Stencilled Tea Towels

I love a bit of freezer paper stenciling. I first had a go HERE for Fathers Day, and here we are again!!

This time I made some tea towels (I couldn't find what I wanted anywhere) from navy and white ticking and some plain old white twill. Take my word for it - a pattern is so much easier to work with!! It hides any imperfections

I got the freezer paper out for a house warming gift, and picked up some very cute coffee mugs at Kmart to go along with them.
