That is absolutely darling! I like that you used variegated yarn. I'd wear one.

Very cute!
And don't worry about having to seam rip, I've been sewing for years and I still have to. You do really beautiful work!

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: First stencil... with messy edges/uneven paint coverage- opinions? on: September 07, 2008 12:15:05 PM
I think it looks good as is, kind of worn and awesome.
However, and I totally sound like a marketer for fabric paint companies, I would recommend using fabric paint instead of acrylic with fabric medium. Fabric paints give you cleaner lines and more even coverage. I use Jacquard brand paints. The little 2.5 oz pot goes a long way and they're pretty inexpensive. They also have a metallic line that I just love.
Good luck!

If you use bridges and cut them away after you apply the important parts of the stencil to the shirt everything should stay together.
Here's a good island/bridge tute:
Also, instead of drawing directly on the freezer paper I print out my stencil on regular paper and cut it out with freezer paper underneath. Its best to use a sharp exacto blade.
I hope this helps!
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Why did my stencil do this?? on: September 07, 2008 11:32:10 AM
I've had a lot of problems with acrylic and fabric medium. I would recommend using fabric paint, not the cheapo pen kind, the kind that comes in little 2.5 oz bottles for about $3-5 each. I've never had a problem with actual fabric paint, it also doesn't bleed as readily as I've found acrylic and medium do.
