Boyfriend Tank

.
Because sometimes the men in our lives need a little crafting love too.


 I found this bright blue tank at Target and fancied it up with a little bike silhouette. Boyfriend is quite the biker, making regular trips to mountain biking trails. He also recently got one of those fixie road bikes, just like the one in the picture I used.


There are already so many great freezer paper stenciling tutorials out there, so I won't bother to give a full tutorial.  Check out this tutorial at Make it and Love it or this one over at MADE for more of a full run down of stenciling with freezer paper.

A fancy tank for Boyfriend. And yep, he likes it. 

P.S. We're back from Florida and it was exactly the vacation we needed. And a great break from the dry Texas heat.


Here's some snap shots of our trip:








These are from the Edison Estate in Ft. Myers. I had fun playing photographer in the beautiful gardens. Feel free to snag these for your own personal use. 








There's still time to enter the Anthro Giveaway. Just get your entry in before Midnight central time tonight. I'll announce the winner tomorrow at noon!

It's nice to hear someone willing to let their photos be used. I'm so used to bloggers putting up all sorts of warnings about using their patterns/photos etc, or whinning if they aren't given enough recognition. I follow you via Reader :-)

Those stencils are such a great idea! It makes it so easy to customize anything. I think it would be cool to use that technique to silk screen your own patterned fabric. :)
