One of the best things about my job is that they give you the whole week off between Christmas and New Year's. With the blizzard and general coldness I wasn't really in the mood to go outside so I worked on a whole lot of projects.
I'd been planning on trying this striped shirt project, using painter's tape and fabric paint, but then I realized that I didn't have any tape. I was so set on making something that I turned to the freezer paper, which yielded something even better.
I cut out strips of the paper, purposely leaving ragged edges and uneven lines, and placed them on the shirt, right up to the collar.
After ironing the strips on, I cut out a few triangles and played around a bit with where I wanted to put them before ironing them on as well.
Then I applied several coats of fabric paint using a foam brush. I purposely left the ends a bit rough.
I had such a hard time waiting for it to dry before peeling up the paper. Here's a little more info about making freezer paper stencils.
