it was a cold rainy day in san francisco. a perfect day to turn our apartment into an annex of santa’s work shop.
First matt & i worked on stenciling t-shirts using freezer paper for all our nephews.
We found pattern swe liked online at stencilry and spray paint stencils. matt sized them & printed them right on to the back of the freezer paper then i cut them out with an exacto knife. then just iron them on the t-shirt & dab the paint on.
we are really happy with the results though would stick to darker color paint on dark thick fabrics like this next time.
i was also asked to make another doll as a gift for a three year old. this time the doll needed to be blond with blue eyes.
i learned a lot between making this doll & my first. i sewed her together using the tissue paper trick that was left in my comments by terry & it made sewing this stretchy cotton jersey much easier. I also sewed the hair on this time with matching embroidery thread instead of sewing with the yarn. it was soooo much easier & i feel like the hair is really secure. i’ve half her first sweater so i’m finding these work up surprisingly quickly.
