1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Ideas for a little girl with everything & a craft-hating mother--4 PICS ON PG 5 on: November 21, 2007 06:54:44 AM
What you need to do is stop trying to appeal to the mother. Think of something that the little girl will absolutely love and make it for her. If she is a girly girl make something so pink and girly it hurts your eyes and she'll love it. Surely if the little girl is happy, the mother can't be displeased.

this is awesome, but i have a question. did you iron the freezer paper to the material you used? and did you use cardstock or some kind of matboard? last time i tried freezer paper + cardstock, the freezing paper ruined my cardstock when i pulled it off. enlighten me! Tongue
I made the wooden frame and then stretched two layers of an old cream colored bedsheet over the frame and stapled it taut. then I put some boards down on the floor the same height as the depth of the inside so when I ironed I would be able to push a little harder and put a towel over the boards and then the frame over that. Ironed everything on (which took FOREVER!) The painting part took literally minutes. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if it doesn't. I two have put my iron on some materials that were never meant to be ironed. Messy! Hehe

I don't have access to freezer paper so it takes a really long time to adhere all the little pieces in lettering and whatnot.
where are you from? have you tried ordering online?

Love it, um but what is WPS? Im such a newb.
WP=Word Processor like Word Perfect, Microsoft Word or I use a free downloadable one OpenOffice.org Writer

I just meant that you can create stencils in your Word Processor you don't need any fancy graphic programs Smiley

The stencils came from www.stencilry.org
I think the chimpanzee came from the animals category and the second one came from either under the people category and then under Jon Cusack or under the movies and under the movie Say Anything. Thanks for looking Smiley

Boyfriend said he wanted a T-shirt. I told him to pick whatever he wanted and I would make it. Boyfriend picked Chimp. Picture looks a little weird because it's not laying completely flat and the camera flash makes the black look a little washed out. It's not, I swear.
Hope you like.......

Oh yeah and if you feel like you want to 'Say Anything', Lloyd Dobler. Fyi: There was still a piece of freezer paper on the inside when I photographed it if you're wondering what the stiff square thing is....

Here's the original......

I don't think I mentioned but it's a picture of my sister and her boyfriend and his brother and was a housewarming present for them.

I'm laying on the ground and they are leaning over me and it is the roof of a yurt in the background. I'll upload the original photo later!
Thanks Smiley

I just started stenciling about a week ago. I'm using freezer paper and did a few from stencilry.org just to try. I was planning on getting a copy of Photoshop so that I could start making my own but read somewhere that you can make them in WPs so I tried it and voila! It worked! And it was easy......
Anyway, I took a photograph that I took last summer and made a stencil from it. I always read people posting in threads about how they won't cut a stencil that has floating pieces and they bridge everything. This stencil was funny because I don't think you can call it a stencil as every piece almost was floating. Regardless, freezer paper rocks, I smothered the paint on without being careful in the least and the lines are as clean as anything. My camera sucks. I swear the pictures don't do it justice. Oh and the the whole thing is on about a 2 feet by 1 1/2 foot frame that I made and stretched fabric over with a staple gun.   

I wish I had a better camera.....

I know what's going to happen. I'll tell ya. I'll tell you what happens. You smallen (I know it's not a word but go with it) the sleeves so it's more fitted and then when he wears T-shirts they will get all bunchy under the sleeve and uncomfortable and he'll curse the day he ever cursed the day. In all seriousness though, too tight sleeves suck for layering. Let's face it, boys are dumb sometimes. The hoodie is amazing as you already know. By the way, I really liked that you described him as (not a direct quote but something like) "a narrow sort of man" Fantabulous.
