zombie crafts

I am nothing if not a total copy cat.
I long time ago I bought a shirt for one of the kids that
"i heart zombies"
it was super cute.. kinda pricey..
(but made by a SAHM so I bought it)
Now that it has been grown out of...
(still remains a hand me down for fionie)
I decided to just make a new one.
Finally figured out how the freezer paper stencils work..
it was a little bit tedious to cut out the letter.s...
did not have an exacto knife as recommended..
I used a leatherman supertool! Quite brave on my
part.. I have gotten more than my fair share of
bloody wounds from using a leatherman.
But... a bloody wound.. an I heart zombies tee..
kinda works I think.
Ok so no blood.
a cool shirt though!
AND I used some fabric paint that turned velveteen when
steamed with the iron..
it was rad!
velvety letters..
wow.. I don't pretend to even know how it works. its just neato!
