|Hand-stitching vapor trails-|
For those of us who love a needle & thread...here are some ideas for folding the new, PAPER AIRPLANE Stencil into your sewing projects.
Hand-Stitching- I admit it...I do enjoy hand sewing, maybe more than most. Stitching the motion trails of the planes is a whimsical way to imply flying and tie in an accent color at the same time. In the photo on the left, is that stitching added to a re-designed shirt I will share in the next blog.

|Printing a partial stencil-|
Printing Bias- I rarely use a stencil the same way twice. They are more versatile if printing parts of images or overlapping 2 different ones to create new shapes and designs all together. This is a GREAT way to reinvent your whole stencil collection and create new images in your work.
On to this peach color linen bias. I printed, alternating the tips of 2 of the airplanes for the triangles in my design. See what part of the stencil I used in the photo.
|Deciding on the binding width|
Notice I started with the wide band at the neck...but decided to fold it over for a narrower band there.
