|Here are some details about my project:|
What materials did you use? Cotton jersey in 3 colors ("peacock", "grape", "midnight"), acrylic craft paint, commercial stencil
What are you most proud of? Not making too much of a mess on the kitchen counter, and getting the stencils removed and repositioned without smudging the fabric paint!
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Most of the commercial stencils available at my local crafts store were not suitable for this method, as the shapes and motifs were either too small, too complex, or both. For the reverse applique technique, most or all of the shapes should be large enough to cut away the center about 1/8" inside the edge to reveal the under-layer fabric.
