There is a better way to keep your stencils sticking to your fabric (or other happy medium Wink) than tape. Get a spray can of stencil adhesive. I think it is probably meant for walls, but it works just fine on clothing. Just don't spray too much or leave it on for way long. It works great for me.

there's also this brand called sulky, meant for embroidering and sewing, but it *is* a temporary spray that lasts no more than 5 days.  it's a good temp spray that leaves no residue.

Using freezer paper works alot better for me, you can just iron it without steam and it peels off very easily.
It's good because you don't have to mess with any adhesives, plus it's cheaper.

Hey i have some questions that i haven't seen answered anywhere else..and they probably sound stupid lol but anyway
with spray adhesive, do you spray it onto the fabric you're stencilling? and if you do...then do you cleasn it off the areas you want to paint or will the pain still stick to the fabric like normal?

with spray adhesive you spray it onto the stencil and then place it on the shirt.

is there any stencil spray adhesive that is not incredibly toxic? The one I picked up warned that pregnant women shouldn't use it and that it caused all kinds of nasty problems.  I decided to stick with freezer paper, don't feel like ruining my lungs for a few stencils.

i use "stencil magic- stencil adhesive" it comes in a spray can and a kind of glue stick thing where you dab it around the edges of the stencil. i got mine at Michaels but i've seen them at AC Moore. both work amazing and im pretty sure theyre non-toxic. hey, i havent died yet!  Wink
