Freezer Paper Tees!

6.26.2009

About 6 months or so ago, Sumiko introduced me to printing on t-shirts with freezer paper. Basically, it's an easy way to create a stencil to then print on fabric (this is a great tutorial if you are interested).

Since I've been wanting to experiment with different ways of printing on fabric, I recently thought I'd try the freezer paper method again to see how realistic it is to make more detailed stencils.

I quickly found that it can be done, but it's terribly time consuming to trace and then cut out each letter (with an x-acto knife). I definitely think freezer paper stencils work best for more simple designs.

However, I did have a lot of fun making these t-shirts for our super good friends, Noa and Julie (to celebrate their 8th anniversary).

I have been wanting to try this out too... I designed a super cute owl (my newest obsession) in illustrator, and have been wanting to make a graphic tee. I just might have to do it now that I see how awesome yours turned out!
