Alabama Chanin Magdalena Stencil

Cutting a Stencil

 

It took several weeks to cut this stencil out. It sat on our dining room table like an unfinished jigsaw puzzle you pick at whenever you pass by. I think I bought too thick a sheet of acetate so I had to stop because it was hurting my hands and enlist my husband to finish, which he did, the sweetheart.

This Alabama Chanin design was printed out, pieced together and spray glued to the acetate. It’s called Magdalena and it’s one of their biggest patterns. Why didn’t I start with a smaller design, I wonder. I think next time I’ll try their other suggested way of making a stencil which is to use the same method on felt.
