So I have been feeling the urge to stencil for a while, and I finally dove in!  The first shirt is for my boyfriend, modeled beautifully by my little (but bigger than me) brother.  I made the stencil myself, not that it was terribly hard.  Just piano keys (cuz my boy plays).



and some detail



Then I wanted a stenciled shirt, so I took a generic unisex shirt from Michaels that I have since taken in for a nicer fit.  I found the stencil at freewebs.com/stencilcore.  Lots of good stuff there.  My fingers are a little tired, and the tiny little bits took forever to cut out, but I call it worth it!



Thanks for looking, and I apologize for the blurry photos.  The pink one is actually really crisp outlines, but I was too lazy to take anymore photos.  Smiley

I like the piano keys one. I play and I was thinking of making a tee like that. it doesn't look corny like a lot of the dumb piano key things that people wear. like vests and stuff. my teacher always wore those. it looks good.

Actually I used fabric paint because my mom has *tons* and I didn't have any good spray paint on hand.  So yeah, they're fabric paint.  Hopefully it holds up.
