So many of you have asked how I do the shirts I make. So I will try to explain fully here. I will also update my blog this week and post the link. I start with an image I like. Pumpkin stencils work awesome and can be found all over the Internet. I print it out on paper or directly to freezer paper which has been cut to fit in my printer. Freezer paper is an awesome discovery. You can find it in the tinfoil/plastic wrap section of any grocery store. I got mine at Walmart. Freezer paper has a dull side and a shiny side. You want to print on the dull side. After u have printed your image then you will cut it out with an xacto knife. If you are not printing directly to the freezer paper just place the image printed on regular paper on top of the freezer paper, secure with paper clips to cut. I do this on a sewing cutting board. I have cut up to 4 pieces at once but you do have to press harder to do this. After the image has been cut out you are going to iron the freezer paper stencil to the shirt shiny side down. I use an iron on the hottest/cotton setting with no steam. It does not take much to get it to stick. Make sure fine details are stuck well. If you miss place it you can peal it off and move it. After it cools, I place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt to keep the paint from going all the way through the shirt to the back. I then use Tulip Soft fabric paint, squeeze some out on a paper plate and apply with a sponge brush. After it dries I peel the freezer paper off and the image is complete. I have washed out shirts I made in January now about 10 times and no problems. I get my tshirts at Michaels, Joanne's or online from Jiffyshirt.com. Cutting out the stencil is the most time consuming part, the rest takes only a few minutes. Please ask me any questions you have. I am also willing to email you the designs I have used. My next adventure will be making our shirts for our May visit to Star Wars Weekend and Flower/Garden Festival :)

I have used a cricut and disney cartridges to do the same, much quicker and capable of intricate designs. I also cut by hand, though. - bluefairy  643.3 #289 10:18PM
So if it's quicker...you can finish that shirt right? :) - veronica619  517.7 #375 10:33PM

Yay thank you so much!! - ccmom  187.5 #43 4:38PM
You make it sound so easy! I can't wait to see what you do for Star Wars Weekends/Flower & Garden! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1067.8 #3 4:42PM
It is easy if u can cut with an xacto knife. That's really the hardest part. - mzdisnee  504.3 #15 6:05PM
Thank you for the directions! - luvthemouse  213.5 #1751 6:02PM
Awesome thanks for how to and pics! - txdisneymomma  116.2 #64 6:57PM
Will definitely try this!! So, taking the Cars example that's pictured, what part do you cut out? How do you do the fine lines, like the thin line on the front of the car? - mrsincredible  1051.8 #4 7:17PM
OK, so I see now after studying the pic which part you cut out. Are the dots and fine lines hard to cut out? - mrsincredible  1051.8 #4 7:20PM
No not really. Using a very sharp xacto knife and just stay on the line. I would say practice a few times. You could always do thin lines freehand. When I made my sons Oswald shirt I did the pants outline freehand but the one I just made, pink shirt with Oswald, I just cut the template out. - mzdisnee  504.3 #15 7:26PM
That's so cool, thank you for showing us how. I can't wait to try it! I have 8 of us to match up for our trip in June. πŸ‘Š - mrsincredible  1051.8 #4 7:28PM
I'm just not crafty I won't even try. - 5disneylovers  985.9 #5 7:41PM

That's very cool! I work for my in laws who screen print shirts as a business so it's cool to see someone do a different technique :) - brodysmommy  406.2 #511 10:16PM
