Freezer Paper Stencils on Vintage Fabric

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.

The Supplies

 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?

    I have used freezer paper to stencil initials on tote bags to help personalize them… and a doilie as a stencil for a cute design as well (use spray glue to make it stick).

    Never tried using the freezer paper with the cricut though… you just opened a whole world of possibilities to me!

    I used my cricut to make freezer paper stencils for my sister's baby shower. I ironed the stencils onto a number of coordinating fabric squares. At the baby shower, guests painted the stencils. Then I turned the squares into a baby quilt.
