When I first started blogging, I shared pictures of a quilt that I made for my youngest brother. He had found some great vintage fabric for the back of the quilt.
I finally made a throw pillow with some of the left over fabric. Oh, this is for my bro too, he needs a pillow to go with the quilt, right?
Using my cricut, I cut out a stencil on freezer paper. This is the first time I’ve worked with freezer paper, and it’s fantastic! Then I ironed the stencil onto the fabric (plastic side down). I used Martha Stewarts new paints and fabric medium. I ended up applying one coat of paint, letting it dry and then applying a second. Then, I just peeled off the stencil. To set the paint, I ironed it once it was completely dry.
I think it turned out pretty fun. I’ve got lots of ideas for cute stenciling projects in my head now. I love learning and trying something new. Anyone else out there ever tried freezer paper stencils on fabric?
