Stencil-along with Hoppo Bumpo

The wonderful Hoppo Bumpo is having a freezer paper stencil-along, and now that I have some freezer paper (thanks Liesl!) I can join in! I have my noodle bowl design that I made for applique a while back that I want to stencil up and I also want to do a robot too. It appears it's hard to find a cute simple robot stencil these days. Stencils have progressed a lot since I was a kid, and robot stencils have now progressed to stuff like this:

Thank you katutaide

I think I'll have to make one myself.

I think I'm being way too ambitious, but I'm the sort of person
that rushes in head first and thinks about how it's actually going to be done later. I like to think this is a good thing, otherwise I wouldn't have attempted nearly so many things that I have (but no, sky diving is never going to be one of those things).

So tonight I'll tinker with my designs and hopefully I'll get some time to stencil them up over the next few days. What fun!

Can't wait to see the designs...especially the robot.

Crikey, that robot stencil would involve a fair bit of cutting (and in my case, swearing too). Can't wait to see what you come up with. I love the sound of a noodle bowl stencil.

OK, so I have jumped out of a plane - on my own. Twice. Yeap, the rush in without thinking thing is also part of my nature. This method looks interesting. Hmmmm. Thinking of possibilities.
