Kookie the socks and scarf Rocks

I love the roller derby patches

Wow must be hard coping with so many allergies, my OH is lactose intolerant and it's unbelievable the amount of stuff that includes dairy...Like crisps and we're not even talking the cheese ones.

I have completed a Brand New to me Crafting Technique - Freezer Paper Stencil!!! Grin
Last night after work, I had a search through google images to look for something to stencil. It didn't actually take me long to find something I loved.
For the next hour or so I sat hunched over my table slowly cutting out all the fiddley little bits and thinking that maybe freezer paper stencils aren't the thing for me. Seriourly I almost gave up, heck I could probably paint the design free hand quicker.
Anyway I finally finished cutting  and proceeded to break out the iron and attach the stencil.
I then mixed up some textile medium and some black acrylic paint.
Then the hunt for a sponge to apply the paint. I found one in a box of kid's painting stuff and sponged the paint onto the stencil.
Then it was time for dinner.
When I came back I removed the freezer paper and ended up with this....

OK, it was so worth it. I love how well it turned out and how straight and unfuzzy the lines are. I did a little touching up with a sharpie and now both my OH and DD want one too.
Will be hunting out some more plain t-shirts ti stencil up.

That shirt looks great. It's much better than my first freezer paper stencil attempt. Great job.

Oooo!  Nice freezer paper stenciling!  Yay Kalvin and Hobbs!!  I love making freezer paper stenciled shirts.  It is a little tedious, but they are always worth the work in the end.

The freezer paper stencil looks amazing, and doubly so because 1) that is not an easy stencil to cut! All those fiddly little lines, and 2) it was your first time?Huh Great job!

I Love the Calvin and Hobbes t-shirt, Calvin and Hobbes are my fianc's favorite so I inevitably end up crafting something Calvin and Hobbes related for him for holidays and special occasions.

I am currently working on finishing crocheting a Hobbes ami, also packing because we found a house to rent and will be moving in less then a month so things are very crazy here

Love the socks, the hoop, the inchie book, the drawings, and the stenciling! I love freezer paper stencils!

Tomorrow I'm planning on trying to finish the hat I'm knitting and bake Nutella cheesecake brownies!

I think I'll have to try the freezer paper stenciling too. I'm trying to figure out how to get a quick, easy poem written across a quilt. My options are hand-made iron-on fabric letters or stencils. Unless anybody else has a better idea?

hgddm: The donut recipe is here http://wheat-free-meat-free.blogspot.com/2011/09/gluten-free-chocolate-donuts-with.html
In case anyone is corn sensitive, they can replace the xantham gum with guar gum 1:1 ratio. I also modified this recipe to be for mini donuts, each donut takes 1 tsp batter and cook for 7 minutes a tray.

zombiecazz: I'm going to sound like such a newb... but what is OH? Corn and dairy are the bane of my existence lol But I've been dealing with the allergies for the past ten years so I'm used to it! It helps that my lovely boy is an amazing gourmet cooking genius also Wink

Also, I'm totally proud of your freezer paper stencil! That is brilliant for your first time Cheesy I use butcher's paper on everything that I don't silk screen and I know how long that would have taken. Great job!

Nutella cheesecake brownies? Those would kill me but the boy would explode with glee.. lol Good luck!
