ok, this is my first post in this section, i just learned how to stencil using freezer paper- It's very addictive...

I found this fabric while i was raiding my mum's fabric stash, she wanted me to use this fabric for something, but i'm not really the sort who wants to wear clothing (in this case a skirt) with cute little children around the hemline, to remedy the... quaintness , i stenciled an image from edward gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies on the front of the skirt

this is the first one I did, it's john waters strangling a flamingo (though hopefully you can tell that on your own) I'm not especially happy with it, and as you can tell, i was not in an ironing sort of mood when i photographed it-

and last, the lovely marty feldman as Igor in Young Frankenstein- this is also on a skirt, in this case the fabric came from a hideous sheet that we inherited from my grandparents

ok, that's it for now, thanks for looking!

Leave it to a craftster to stencil logical allusions to Aerosmith and Young Frankenstein on the same article of clothing! The John Waters one rocks too. This cracks me up. I love it. Great job on all the stuff!

These are awesome!

I especially love the John Waters one.  That's amazing for your first stencil!

Hi! I'm not sure if I'm the sort who wants to wear clothing with cute children printed on either, but I like it anyway! The details are great! Way to go!

Kudos for the Gorey shirt. That book is very eerie/amusing, perfect for a t-shirt!
