Banana Stencil – BurdaStyle 5/2011 #147

To keep me dry and clean (when washing up, or preferably: when creating art, lol!) I stitched up an apron using a basic template from a sewing craft book for which I can’t recall the title of. However there is a surge of sewing and craft books on the market nowadays and most include patterns, DIY is in style! But then I thought how do I decorate this stark curtain lining fabric? (- I got heaps for only a dollar, lol!). The apron is fairly waterproof, but not oven proof, and I faced the edges where the straps might pull. Well I was reading a BurdaStyle mag and there you have it, a Warhol style banana stencil was the answer. I used enamel house paint test-pots with a paintbrush, and cardboard stencils, and I wasn’t completely tidy about it either. I made sure to allow the paint to dry thoroughly so it wouldn’t peel off, and I even added a varnish layer to reinforce .

Material Notes

white synthetic curtain lining with some give, waterproof enamel paint, top-coat sealer/varnish.
