Cupcake T-Shirt

On a recent consignment store trip, I found a plain white t-shirt for Pinkerbelle for $1.  It was fine, but it was a perfect candidate for some embellishment.  I decided to do some freezer paper stenciling; it’s quick and easy and I hadn’t done any in a while.

I chose to do the totally trendy cupcake and free-handed a design (I did look at images online and based it on some of those).  Feel free to enlarge and use this image if you like.

I wanted to put a caption underneath and asked P. what she wanted it to say; she immediately said “sweet”.  My crafty cutter is an old fashioned model called  “x-acto”.  It’s a little more labor-intensive than the newer models, but effective nontheless.

I used metallic gold fabric paint for the cupcake wrapper and pulled a toothpick through it to create the lines.  Dimensional fabric paint was perfect for the sprinkles.

It’s always a little bit thrilling to pull off the freezer paper and see the result.

I let P. try it on before she went to bed.  She loves it, but she was being a goofball for the camera.

Very cute! It's great to see that those of us without a machine can still make a cute stencil with freezer paper and an x-acto knife. I'll bet I know what P. is wearing to school today!
