies: Babysaurus Rex by mandamouse123, on Flickr

They came out awesome! How did you get the edges so crisp? When I did my one and only freezer paper stenciling my edges still seemed a little jagged.

Thanks!  All the domo and charmander were a pain in the butt to make-- to many layers of stenciling.  I'm not too sure about the domo one.  I might go back and fix the edges and paint the eyes/teeth.

To get the edges crisp, I make sure the iron is really hot.  I use the very tip of the iron to go around all of the edges a couple of times.  You want to make sure its really sealed.  Another thing you can do is paint the edges with up and down motions, instead of back and forth.  Lastly, I try to wait (so hard!) until the paint is completely dry before peeling the stencil up.  Hope that helps!
