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. I can’t recall the books’ title, but 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 absolutely tidy about it either. I just made sure to allow the paint to dry thoroughly so it wouldn’t peel off, and even added varnish on top to reinforce just in case.

Material Notes

white synthetic curtain lining with slight stretch, waterproof enamel paint, paint sealer
