I know I've said it before, but this is my favorite thing of all that I have made (and I really mean it this time)! Not because it looks so good or turned out so great, but because of all the fun it gave!
I have tons of freezer paper that I use for appliqueing, but I had never tried stenciling with it. When Jennifer talked to me about wanting t-shirts for all the girls at Jordyn's party, I though it might be a good idea to try it.
I used my Cameo and cut the words out on freezer paper. I was a little worried, but as you can see, it cut perfectly. I ironed the freezer paper to the shirt with the shiny side down.
I used 2 parts of paint to 1 part of Textile Medium.
Then just paint it on. When it's dry, pull the freezer paper off. The one hint I have for you is to be sure to iron all the parts of the freezer paper, not just the edges. Oh, and be sure to save your little parts after you cut the stencil out. Like the middle of the O and R and D..., you need to iron those on, also.
It's done and looks all neat and folded, right? Wrong. It's frozen! Jennifer had a game at the party where she froze all the shirts and the girls had to get them "unfroze" and put them on to win.
Let the fun begin!!
See Jordyn standing way over there on the side of the house? That's because her Papa told her to go and put the shirt in the water on the water slide!
Yep, we all did!
This really is harder than it looks, but...
so much fun!
Here's the funny part, it was 105 degrees that day and those little girls are shivering!
I link to these parties every week.
