|Stencil Supplies: Logo/Words, Freezer Paper, Exacto Knife|
|1) Cut out design with your exacto blade.|
|2) Trace the stencil you just created onto |
the non-shiny side of the freezer paper
|3) Cut out design on freezer paper. |
(* You can avoid this double cutting and just print your design on freezer paper in the first place, but I wanted to have a stencil for future use.)
|5) Iron your design on to your fabric, shiny side down. Press it well to insure there are no free edges.|
(*I ironed the cutouts onto canvas, to get extra use out of my freezer paper!)
|5) Same as previous. Iron on your stencil!|
|7) Paint over your stencils.|
|8) Before you paint on thinner (tee-shirt-like) material be sure to put a cardboard sheet in the middle of the shirt, to avoid bleeding.|
|9) Paint away!|
10) Let paint dry for a few hours until it is completely dry,I used a blow dryer to speed up the process!
|11) Once paint is dry, peel away the freezer paper stencil.|
|11) Peel some more!|
|12) Lay a piece of fabric over your design and lightly iron, to seal in your design.|
|13) Sew up your bag if need be!|
