Swiss Cross Stencil Pouch

If you love the swiss cross like I do, you'll find this stencilling project fun. You can practically stencil anything you want. 

Here, I made a canvas pouch with the stencilled beloved shape.

 Canvas fabric are cut to sizes, washed and hung to dry.

I performed a little paint test on the canvas to see if it gets washed out. Passed! 

I printed the font Zapf Dingbats, 'Shift :' to get the swiss cross shape on paper, cut it out, and used it as a guide to create the stencil using masking tape.

The paint and stencil brush. 

Just simply paint the canvas surface! 

Remove the tapes. 

Masking tapes make great stencils for stripes too!

Hi! I bought the canvas long time ago in Singapore, some shop in an ulu place, I've forgotten the name. Sorry, can't help much! I am also searching for new sources...
