 September 11: Freezer Paper Stenciling on a T-Shirt - Stacy taught this deceptively easy stencil technique during several kids summer camps. She saw such amazing results that she is now sharing it with us adults. Yay!!   We will  learn how to print a custom design onto a tee-shirt by tracing and cutting out paper.  How much easier could it get?? You must bring a 100% cotton tee or another cotton item (any color is OK), an x-acto knife and cutting mat if you have it, and a design or idea you would like to transfer. It should be black and white and not too complicated. Doing a google search for (blank) silhouette is a good place to start. Call me if you need help finding something.   $25
