Print Your Free Dragonfly Stencil Template

In SewStylish's Spring 2014 issue, the article "Printed Denim" featured a pair of jeans embellished with deColourant-printed dragonflies. You can use the same stencil we used to print the jeans by downloading the template featured in the story.

1. After downloading the template, print it on clear plastic transparency sheets (used to create transparencies for overhead projectors) on your home printer. Transparency sheets can be purchased at office supply stores and Amazon.com.

2. Cut away the dragonfly shape by first snipping inside its printed outline and then cutting along the lines.

stamp   You can also use this template to carve your own stamp.
