It was my moms birthday and I wasn't sure what to make for her...she loves the outdoors and I knew she would like something to put out in your yard.....so I saved up some different sizes of cans and came up with this:

13  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Star blanket on: September 06, 2007 12:21:25 PM
Help!  I am in need of a tutorial EASY tutorial that explains how to make a star blanket.  I just got one through a swap from an angel (thanks so much Knichole) and now I HAVE to learn to make one!  I love stars and think it is so so so awesome!  I found a few tutorials through google but they don't make sense to me.  Does anyone have an easy one? 
14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My DHs new Master Chief shirt!! on: September 01, 2007 07:05:11 AM
I was inspired by this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=160940.0

and created my hubby a new shirt! 

He loves it.  It took me some time to cut out all the little bitty pieces, but it was worth it.

Now a question for the more experienced stencilers (since this was only my second one)  Does is work to laminate the front of the stencil before cutting to try to help save it.  This stencil had so many tiny areas I couldn't keep it in tact for another shirt.....but after the fact thought I should have laminated it before hand....would that work?  that would still leave the waxy side to the shirt.........

Hey all!  I am going to be doing my first stencil here soon...I have a stencil, bought the freezer paper today....and while at walmart decided to look at the paint.....but got lost.  What is the best type of paint for a shirt?  What won't fade out right away?
