  10. Jennifer Dawn-

  11. What a darling idea! I'll be linking on Thursday--I'd love for you to stop by! ;)

  12. maybe i'm the only one, but i'm completely confused! i love this though and i want to give it a try. i'm just not understanding "inside"...? so, do i just use the cut out like a sticker? just paint it and glue it on? how did it go from being roughly painted to being beautiful? please, somebody, help me!

    1. Maybe this will explain things a little better. :) I drew my daughter's side profile on a piece of white paper. I cut it out needing the outside part around the silhouette as the stencil. I used spray adhesive to make it sticky enough to secure to the shirt. Then I painted with a fabric paint and pulled the stencil off. Let me know if you still have questions.
