flower t-shirt {freezer paper stencil}

Last month my sister-in-law gave me freezer paper and some different colours of fabric paint so I could get started on projects using freezer paper stencils. I am recovering from a crazy month & a serious crafting rut. But I finally gave the freezer paper thing a try last week- and I don't know why I didn't try sooner! I just love how easy it all is and how endless the possibilities are!!

My first project was pretty simple..... a t-shirt for my daughter...




My supplies:

-freezer paper
-pink fabric paint, foam brush, and disposable plate (that I used as my paint tray)
-exacto knife & cutting mat and scissors
-die cut image of a daisy




I started with my plain white t-shirt ($4 from Walmart).














I have a bunch of die cuts from years ago in my scrapbook stash, I found one that I wanted to use as the stencil image for the shirt.





Then traced the image onto the dull side of the freezer paper.















Then I cut the image out using my exacto knife. Then ironed the image onto the shirt (shiny side down.) It's pretty cool how that works!














I put some of the freezer paper inside the shirt so the paint wouldn't bleed through. Then I painted away! I used 2 coats.





Once dry, I peeled away the freezer paper.










And then I dressed my little girl in her new shirt!














I seriously can't wait to get a bunch more solid-coloured t-shirts so I can get busy making more. My mind is spinning with ideas!





Thanks Paige for getting me addicted to another crafting area! ;)
