Lovely stenciling, FiberAlchemist!  What kind of paint did you use for the hunger games sweatshirt and how did you apply it?  I always have troubles with the metallics, because the one I was using didn't take well to a sponge.

I just used a plain white fabric paint to help cover the black and then I used Martha Stewart fabric medium and Martha acrylic paints (one a metallic and one a glitter) mixed at one part medium and two parts paint.  I applied it with a half inch flat paintbrush.  To get good even coverage I had to do two coats of the copper mixture.

Fibre, how do you get such wonderfully clean edges on your stencils?  My freezer paper stencils always seem to seep most awfully.  I'm wondering if it's that I'm not using good enough fabric medium...

I don't think I'm doing anything special.  I just try to make sure the stencil is really attached to the shirt and I try to do a couple of thin coats.  I feel like this keeps the stencil from getting wet and wrinkly.  And if I do end up with some bleeding after I remove the stencil I use fabric paint in the color of the shirt and clean up my edges.  On the Hunger Games Hoodie I had some fuzzy edges in the center around the building and I just used black fabric paint to clean everything up.

everything you made is nice, fiber! I espescially love the quidditch gloves!

Audania, very lovely bags! Are they tricky to make??

Not too tricky! The worst part was doing the math for the side triangle pieces  Roll Eyes . I suck at math and pity my children when they get into higher education and are asking for help from me lol. I used a quarter inch drill bit for the holes for the straps, buttons, and loop and I think next time I would go a tiny bit bigger. It's pretty touch to squeeze so much fabric into that little space - especially the wool one (black).  It's a basic remove the book pages (and gift with book purse Wink )and drill holes. Measure four triangle pieces and sew two together with right sides facing; flip to right side out and top stitch. Measure main book sides with an extra half inch on each side that you iron under, glue the triangle pieces to the sides. Measure two straps 24" long and 3" wide that you fold in half, right sides facing, and stitch along long cut edge only. Flip to right sides out and attach one strap by sliding through one hole in a corner and glue down once you have only an inch inside. Repeat for other strap. I braided a piece of yarn for the loop and inserted it the same way as the strap, only insert second side back into same hole and knot at the hole to keep it from coming out before gluing end pieces down inside. I also attached my button closures with yarn as well. Then glue in the rectangular pieces. My spine was 1" wide and 6" long so I cut a piece of cardboard to that size and a piece of fabric 2" wide and 7" long. I glued that strip to the cardboard and then the whole bit to the inside of the purse to keep it all looking nice and neat.

Whew! I think that was all. Let me know if you have any questions!
