From fabric pattern to stencil

1 Comment

Before (L) and after (R)

I made this lampshade yesterday just using some stencil plastic and fabric paint. I copied the design from one of my favourite fabrics from the Moda collection “Just Wing it by Momo” and made the pattern into three seperate layers of stencil.

I think the pictures explain the process better than words would, if they don’t, leave me a comment. This technique would suit printing on clothing just as well, I’m going to have to try it soon.

1. Tape the stencil plastic on top of your design.
2. Outline the layer of the design that you are making the stencil out of.
3. Cut out the design using a thin razor (note that you shouldn’t use the same cutting board that you use for cutting straight fabric pieces)
4. The stencil is done.
5. Tape the stencil to the lampshade.
6. After the first layer of paint.

After layer 2

All three stencils

This was the best shot I could get at night…

I love to be creative, especially to sew, finding new patterns and fabrics is always rewarding and fun. I've grown up with the craft, my mother is a quilt-shop owner and her love for sewing has rubbed off on me.
