Well, I'm definitely no Nikki McClure with the X-acto knife, but I think we did pretty well for our first go at the freezer paper stenciling.
There are tons of tutorials online so I won't even bore you with the details. I will say though that you should definitely try this at home. As a little Mother's Day present to myself I ordered some textile paints from Dharma Trading Co. and was so pleased with how soft they turned out on the fabric.
Guthrie chose a pattern straight from The Artful Parent's post about stenciling. I'll explain copyright to her when she's 4 ok? After some serious trepidation about getting paint on her hands she figured out a way to hold the sponge and did a great job!
Here's how hers turned out:
I did a onesie for Laithe and I think it looks pretty good if I do say so myself.
And will we do more? Uh, I believe I uttered the phrase 'how about we just do bath night tomorrow?' to Guthrie as I was working on the onesie.
I'm sure there will be more to see as we spend some time at home waiting for dad to pass his kidney stone. Good times. :)
