This is just fabulously cute on your cheeky monkey!! I've got some freezer paper but haven't had a chance to try this technique yet - how did you transfer their monkey onto your paper?

Very cool! Does the freezer paper stick to the fabric?

Did your paint call for heat setting? This usually keeps the design from washing out. Your idea of using freezer paper was great. You should add it to the tip section. I have an Ottobre childrens magazine and will soon be trying one of their patterns since everyone seems to like them. Hope my DGS's turns out as good as your shirt.

To answer a few questions... :) I transferred the monkey to the freezer paper by placing the paper on top of the monkey picture and tracing the design. The freezer paper has just enough transparency to see through---would be nice if it were more transparent, lol. Yes, the freezer paper sticks to the fabric when you iron it down. Just be sure to iron with the waxy side down. After painting, I let it dry for about 20 minutes and then just peeled the freezer paper right off. The fabric paint I used did not tell how to heat set the paint, but I am going to get the hair dryer out or run the shirt through the dryer before washing. Thanks for all the comments!
