Rocket Ship Stencil DIY

Every kid loves a rocket ship (especially this big kid) and this stenciled t-shirt and pillow couldn't be easier to make!  I used FREEZER PAPER.  Yup, you heard me......plain old Reynolds Freezer Paper. It has a plastic coating and can be ironed on fabric to create a crisp stencil in which to fill in with paint.  You're going to LOVE this technique!  Use Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints from DecoArt (which are washable) and you're ready for blast off!  Try different shapes and have fun!

Ready to blast off!
Here's the how-to video

You'll need:
Americana Multi-Surface Satin Paints in Orange, Blue and Grey
White cotton fabric (1 yard)
Pillow stuffing or pillow form
Sewing machine with matching thread
 Draw a rocket ship, fold it in half and cut it out so it's symmetrical
Fold another piece of paper in half and cut out some flames
Fold some freezer paper in half and trace your cut out pieces on to the fold
 Carefully cut out the shapes in the freezer paper
Iron the freezer paper on the t-shirt OR on your pillow fabric
Fill in the shapes with the Americana Multi-Surface paints and let dry
Peel off the freezer paper and enjoy your new Rocket Tee!
 For the pillow, repeat the process for the t-shirt and then cut out some stars in the freezer paper
Fold your paper in half and then half again to create 4-point stars
Repeat the process from above for the rocket ship and flames
Peel off the freezer paper when the paint is dry
Fill in some stars with gray paint for the pillow
Stitch the pillow together using 1/2" seam allowance and fill with stuffing
Stitch the pillow closed and you're done!
