I didn't have any paint so I used fabric instead.

Cutest stencil ever:


Step 1: Cut out the image the opposite of how you'd normally cut out a stencil:


Tape it onto fabric (that won't fray):


Cut it out:


Don't forget the details:


Remove the tape/pattern:


Glue it onto your shirt with washable fabric glue. (Washable=made for fabric that will be washed. It does not mean it will wash off.)


In case you were wondering why my shirt looked odd, it's because it's cut in half in the back to be turned into a corset:

That is really cute.  It looks like Winnie the Pooh Smiley

And the low-carb diet thing pisses me off (I love pasta and whole grains and have to eat a lot of fiber to ward off colon cancer, which runs in my family, and the idea of eating a bunch of high-fat, high-cholesterol food in place of bread does not appeal to me, either), so more points for you and your adorable stencil.  Did you design it yourself?

It looks like Winnie the Pooh because it is. Smiley Disney has a new line called cuties with super chubby/cutified versions of their characters.

The actual stencil came from...well, that's odd. A few days ago http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=_stencilry had their web site listed as something completely different and I got the stencil from their. Apparently they just changed everything. Sad

My low carb rant: Everyone at my work (well at least 30 out of 40 people) are on the Atkins diet or something like it. One day one of my coworkers told me I should try it. First of all, telling someone they should try any diet sounds a whole lot like "Hey, you're a big fat cow. To lose some weight you should do this". I'm not fat and even if I was I don't think it's polite for some stranger to suggest how I lose weight. I don't believe in fad diets. I believe in eating healthy and exercising. I'm vegetarian so the Atkins diet = starving to death. What ever happened to the food pyramid? Breads, pasta and fruits are suddenly bad for me? lol, no. They can all live off their greasy burgers and be really thin 30 year olds that die of heart attacks. I'll pass thanks. Smiley

Amen, sister!  I wholeheartedly embrace the food pyramid.  And I would rather be a little chubby but overall very healthy than be skinny with clogged arteries because of Atkins (Dr. Atkins himself died of a heart attack).  The only diets I agree with are Weight Watchers (its based on portions and actually nutritionally sound) and the diabetic diet (which is also nutritionally sound, and we could all do with less sugar).

And I agree...judging by your avatar pic, you=not fat, and regardless of that, unsolicited diet advice is VERY rude.

My friend has an "I heart carbs" button (similar to the I heart NY design), and I'm seriously considering making her something with that stencil on it...
