I took a photo that I already had of my son's profile (think of all those photos where you tried to get a face shot, but the kid turned their head!). Since I can never figure out my wireless printer connection and my husband was not around to fix it, I held up a piece of white paper up to my computer screen and traced by son's profile. Then I transferred that on to freezer paper and cut it out. Then I simply followed the same directions for freezer paper stenciling. I favor dark grey over black, but bright colors like orange would look pretty cool too.
I added a band of bias tape on the bottom of one and for the other I added large black ric-rac. I'm pleased with the way they turned out.
I've made 2 more silhouettes on a blue fabric that I was going to make into pillows, now I am reconsidering. I am thinking of adding one to an apron for my mom and dad. Still not sure yet. Ideas?
I love how his little hairs stick out in the back! So stinkin' cute, that boy!
