So I know I have seen these projects on here before but this is my little addition.
I am starting an etsy shop and among other projects I used this technique, I made some labels.



It was soooo simple and I already had the fabric and freezer paper [I am a freezer paper stencil junky!]



There are a bunch more photos and a tutorial on my blog

If you rinse it in white vinegar and then water it helps the colors to stay.

Cool!
I used the printable fabric once and started to get suspicious of whether they were worth the money and when I looked up printing on fabric I found a few people that said to use freezer paper.  Its just an awesomely simple idea.
