DIY freezer paper stenciled scarf Inspired by the frozen boulders the city snowplow piled up along our street, I made a scarf. To make this, you'll need: fabric, freezer paper, scissors, iron, pencil, craft knife, cutting mat, fabric paint, and a foam brush. I used a length of jersey from the fabric store—you know, T-shirt material. Soft and comfy, and doesn't fray around the edges. I sketched an abstract design onto the uncoated side of the freezer paper. These were just messy hexagons and pentagons that got gradually smaller.
Elastic threaded through a casing is a quick, easy way to cinch in fabric. It creates pretty gathers that are also stretchy. It’s most often used on a waistline, but you can also use it to gather in the hems of sleeves or even around a neckline on a peasant blouse. As simple as the process is, there are some pitfalls. Over the years, I think I’ve fallen prey to all of them!
