This week I visited the Patina Market in Pleasant Grove. It was so fun to see all the unique designs that crafty people can come up with. This little boy's red shirt caught me eye. It's made by RadSeams. Tess has a birthday party to go to today, and I thought I would try my hand at freezer paper stenciling. I had a few ideas of fun shirts to make for the birthday boy. When I saw this shirt, and the price was a steal, I had to get it.
When they heard that I was buying the shirt for a birthday present, they gift wrapped it for free.
Patina Market is a total score. If you are in that neighborhood you should definitely stop by. Go check out their website.
I was still anxious to try out the stenciling. I have had a roll of freezer paper in my craft room staring at me for way too long. I used the quick and easy tutorial from Made. It really is so easy. The hardest part was getting the kids to decide what they wanted on their shirts.
NO, I take that back. The hardest part was telling Tess she could only paint in certain areas. She is always so excited to help out. I also learned if your shirt is dark, you need a lot more pain than you think. It took me forever to try and figure out what part to cut out of the I love you sign. It all worked out pretty well. I think the next go around will be even better.
