I’m in love with freezer paper. Seriously…N. LUV. While re-reading The Creative Family, I stumbled upon her instructions on how to make freezer paper stencils. And, by positioning a stencil JUST SO on an old t-shirt, you can make it “new” by covering a stain. PERFECT. I grabbed one of Owen’s white (off-white? cream?) t-shirts last night, cut out a skateboard image, and went to town. I will post pics of it when I get home and take a picture of him. haha
I, on the other hand, had this great little silhouette of an old-school couple that I was dying to use on something. Nothing seemed right though. It seemed too busy for a painting on some wood, so it sat in a drawer I had. And sat. And sat. And then last night, it became a stencil on my plain jane light blue skirt from Old Navy. I’ve had this skirt for about a year, but I went online to Old Navy and found you can still get them for about $15. What a bargain! So comfy. It’s t-shirt material, so that’s also an added bonus.
Here is the finished product. Next time I make a shirt/skirt/tote/etc, I’ll take pics and write a tutorial. It’s seriously not hard at all. I was intimidated, but glad I took the plunge. So easy!
I asked Hubs what he thought about Owen’s shirt and my skirt. He said he loved the skateboard for Owen (duh. I’m awesome.) As for my skirt, his words were, “Um…it’s very 1950’s.” Thanks, Hon. I love your honesty.
