What materials did you use? old tees from my husband's stash. I have become obsessed with this style of embellishment.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Practice the stitching. I sew all the time with the sewing machine but rarely by hand. It took awhile to get fairly consistent with the stitching. Try several weights and colors of threads.

I used freezer paper to cut out my stencils and ironed it (shiny side down) to the fabric before applying the paint. It eliminated the need for the spray adhesive and the paint didn't seep under the stencil but I don't know how durable it will be for further use. Good luck ! Can't wait to see what you come up with

Beautiful sample. I also love the colors you've chosen - particularly the different thread colors. Looking forward to seeing more!
