So this is my first ever freezer paper stencil for my partner, thehappycrochetchic, in the Whedonverse swap.

First was the Jayne bag. I love how the hat came out.

And heres the other side of the bag. I was a bit concerned because I wanted the letters to look really perfect, and I was glad that they stayed really crisp, even when it seemed like the freezer paper wasnt completely sticking down. I am super in love with this bag and have to make myself one when I feel up to cutting out all those little pieces again.

And heres the sleep mask I made for my partners Buffy side. This is probably the smallest I will ever go with letters. It was really hard to get the little pieces inside the a and e letters to stay in place while ironing.

Over all, I am super-duper pleased with my first foray into freezer paper stenciling. Although its really time consuming to cut out all the little pieces, and it stinks if one piece goes missing, its a nice repetitive and calming craft. I cant wait do to more. I already have a bunch of ideas for future projects using freezer paper. I just wish you could reuse the stencils.

Jayne is a girl's name.

"It turns out they do make hats in my size. They are called "BUCKETS" and they sell them at the hardware store."

it took me a few days to even see the keep calm and carry vera on the back, when i took it out of the box it was on the hat side and i thought it was only one sided,,, i hung it up and when i used it i noticed the other side! DUH so it was like a second happy surprise! You did an amazing job on it, it's so crisp and perfect!

Fantabulous! I don't know which side of the bag I would keep out for the world to see.
