$50 Cutting Edge Stencil Giveaway and Review--Closed

This Giveaway has closed.
Happy New Year! 
What better way to start out the new year than with a giveaway, right?  Right! 

How does a free Cutting Edge Stencil of your choice (up to a $50 value, w/free shipping) sound to you?  Pretty good?

Cutting Edge Stencils has a large selection of stencils to choose from including a new line of craft size stencils that are the perfect size for smaller projects like pillows as well as larger size stencils for walls and furniture.

I've wanted to try stenciling on fabric for awhile now, so when Cutting Edge Stencils contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in reviewing one of their stencils and hosting a giveaway I was ready to dive right in and give it a try!

I thought a pillow cover would be a great first-time fabric stenciling project and it was, I actually had a lot of fun with it and it was so easy.  I still need some practice with stenciling on fabric (you might notice that the paint is a little blotchy, but I will go back and touch it up and am confident my skills will improve for my next project. )  The lines however are all crisp and clean, I was pretty amazed with how well the stencil worked and know I'll use it again on a larger project at some point.



The stencil I used is called the Rabat craft stencil.  I started with some fabric that I bought on clearance, it's a heavy weight two-sided woven fabric, a natural color on one side, dark brown on the other.  The pillows have envelope backs made with osnaburg fabric (same as the ruffle).

I used regular acrylic craft paint and bought a fabric medium to mix in with it.  It was 2 parts paint (1 bottle), 1 part fabric medium (1/2 bottle).  Just follow the directions on the fabric medium bottle, it's quite simple to do.  My paint may have been too thick, next time I might thin it out just a little. 

I was impressed with the quality of the stencil and glad that they included a free smaller stencil so I could practice with it first.



The stencil was easy to line up when I needed to move it and cleaned up really well when I was done.
