A friend of mine recently had a baby girl, and with our entire Harry Potter forum, we decided to buy her a bunch of gifts, some of them hand-made. I have stenciled before, and so the entire forum decided that I had to stencil the carrier sling. I thought it would be a piece of cake... Just one giant Pooh drawing (her favourite of all times), and that was it. Boy, was I wrong...
When the sling eventually arrived, very late (I was so busy I could barely go to the loo and dear Keira decided to arrive sooner than expected) I found out that you can fold and knot a sling in so many ways that I could not just do one big painting. I took too much of time, pondering what to do, when, browsing for Pooh drawings, I just choose to use the tiny animals and flowers that are so typical for Winnie The Pooh. I enlarged them (better, I blew them u big time), and got to work.

I finished this carrier sling without a single break... I think, can't remember properly, that it took me three hours, no less. My back was so sore afterwards, but it was worth it. I loved every minute of the process, and the happy mum and dad are also very happy with the result! Yay, mission acomplished! Picture overload now?


I never knew that slings had that much fabric in them. Yikes! This is only the middle part, I could not possibly get the other metres in the picture as well. They were nicely draped over our kitchen chairs. This is a picture of all the stencils. And I couldn't be happier with the lack of freezer paper for this task. I LOVE sticky paper for sand art Tongue.


I fell in love with that little bee... So cute! The butterfly on the other hand was a pain to cut out.




Not to mention, keeping track of those petal leaves while I was cutting... *sigh* I just gave them a number.


All done! This picture was made quite early in the morning, as I had to go to school (Teacher), and we would go ice skating. Dad draped it unto mum's laundry rack, and helped me peel the paper off. He was surprised and I was so happy that the colours stood out so well. They always look so vague when the white paper is still glued on.

And a couple of close-ups!






Yellow is a pain. It just doens't cover up so well...

That is a huge amount of material, I would never have guessed so much went in the sling! Well done on the stencilling

Just for good measure, I went searching for the right amount of fabric that I had on my table... A whooping 5m 40. I have no idea what length I should convert it to, inch, miles, feet *iek*, so I leave that to your computer skills.
