I have been having fun with the freezerpaper stencil technique recently.  These two shirts were made for nmcakemom07's Hub and son.


For nongamers, the AFK stand for Away From Keyboard.  I kind of free handed this stencil.  I made the shirt, then laid the freezer paper on top.  I marked the spacing lines with a ruler, then ruff drew the text.  I corrected a few of the lines while I was cutting.  And I had to patch some of the text a bit, because I didn't get the spacing 100% right.  I covered up the exposed parts of the shirt between words with painters tape.


This one was for her son.  He likes elephants and T-Rex.  I wanted to do a T-Rex since he has received a few elephant shirts.  I found a picture on line to use as the base.  I edited that image to a sketch at picnik.com, then printed it out.  I drew the T Rex part in and then laid the freezer paper over and traced it.  Iron and Paint like normal.  But it wasn't quite right, so I took it to my machine and sewed around the Dino to define it a bit better.  The shirt color is right in the larger picture.  I just liked the color in the closer image Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

YAY!  Freezer paper is so fun!  I've been playing around with it lately, as well.  I love that T-Rex one!  Its amazing that you can use your sewing machine to go around it like that.  I would never be able to do something like that.  Me and my sewing machine don't get along much.  There is much swearing and struggling.

Beautiful job on all the free-handing!

Thanks jillybeans.  The sewing technique is free motion quilt/embroidery.  You have to be able to drop your feed dogs, and it works best if you have a darning or freemotion foot.  You also need to be able to set the foot at the notch just above where it would be touching the machine.  I hardly ever use my machine with the feed dogs up anymore, even for strait stitching.  Some machines that I have worked with make me want to do it all by hand, so I know what you mean Grin

Both of my guys love their shirts.  They are the first ones on after the laundry is done.

Given a cape, tiara and a strong cup of coffee, yeah, I could rule the world.
