personalizing a white t-shirt – freezer paper stencil

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Did anyone stay up late watching the Grammy’s last night? I’m not one to watch award shows but I try not to miss the Grammy’s. Especially with Sir Paul McCartney playing twice during the show and Adele sweeping the awards. Totally worth being a little exhausted this morning.
Freezer paper stencils are now my “go-to” way to personalize a gift for the little ones in my life. One of our little loves turned a year old this weekend so I wanted to make her a little extra something for her gift.

Every girl needs a nice white t-shirt in her wardrobe but even at 1, it doesn’t hurt to spruce it up to show her personality. She is a sweetheart so a shirt with a heart pocket was perfect.

I used my Silhouette to cut out some hearts and her name on freezer paper. This is so ridiculously easy. If you have never tried this before and want to please do, you won’t be disappointed.

I’ve been using my Martha Stewart paints with the fabric medium she sells to paint these. They work really well and from what I’ve been told, hold up well to washing if you follow the instructions for preparing and setting them.

The t-shirt had a cute heart pocket that I wanted to highlight, so I used one stencil on it and then used the stitching as the guide to fill in the rest of the pocket.

I matched up the shirt with a pair of jeans for this special little girl in our lives.

If you celebrate Valentine’s Day with your kids or a special someone in your life, are you ready for tomorrow? Have you tried using a freezer paper stencil yet?
PS – Martha Stewart and Silhouette have no idea who I am or why I’m writing about their products. So ┬áplease understand, I am not being compensated in any way for this post. They are just the products I used and loved so I thought I would share :)
