Well, inspired by the Mary Poppins bag challenge (which I'm sure I don't have the time or sewing skills to enter) which then spurred my idea for a swap (but that's another story) I knew I had to make something with Mary Poppins on it!  - I have a slight obsession with her you see... hahaha.  Anyway, viola, craftster semi-instant gratification (aka, a couple hours)  I think it took me longer to pick the image for the stencil and make it into a stencil than it took me to cut it out and paint it.  Haha, well anyway, I'm extremely happy with it!  Except around the handles of her bag because I had to freehand those (dern bridges) and they bled a tad.  But still, I'm quite happy.  Now enough of me blabbing.  Pictures:

neither is a terribly true color, it's plain ole black on heather grey.

It's a bit plain though so I was thinking of adding something/embellishing it more.  Any ideas?

Or perhaps stencilling some text on the bottom or back?  No... I don't think I have the patience to cut out Supercallifragilisticexpialidocious.  xDD  but maybe... who knows?

ahh, that'd adorable. do you have a link to the image you used to start with to make the stencil?

what about 'a spoonful of sugar?' and.. a word to the wise. handwriting is WAY faster to cut out (IMHO, anyway!)

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best

That's awesome. I really like the placement.
Mary Poppins is one of my favourites too! The amount of times I watched that when I was little.....sheesh.
I'm planning to stencil the dancing penguins on a bag soon.

Oh and I think it looks perfect as it is!

Thanks so much everyone!  I've never tried cutting out handwriting before... I've only done text once actually, and it was pretty big block letters.  Ah well, maybe your right, maybe it is practically perfect in every way and I won't add anything Wink hahaha

I made the stencil from this picture:

Well, not that one exactly, I think the one I found was a bit bigger, but not much.  I was actually thinking of making the stencil tricolored, but I decided I liked the all black better anyway.  Anyway, I wouldn't mind uploading and posting the finished stencil as long as you only use it for personal pleasure and you show me what you make from it! Wink

(To make it I just cut her out of the picture, resized her and smoothed her edges out- A LOT!  Of course, then I decided I wanted her two inches bigger and she got blurry again hahaha.  But all that gets fixed in the cutting Smiley)

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I like it just the way it is but it might be fun to stencil some gothic / victorian looking buildings along the bottom if you still want more embellishments.
