My local craft store has these transfer papers that might work well.  I hate cutting out freezer paper stencils and with the transfer paper all you have to do is print your design, lay it over the transfer paper and trace.  The pressure from tracing the design deposits a washable chalk onto the fabric which can give you a guideline to paint into.  I don't know how well that would work depending on the type of fabric you're using but it's worth a shot.  If you're really artistic and the fabric allows you could freehand the design onto the fabric with marking pencil and hand paint it, I've done that with decent results in the past as well.

 Edit: The paper comes in long rolls of specific colors -- they were in the art section at Pat Catan's, but I hear Michael's might have them as well.
