Sneak Peek

I’m currently testing a pyjama set that should be released by the end of the week. I can’t share yet, but here’s a little sneak peek.



The set is for Jackson. I did some freezer paper stencilling on the top and one of the footies. My first time doing a freezer paper stencil. It isn’t 100% perfect, but I think it’s pretty good for a first attempt.

I free handed the deathly hallows on a scrap of paper and then retraced onto freezer paper. I was originally going to do it with the hallow black, instead of it being the fabric. But those little pieces were not ironing down in the right place for me. So I switched my idea up slightly. My husband says it looks like the deathly hallows still. So, it’s all good.

I found the glasses and scar stencil by searching on Pinterest. Gotta love Pinterest. Here’s the original source of the stencil. That link also contains the tutorial on how to use the stencil. I didn’t use acrylic paint for mine. I have fabric puffy paint, and applied it with a sponge brush.

I’m thinking….. I want to stencil all the things. Can’t wait to show you the finished pjs.


About manningthemachine

I'm Laura. Mama to four, and wife to one awesome guy. I'm ever so slightly sarcastic. Just a little bit. I like to quote movies, but since our house is managed by little people, most of those quotes come from kiddie shows. At least my husband generally gets the references. It makes me feel less awkward. I took sewing lessons starting at the age of 8, through the Kids Can Sew program. I took lessons for four or five years. Then I became a snotty teen and decided sewing was lame. I've repented of my ways, and enjoy sewing for my little ones. And sometimes other people. And almost never for myself. Oh hey. My blog name. "Manning The Machine." I think it's probably only funny if you know me in real life. And even then, maybe it is only funny to me. My last name is Manning. This is a blog about my sewing. Manning The (Sewing) Machine. Do you get it? Do you? No. That's fine. I think it's funny even if you don't.
