    just love these, so bright and so unique, they will be treasured for sure. I can’t wait till my bub can draw to make her some softies.

  • They are great! I was thinking of doing something similar with my kids drawings, to make wall hangings for our playroom. If you ever do a stencil that’s too big for your screen again, consider using freezer paper – it has a shiny side and a matt side. The shiny side can be ironed to the fabric, and a temporary bond is created, and you can just peel it off afterwards. You should be able to buy freezer paper from craft stores – pretty sure Spotlight has it.
