Birds in Flight

Another example of freezer paper stencil. Any simple image can become fabric art. The bird image is just clip art. There are tutorials all over if you've not tried this yet.
I listed a few of my favorites in this post.

Isn't there a nursery rhyme that refers to a hole in her stocking? Does anyone know it?
Maybe it was a little song? Maybe I dreamed it?

Anyway... I thought this was a good photo to end with.

I love freezer paper stenciling, but am way too impatient to do it frequently. this collection of birds is lovely.

I like that you have stenciled over a printed fabric. That's a really nice contrast between the stripeed background and the solid color stencil.

ooh you got me wondering about hole in stocking songs now. at this early time of the morning, i can only think of henry who had a hole in his *bucket*, so liza offered lots of sensible suggestions to fix it. if you think of the song please tell!

Love this. What pattern did you use? Or did you dream this up with the hole in the stocking song?

The pattern is cafe style. I just held the fabric up and decided how far I wanted it to wrap around my body. It's just a rectangle with a shorter rectangle on the top sewn down for the pockets. Does that make sense? Somehow I always make it sound harder than it is.
