Freezer Paper Stencil

I could just hug the crafter (crafters) that came up with the brilliant idea to use freezer paper as stencil tool. It doesn't move. It stays where you want, for as long as you want.

Just in case you've never tried freezer paper stenciling here is a great tutorial. Craftster also has some great info on this technique.

Summer of the Dress Re-Visited

Effie Fannie Grace H........

My plan is to continue making summer dresses as if winter never happened.

The Bella dress was posted on wardrobe refashion. I couldn't locate a photo for this post. I'll try to find it, and add it later.
