Yet another THANKS for this tutorial.  I read it last night, and made my first stencil shirt this evening...  My wife now has her very own Pee Wee Herman shirt.   Grin  Now on to the next one...

I lost the shirt, and forgot to take a picture.  XD  I'll have to look through my massive piles to find it.

I just searched "freezer paper" in this catagory and bygolly I'm not the first one to think of this!!!!  Wink Oh well... maybe someone will read this and try it. At least now I know it works!  Roll Eyes

I don't know if this has been suggested before but I have an idea....
I know you can print on freezer paper with an inkjet printer (the matte side)
you just have to cut it  8 1/2 X 11 and make sure you put it in your printer correct side up!

So.... you print your stencil image on the freezer paper, cut it out and iron it onto your t-shirt (wax side down) it sticks to the fabric and is removable without any residue. Paint/spray/roll your medium on and when dry just peel the stencil off and wahlaa... you have a nice stencil job.  Huh

I'm making a t-shirt for my niece on Saturday (first try at stenciling)
If it turns out I'll post a pic.
If it doesn't I'll let ya know!  Cheesy

I used to print on freezer paper when I made miniature dolls, and iron on to muslin because I could sew right on the pattern line and not have to draw it out every time. It was a real time saver!

But I thought you could clean?  Cheesy Wink ziiiiiiing.

I am so excited to make my very own stencil-y goodness! I've never done this before, but methinks it will turn out mighty swell. The only thing close to this that I've done so far is use decal paper to iron stuff onto shtuff (which turns out badly after every washing), and those iron-on transfer pens.

I will have pics of my creations soon! Thanks so much to everyone for the great tute and info.  Grin

oh, that's fab! I am i a stencilly mood now Smiley You inspired me. Now I will share with you the first thought that came through my head upon reading the subject of this post:

Well, my telephone rang it would not stop,
It's President Kennedy callin' me up.
He said, "My friend, Bob, what do we need to make the country grow?"
I said, "My friend, John, Brigitte Bardot,
Anita Ekberg,
Sophia Loren."

-Bob Dylan, I Shall Be Free

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

im so excited! i just made the first stencil of my life that didnt fail. I tried a long time ago and the result was so discouraging ive been resisting even while browsing these boards. but i finally gave into the sophia loren siren song. and it WORKED. i tried freezer paper but for some reason it wouldnt stick to the shirt (i used the right side, because i ironed a sample piece onto my floor and it stuck there, but not on the fabric) so i just brushed the underside with glue stick very carefully and it worked perfectly. im waiting for it to dry so i can try it on and take a pic, but i just got so excited i had to post right away. i feel like ive birthed a baby or something, and you guys had to be the first to know. so yeah, pictures forthcoming and thank you for inspiring me!


Ok, so here it is. sorry its not so much counterculture, but if it bothers you just pretend its meant ironically. it might even be, im not sure. also, excuse my giant rack...

It looks really great!!

I just cut three stencils for use on one shirt (for my dad's birthday).  Waiting for paint to dry so I can layer another stencil on.
