I was ambitious this year and made all my presents!  After much adventuring around town, I found some freezer paper, and got to work!
For my brother: Gollum (bleach stencilled using freezer paper)
I did his first, because his was least important to me, and I'm glad I did! I used the wrong kind of spray bottle (oops) so the bleach bled through the freezer paper making it kinda ugly
but He still thought it was cool

For my boyfriend, I made 3 shirts (one of his requests was shirts and ties, he meant the dress variety, but I changed that one)
First up: Neville Longbottom, his favourite Harry Potter Character ( bleach stencilled using freezer paper)

Unfortunatley in my excitement I stupidly forgot to put cardboard inside the shirt, so it bled through. I came up with a solution though, to hide it, I reverse stencilled LONGBOTTOM on the back of the shirt, so that people wouldn't have to ask him a million times who it was

Second: Bacon is my favourite vegetable. It really is his favourite vegetable. This one is done in fabric crayon. I printed and re-size colouring pages, then I cut them out, and taped them to the inside of the shirt, I put the shirt over a light box, and traced them in pencil, then  coloured them with the fabric crayons. It was tricky, but it got a bit better when I used an embroidery hoop to stretch out the fabric.

And last but least, my favourite (and his too!) the Gimil shirt (bleach stencilled using freezer paper)

The pictures are all thumbnails, in an attempt to keep the post smaller, the actual pictures are rotated, I'm sorry I can't figure out how to rotate the thumbnails! It's my first project post.

Turned out really nice, I know he loved them.  The Gimli one rocks!

Given a cape, tiara and a strong cup of coffee, yeah, I could rule the world.
