Did you grow up in the 90's? If you did, you know this "S", right?

I love this S, especially now that my last name starts with an S! This shirt is the perfect conversation piece for everyone that recognizes it, let's make it now!

Freezer paper is found at the grocery store near the wax paper. It has one glossy surface which is coated in wax, so it adheres to fabric when pressed and make the perfect stencil.
Place some freezer paper on the mat with the glossy side touching the mat. Then cut out the S, there is a setting for freezer paper, so it's easy!
Then remove the outline of the S and place it on the shirt where you want the S to be. Press the freezer paper down with the EasyPress 2.
Then pull out the inside of the S and press it in the space, allowing that small gap border.
Once pressed it is ready to paint.
I picked Black fabric paint, Fabric Creations by Plaid is exquisite! It dries soft and flexible instead of stiff and cracking.
Use the stencil brush to paint the black fabric paint on the shirt.
Painting fabric paint on a shirt almost makes a distressed finish, so I don't over coat the paint. I love the distressed look.
As soon as the paint is laid down, peel off the freezer paper carefully.
Then let it sit until it is completely dry.
Finish off the paint by heat setting according to the fabric creations bottle.
