I can’t take credit for this awesomeness, but I received a great gift the other day from my friend Megan. She made this t-shirt scarf that she has a how to on her blog to make!

You can wear it several ways and she gave me grey since she knows me too well! Go check it out at her blog and then tell her how awesome she is for giving me one just because!

{Crafts}: Freezer Paper Tea Towels

I have been obsessed with freezer paper lately. It is way to easy to use and makes the best custom stencils for fabric projects! I started my first project for my book club wine exchange. I made a tea towel to wrap the wine bottle with a saying I found “My book club only reads wine labels.” Very fitting I must say!

I used an exacto knife to cut the words out of the freezer paper and then ironed it on the tea towel and used a sponge brush to put fabric paint on it. I let it dry and then removed the stencil-no messy residue and clean lines-although the only downside is that the stencils aren’t very reusable unless you try to not rip them off, but still I wouldn’t reuse them.

What a fun gift idea! I then started coming up with more ideas for gifts and made some LSU/Louisiana themed ones for Brad’s family.

I sewed yellow and purple ribbons on some plain tea towels to add some LSU color and I found some handmade tags in my sewing basket with my name on them!

I need to find out where I got these…I think some one gave them to me as a gift back in the day.

I of course didn’t take a final photo before I wrapped them up, but you can see where I was going with the idea at least! His family thought we had bought them at first! I’m planning some more that I can’t reveal until I give them away!

Have you ever used freezer paper? For anything other than stencils??

Craft on!
