DIY Stencils

I love the uniformity and regularity you can achieve with stencils, but I can never find stencils I like – they’re always cheesy kids pictures or too finely detailed for my purposes. While cruising around trying to find something else I came across this tutorial over on Sand & Sisal, I especially love the hibiscus flower she’s stencilled in the tutorial – they’re my second favorite flower after frangipani 😉

Now to track down one of those fancy Martha Stewart cutting tool thingy . . .

I found a stamping “how-to”!

I don’t know about anyone else, but as an extremely novice crafter, I’ve found it difficult to find really basic info on various crafts. In this tutorial over at the zen of making everything is covered right down to how to apply your ink to the stamps!

Cross stitch is one craft I’ve had years of experience on, and I’ve always loved it – so this little stamping project really appeals to me. Definitely worth a go – I reckon it would be fun to stamp & stitch on card as well as fabric.
