Today, I'm sharing a fun sewing project I made with Stencil Girl Stencils and kraft-tex (affiliate link). Stay tuned for the giveaway at the end of the post, so you can make your own stenciled boxy zipper pouch!
When thinking about what project I wanted to make with kraft-tex, I came up with the boxy zipper pouch I've made several times. Instead of making a quilt sandwich, I used a single layer of kraft-tex, which is a substrate that feels like strong paper or flexible leather. It's very strong... much stronger than I expected!
I experimented with a few different types of ink or paint with the stencils, using what I had around my house. Here's my favorite method of stamping!
1) Iron the kraft-tex as flat as possible
2) Spray back side of a Stencil Girl stencil with repositionable adhesive and press to the kraft-tex.
3) Using a makeup sponge, apply some craft paint over the stencil. Repeat across the entire surface.
Here's what my kraft-tex looked like after I stenciled one side completely. I didn't worry too much about being precise, because I knew the fabric would wrap around the pouch in my project, and I wanted that organic, hand-stamped look.
I love my new boxy zippered pouch! If you aren't famliar with Stencil Girl Stencils or the awesome kraft-tex, I'd encrouage you to give them a try.
