freezer paper stencils, homemade mac & cheese, whoopie pies, oh my!

The knitting triangle got together last night to work on pumpkin t-shirts for this weekend's pumpkin beer pub crawl. Last year, we made felt pumpkin pins, so I can only imagine what we'll have to make next year to one-up ourselves...

After a VERY delicious dinner of crockpot mac & cheese and this salad with apples and toasted pumpkin seeds, we started working on our freezer paper pumpkin shirts.

It's a pretty quick, easy, rewarding craft. Here's what we did:

1. find a template online, print out the desired size
2. trace onto freezer paper & cut out the pieces (focusing on which are supposed to be cut out and which aren't...that part is hard for me.) shrek headband is optional for this craft.

3. iron onto t-shirt
4. paint with a sponge brush or kitchen sponge

5. let dry for a while/overnight (this part's important) and peel off the freezer paper!

Oh, and did I forget to mention that (thanks to a special request from one of our faithful readers) I did in fact come through in the end and make the pumpkin whoopie pies? They were as good as they look.
