Personalized Pencil Pouch

It's back to school time!
Gotta get all the school supplies
organized and ready for 
another year!

A personalized pencil pouch
is the perfect way
to haul all of those supplies to school!

Personalized Pencil Pouch, canvas zipper bag made with glitter paint and fabric paint

I found this plain canvas pouch
at Hobby Lobby.

How to cut a freezer paper stencil with a silhouette

I made a design and cut it 
out with my silhouette in freezer paper.

{Here is the secret to cut freezer paper with the Silhouette}
After finishing the design you want to cut out,

1.  Flip the design horizontally
2.  Load the paper on the cutting mat shiny side up.
3.  Cut freezer paper with the vellum setting.

The freezer paper is now a stencil.
The shiny side is wax and it melts onto
the fabric with an iron.

Pull the freezer paper stencil off the cutting mat
and discard the letters.
Make sure to keep the inner letter pieces
like for O, P, R, etc.

Iron the stencil onto
the canvas bag using a medium heat setting.
Make sure to carefully iron the little
bitty pieces that go inside the round letters.

Using fabric paint and a sponge pouncer
dab the paint onto the word.
Pouncing will keep the paint from
bleeding underneath the stencil.

For the other part of the saying,
I used glitter and adhesive for fabric.

I covered the painted portion with a paper towel
so it wouldn't get glitter on it.

The adhesive package says to let
the piece lie flat for 2 hours to dry.

Then brush off the excess glitter and peel the
freezer paper off.

I used a tiny paint brush to remove
the errant glitter.
