My friend and fellow crafter introduced me to stenciling with Freezer paper.  I am now sooo hooked and obsessed. It's one of my favorite crafts to do now.

Most of my designs come from UrbanThreads or internet pictures.  I trace them onto Freezer paper, iron and then paint away!  Several of these are from a swap I just did (Another Old Fashioned Swap) and others are for friends or family.




My friend Lindy321 brought me a picture of a sparrow tatoo and I free handed the picture onto freezer paper. Swear it took 4 hours to cut out!


My girlfriend has declared 2010 the "year of the Bad-Ass" so had to make her shirts in honor of Wink

This one really isn't a stencil project but it went as a gift with the other shirts Smiley

ALL COMMENTS WELCOME!  Sometimes I have a small bleed problem around the lettering any suggestions?

Great job!  In my experience, you can avoid bleeding by ironing, ironing, ironing!  Seriously, I iron my stencils like 5 times over.  It also depends on the fabric.  I almost always have bleeding if I'm working on canvas.  The stencils just don't adhere very well.

Those look fantastic!  My favorites are the robot and the pirates.  I keep meaning to try freezer paper stencils but never get around to it.

I took your advice and have been an ironing fool and have noticed a differenceif i iron a LOT of times.
Thanks!
