Urban Threads, love the tutorial, very nicely done, and your designs, WOW!.  Do you have any tips or tricks on using that fabric spray paint?  I used bright yellow on a royal blue shirt, which I realize may be problem #1.  I had to use so much of the paint that it leaked through the freezer paper (not under the stencil edges, but through the paper itself).  Eventually, I ended up using both spray and non-spray paint, but the area around my stenciled image definitely got colored too.[/s]

Yeah, sometimes using a light paint on a dark shirt means you have to go over it many times, but it's still possible.  First, when building up the layers of paint, let each later dry completely between coatings.  It may take awhile, but it should help the shirt from becoming saturated and the paint from leaking through the freezer paper.  Another tip I've heard when you really need to go to town with the paint is to iron another layer of freezer paper on the inside of your shirt, on the other side of the stencil.  That helps lock the fabric between two layers and should leak less.  I hope that helps!

Thank you!  I was in a bit of a hurry when I made my shirt (like 3 hours before the game) and ended up drying it with a hair dryer.  I still got quite a lot of comments about it.  DH was very proud of my shirt.

i love that shirt so cute but i especially love your tutorial!  Ive been wanting to try stenciling with freezer paper.  I figured I could just wing it and see what happens but sometimes that really discourages me if it doesnt work out the first time.  Im going to the store tonight to get spray fabric paint and then Im gonna try this out! THANKS SO MUCH!!!  Grin

Wow!  You cut that all out!  Lots of small details.  I haven't tried the freezer paper yet, though I keep hearing it's the way to go!

I'm loving the stripes and your stencil! Was the material of your shirt 100% cotton? I've been wanting to stencil a hoodie for my friend's birthday, but I can only find the ones that are 50/50 blend of cotton and polyester, and I don't know how the acrylics and textile medium will end up on a blended fabric.
