KCW – A Girl With Freckles…

Well I meant to be back this week with more knitting inspiration…but I kind of gapped that it was Kid’s Clothes Week… Soooo, I’m going to save the inspiration for next week and show you my first finished KCW project.

I realize that today is Day 3, and I actually finished sewing this on Day 1…but it’s better late then never. And honestly, it was a super quick sew! I’ve had the Tumblee Tee pattern by imagine gnats in my pattern stash for a while now and have cut it out several times… I just wasn’t sure what to make with it, I can be a bit indecisive sometimes when it comes to cutting into fabric. I finally just bite the bullet and grabbed some of this super comfy Laguna jersey in navy and cut out the tee.

I had come across this quote a few years ago on pinterest (author is unknown) and had this idea over the summer to make a quote inspired tee for A, since she has the cutest freckles. I wanted to give it a simple look and offset the quote to the side for an almost colour blocked/modern take. I think it turned out pretty good. In these pictures it seems like the letters are too far over but they actually sit really well on her.

I used the freezer paper stencil method to transfer the quote I had unto the tee. I also had some glitter fabric paint. Hindsight here, I would suggest to do one or two layers of white first and then one or two thin layers of sparkle fabric paint over top after. I only used sparkle paint and it was a little tough to pull the stencil off after. But it was soooo worth it! She loves it, and I’m happy with the outcome. This is also my first time freezer paper stenciling!

And just for fun, I’m also including a free printable of the stencil that I used so that you can make one too if your heart desires 🙂 If you use the stencil, I’d love to see how it turns out! I should be back a little later this week with, hopefully, some more KCW makes!
