my new obsession…

You know I’m up for all personalized, handmade things and stenciling a onesie with my baby’s initial was an idea I had for a long time. When I finally decided to do it, I went the “freezer paper” route. Oh my! I didn’t know what I was getting myself into.

I never anticipated how easy it’d be and how obsessed I’d become! The process it’s very simple: a. Choose a design, b. Print or draw design in freezer paper (you can find it at the supermarket), c. Cut design with a X-acto knife (of course a Silhouette machine, would make your and my life easier), d. Iron stencil on onesie, t-shirt, or whatever you want to create, e. Paint with fabric paint (I used this one and has held up pretty good after three washes so far), f. Let dry and finally g. Peel stencil. Being the impatient person I am, I usually skip step f, which I don’t recommend. There are plenty of tutorials on the web, just google “freezer paper stencils” and you’ll find many.

I made an initial onesie for my boy and one with the map of Peru. I also made two girly ones for my cousin’s baby girl. And I’m already planning on making a stenciled birthday t-shirt for L, and a Halloween one for G. The mister has asked for one, too. I’ve spending many hours thinking about new designs (hours I should spend sleeping!). I’m telling you I’m obsessed. Freezer paper stenciling is my new thing.

Happy Friday everyone!!!
