Freezer Paper Stencil Shirt

I'm so excited that one of my FAVORITE blogs I Am Momma Hear Me Roar
Is having a Boys T-shirt Contest!!

I Am Momma Hear Me Roar 
This contest gave me the perfect opportunity to create a shirt for my son
and she even provides the perfect tutorial for freezer paper stenciling 
Just what I needed since I don't own a sewing machine or one of those fancy Cricut or Silhouette machines.....YET
 I must be living in a cave because I have NEVER seen this done......I watched her great video and had no problem creating the cutest shirt!

 I used a .50 cent thrift store shirt, freezer paper, iron, fabric paint, craft knife, printed image from internet, burlap and wonder under.

I printed off my words and placed it under the freezer paper.
I used a craft knife to cut out the words.
I didn't have any navy so I mixed black and blue together 
to get the perfect navy that matched the collar of the shirt.
Ironed the freezer paper shiny side down and painted the words.

Next I cut out a Dino image out of burlap and Wonder-Under.
(Wonder-Under is an adhesive web that turns any fabric into a fusible fabric.
I purchased it at Wal-Mart for $2 a yard.)

I ironed on the burlap Dino applique and painted a few dots.
Then I used the same freezer paper technique to cut out 
the rest of the words and painted.
And I know the perfect BIG BOY-a-saurus for this shirt.....
if I only could get a good picture of him:-)

Check out all the places I party!

Girlfriend, you SO need a personal electronic cutter (that somehow just sounds wrong). It would make this process SO easy!
Fondly, Tami
