Update on Stencils:
I made an experiment today with the stencils to see if it would even work. I'm going to sum it up in one word: fail hahah. I had a tiny stencil and tried it out on an old shopping bag. Now, I love doing crafts but I've never been a fan of painting so I don't really do it. This is what I started out with:
You can barely see the stencil because it's almost the same color of the bag. I used some double sided tape to keep it in place.
Well, first attempt was really a total fail. I put the spray paint too close and basically soaked the fabric to the point it bled to the other side. Don't do that guys haha. That's the right side on the picture below. Then I decided to try again. I put the can further away and went over it a few times. It turned out a little better, but since the stencil wasn't big enough and it has really tiny parts which I couldn't put tape on, the design didn't come out very well.
I'm not ready to reject the null hypothesis yet haha. I have experiment #2 to do. I'll try it with a bigger stencil and really stick the whole thing on to the fabric. Let's hope that turns out ok.
On a more positive note...
I felt like my dress for the legal ceremony needed a little something. I found a nice belt at Michael's. I didn't want to spend a lot, but with the coupon this ended up being $20. It looks really good with the dress, I just have to cut it.
