My love of Freezer Paper

I discovered the art of freezer paper stenciling and dyeing your own clothes! I don't think I'll ever buy another logo-ed article of clothing again!! Very fun and very rewarding. A little time consuming for me because the exacto knife and I are not very chummy... but that's another story. I of course couldn't find the camera until the whole process was finished but here are the end results!

My baby is going to be born in the year of the ox... saw this for $35, figured I could do it for a whole lot cheaper! Dyed it blue and stenciled away!
This is red. I know it doesn't look that way in the photos but trust me it's a heathery red. Nate is peeved because he thinks our baby is going to be confused for a girl.
California for me with a little heart over San Francisco and....
Arizona for Nate with a little heart over Tucson. This has to be my favorite out of the two onesies! I told Nate we'll just put blue jeans on him, blue socks, blue blanket and a blue binky wherever we go in this top. :)

This has nothing to do with freezer paper, but I wanted to share the blanket I made for Chelseas darling baby Afton. It's just two pieces of fleece and I crocheted the edges. I was very excited to make a girl blanket!

A New Skill

Well, we'll see if it's a "skill" when I'm done :) Lisa taught me how to knit dishcloths so that will probably be something I do over and over again. It's really fun but I think it's harder than crocheting cause you have to handle two things at once. (Opree calls it multeetaskin'). Anyway, it's a new favorite.
