The Hoppo Bumpo Stencil Along - 2nd Attempt

My sister found some cheap ($1) size one t-shirts at Target last week so this is my second attempt at freezer paper stencilling.
I've just realised that this photo looks like an advertisment for New Zealand, but NZ is not for New Zealand....it's N for Noah and Z for Zane. It's going to be a least 6 months before they fit..but oh well!

The paint is a little bit patchy as I didn't use enough, but the edges are nice and crisp again.

If you need any extra information about freezer paper stencilling so that you can try it yourself, head on over to Hoppo Bumpo and read the stencilling posts. There's a wealth of information and links and comparisons....

And don't forget to enter my Blogtoberfest fabric giveaway...I'm drawing a winner tonight!

And don't forget to check out the rest of the Blogtoberfest giveaways on my side bar!

Wow, New Zealand is looking fabulous. I can't wait to see the 2 boys side by side.

You've done a great job for two very lucky boys! If you can't wait for them to grow into them, you can rotate them, still have N&Z and make pillow cases!
So where's this secret source of $1 tshirts? I think I could applique a bit!

Nicola said...

Those t-shirts look really cool. I think a feel an urge to try it myself coming on. Thanks for letting us all see your work.

They turned out pretty cool! If I didn't know any better it looks like NZ to, maybe put the other way round so it looks like ZN?

You've done a super job! Your edges are crisper than mine ("darlin', your edges..." well, you get it). I'm sure that the young fellas will love these t-shirts.
