A while back I showed stenciling with freezer paper, and created some lovely bag with a bamboo stencil on them. I also made a cute bag with gold bars and gold studs.
The bags turned out lovely, but I really wanted stencils that were more durable. I found this great tutorial http://www.instructables.com/id/D.I.Y.-Screen-Printing/?ALLSTEPS showed how to use embroidery hoops, Mod Podge, and your own drawing to make more permanent stencils.
So following the easy steps I created these great stencils with my new fantasy animal, the Jacalope.
I made a couple of great bags with the stencils. First a tote bag with a golden Jacalope:
Then a silver Jacalope on Ultra Suede Boho bag:
And the custom bag I created for my friend, Marie, LP/ Vinyl tote bag:
The Mod Podge was so easy to use, I used the matte version since I needed only simple Mod Podge.
I love now having more permanent stencils to use over and over again, Check back for more of my stenciling adventures…
