    Julie, I love this pillow!!!I have been looking for pillows with a bird on it just like that bird! I have been doing my livingroom with some of the birds like that. I would love to try and make me some like that! You did a wonderful job!!! I enjoy reading all of your neat stuff. You are so creative. I enjoy re-doing old furniture and things also. Michael and I love going to yard sales,auctions,thrift stores, and etc. It's amazing what you can find! Keep sharing all of your great ideas. Love it!!!!

    AWESOME post! And just in time because I happen to have some unsuspecting plain fabrics lying around doing nothing in their laziness. Lazy no more- they are about to become EMBELLISHED by STENCIL!! Thank you!

    THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! I was planning to try to come up with a pillow similar to this this weekend and you just made my job so much easier! I have a tote that they gave away at Old Navy with darling birch tree and bird silhouettes that I can't wait to use to try this. Love your blog!

    Oh! Love it! I did freezer paper stencil t-shirts for some Christmas gifts and I LOVED them. It is SO easy and such a satisfying result in the end. This looks great and I just love the appliqued leaves – they're perfect!

    Wow I am so glad to find this!! I have always heard of freezer paper but never was quite sure what it was!! Yay I can't wait to use it! Can you only use it on fabric? Or can you use it on wood and such?

    I am hosting a Mummies Night Out a fundraising party for a young mom dealing with cancer – discovered the day she gave birth. I have the supplies for each party guest to make your darling fall banner. I am wondering if the freezer paper stencil is reuseable – and about how many uses you could get out of it? I have about 25 party guests and am hoping not to have to make 25 stencils! Thanks!

    @Leigh Anne@Your Homebased Mom
    What a great idea to help your friend. I've never tried to reuse the stencils. I'm doubting it would work, though, due to the mess. You wouldn't want to iron over it again after it was covered in paint. I get why you wouldn't want to have to cut out so many, but you might just let the guests do it themselves, since it's only 4 letters & not too bad. The freezer paper comes on a huge roll, so there would be plenty for 25 stencils. Hope that helps you!

    Beautiful! Love that it's part stencil, part applique. I also like how you changed the original design from berries to leaves. Very nice. Visiting from CSI.
