a couple of gal pals & i got together a couple weeks ago for the first (of hopefully many) “not your mama’s craft night”. instead of the basic sewing or scrap booking, we are trying to venture outside the craft box… share ideas, try something new & hopefully meet a friend or two, in the process. this month’s installment had us making freezer paper stencils. ridiculously easy, seriously fun, & very addicting! basically all you do is draw your design on the non-waxy side of the paper & cut it out using an exacto knife. then place the freezer paper waxy side down on your fabric & iron. viola! instant stencil. paint (using fabric paint of course!), let it dry & then peel away the stencil. most people would be finished at this point, but i couldn’t stop thinking how much cuter my tees would be with a little added umph! so, i headed to the sewing machine for a little extra embellishment. who knew freezer paper could provide hours of entertainment.
