Stenciling Tutorial (Part 1)

Stenciling (Part 1) -
How to create your own stencil

I found a pattern I liked online that I wanted to use in my bathroom.  It wasn't available as a stencil, so I decided to make my own.  Here's a tutorial to try this if you feel inspired.

     What you need to make stencil:
          -   Clear plastic sheeting
          -   Cutting tool/X-acto knife
          -   Cutting surface/self healing cutting mat
          -   Tape
          -   Printout with pattern or paper to draw your own design

- Monkey Hat -
I love this monkey hat!  It's so fun!  You can make it with or without earflaps - plain or with a flower - monkey colored or bright blue.  Be a little silly and make one for yourself and your favorite small person!
