New Stencil Designs Release!!!

I am so excited to share with you my newest stencil designs for StencilGirl Products!  These are inspired by my fiber art work.  Things that I think everyone would get a kick out of using in their own work, whether it be on paper or fabric! A few of my favorite things!  My designs are hand-drawn on paper.  StencilGirl is an angel company, which means that you can use any of their designs in your work for your own use, and to sell.  All of their stencils are made in the USA. Check out their blog announcement too! StencilGirl Talk too!
20 Dresses is the inspiration behind the "Dress Up" stencils 
9x12 - Dress Up Fashions

6x6 - Dress Up, small
I had so much fun with using these stencils.  The possibilities are endless!  I used Jacquard Textile Paint on hand dyed Batiks.  All of the fabrics were pre-fused with Mistyfuse!  I also used Carolyn Dube's Vintage Alphabet stencils in most of my projects.

9x12 - Stitch Sampler;  includes stitches, free motion work and a measuring tape

Large kraft tags. Dress Up and portions of the Stitch Sampler stencils. I used Liquitex Acrylic Paint onto reduced pattern back images that were laser color copied.  I love the vintage look of these.  They will may great cards or even gift tags.  I finished them off with the black and white polka dot ribbon

The Little Black Dress.  I used Jacquard Textile Paint on fabric to create this sweet piece.  The measuring tape and loop de loop is stenciled onto 1" wide twill tape.  I love the look that this creates. 

Detail of the dresses.  I stenciled them onto black fabric, and again on the batik, then fussy cut the dresses out and placed them on the colors.  I love the effect this creates.
detail to show one of the dresses.  I used pinking sheers to cut the edges around the stencil stitches
Probably my most favorite motif in my work is a house.  So, now you know what is coming next!
6x6 - Patchwork House

6x6 - Whimsy House
The Patchwork House.  Gotta love this!  And it's surrounded by fabrics from my line "Home is Where Your Story Begins" by Hoffman Fabrics.  The perfect centerpiece for the fabric!

Detail - I stenciled many different colors of fabric, cut them up to create this "patchwork" house.

The Whimsy House - it says it all.  Also in this art quilt is a stencil from my first line "Cup of Joe," minus the saucers!  The fabrics I used were all Hoffman Batiks and Hand Dyes!
Detail of Whimsy House stenciled.  I love the textures in this hand-drawn stencil.
The next group of stencils were inspired by this art quilt "Airstream Dreaming" that made the cover of Quilting Arts Magazine last summer for their travel issue!
9x12 - Vintage Camper Trailer

6x6 - Vintage Camper Trailers, small
Lazy Days of Summer.  6x6 Vintage Camper Trailers, small.  I used Jacquard Textile Paint
Up close and personal.  You can see the added hand stitching.   I used #8 Perle Cotton

9x12 Vintage Camper Trailer - I used Liquitex Acrylic Paint and watercolors to create this painting!  I love the bunting flags that are all different and fun!  And who wouldn't want a purple and aqua trailer with pink polka dot curtains?  So happy!

6x6 Vintage Camper Trailers, small.  This is also done the same way as the larger one.  I just love these little trailers.  It makes me want to go out and buy one and refurbish it for the road!  And you can see Sizzix Designer - Eileen Hull's work here using my trailer stencils in a blog hop
Last, but not least.  An empty bolt has become my canvas.  I used the 9x12 Stitch Sampler with black acrylic paint!  Sew fun!  Here's the link to StencilGirl if you want to buy anything that you've seen here, and to their blog StencilGirl Talk.


  1. Those are so fun and I love all the ways you used them, and made unique creations. I got a stencil cutter so I can try my own quilting stencils, but I also like the idea of using them for painting too.


  2. I love your work! It's so colorful and happy.

  3. LOVE the dresses!
