That Other Droid

Sharing some home-made Christmas gifts today. 

This is a shirt for the husband.

Freezer paper stencil,

It's like every time there's a fun droid, I have to make a shirt.

To answer the question I anticipate you asking: no, I'm sorry, I don't have the template for the BB-8 stencil. I found a random image on the internet, and redrew it to be stencil-friendly, then cut it out. And you know how freezer paper stencils are: once you cut it all out, it's in pieces. Unre-usable. Gone. :(

Here's another shirt I stenciled for Emily. 

Not an original swimming catchphrase, by the way. It's all over the internet. You can even buy ready-made shirts with this. However, I couldn't find one in a kid's size. So I made my own artwork - just five different fonts, one for each line. Easy.

In the next post, I'll show you what the kids made for each other, and after that, I'll share that cardboard kit I made for Jenna!


  1. Great shirts! I have yet to try freezer stenciling, but I did use a plastic stencil to decorate shirts this week. I am guessing it would have looked better with freezer paper stencils!

  2. Was the other shirt really four years ago!?! I made some BB-8 snowflakes and ornaments, but no shirt yet. Love the touches of orange.

    1. Hey, Holly! Yes, 4 years ago. I couldn't believe it, either, when I linked back to the archives and looked at the date. Where did all that time go?

  3. I've never tried freezer paper stencils... time to go looking through past posts and figure out how to do it.... it looks great!


Thank you for talking to me! If you have a question, I might reply to it here in the comments or in an email.
