|Stenciled "Birthday Boy" and the number "1"|
Well, we had Finn's birthday party on Saturday and the weather was great. Everyone seemed to enjoy the day! As promised, here are the shirts that I made. The stenciling a Tigger sillouette idea didn't go so well. My test looked ok to me, but then when I showed my husband, he couldn't tell what it was, so I decided to play it safe and go with an iron-on Tigger. I still wanted to try the stenciling idea with freezer paper and fabric paint, so I went simple and just stuck with letters.

I really enjoyed the stenciling and fabric paint. I can definitely see trying more of that and am adding it to the list. But, I think I will start to try to clear off my work table and focus on finishing two summer skirts that I am converting from dresses that were too small for me...I digress. First, more birthday posts to come!
