that is AWESOME!
I couldnt even think about doing a project like this--the patience was NEVER there!
Is that ONE piece of stencil? And do you use like glue stick to keep it down there?

Thank you!  Goodness, no, that is not one stencil piece (I wish it was, it would have made my life easier.)  It's actually an even 20 pieces.  There's one piece that comprises the main square, the white sky, and the white grassy area to her right.  Then the entire woods on the left and the left-sided grassy area are all floating pieces, which I had to tack down separately.  Poor planning, but I was too devoted to the image to change it.

And no, it wasn't glue stick, though that's a good guess!  I use the freezer paper method, which means that I draw my image out on a piece of paper, tape it down on a cutting surface over a piece of freezer paper (you can find it in a grocery store with the Reynolds wrap, one side is paper and the other is wax paper,) and exacto knife cutout my image.  Then the wax paper side gets put face-down on the fabric and it gets ironed on.  The wax seals it temporarily to the fabric, making the stencil.  You can peel it off when it's all painted.  Smiley  Hope that helps!

The bag looks fantastic!  Great job!  I love the image.

Did you try opening the bag up to iron?  Depending on the size, I sometimes open the shirt or bag up and put it over the end of the ironing board, or some other surface that can fit inside (like a piece of cardboard), to iron the paper on, to avoid some of those folds and bunches, and get a more flat surface for good adhesion.

Great stencil! Looks like it took a lot of time and attention to detail when cutting that out!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
