My Own Face Shirt

My son is one proud big brother. He loves to poke, squeeze, and snuggle his baby sister. I decided to help him show off his feelings by making him this shirt:
He calls it his "me shirt."

I followed the instructions for making a freezer paper stencil found here.

It took me a while to find a photo that had the shadows that worked. This is the original:I cut the design out by hand. It seems like it would take a long time, but it wasn't bad. In fact, I bought blank shirts for everyone in the family so they can have a fun shirt too.

If you happen to have a Silhouette machine, go to this tutorial to find out how to make your stencil using your machine.
