What materials did you use? Fleece from JoAnn Fabrics. Polar fleece, I think. Martha Stewart template and paints.

This fleece must have been on the bolt at the store for a long time. I did pre-wash it, but there was a faint white line where the fold had been. It was ok and I don't think anyone would notice, but it was a good reason to use my paints and cover it up. I am really pleased with how this turned out. It was my first time using a template. I could have done a better job on the cuffs; they bled a little bit, but I learned things. Next time I will paint/stencil before I sew it together. Hope it inspires someone!

I don't know why that picture is so blurry. My original pic doesn't look like that. Sorry!

Neat! Has the paint held up through multiple washings?

I have washed it a couple of times since painting and the paint has held up really well. The painted areas do feel a little stiff, but it doesn't bother me.
