Texas Rangers Faux TOMS

Over the last few months, I've been too busy or exhausted to craft, create, paint, bake or even really cook for that matter.  But I did find some time to make my mama a gift she would love for Mother's Day.

I used freezer paper as a stencil so that I could get that Rangers' "T" just right.  Have you ever used freezer paper before?  It's super easy.  You just cut out your stencil and iron it on to your fabric causing the plastic side to stick allowing you to paint without worrying about your stencil moving.  When the paint is dry, the freezer paper peels right off.  Here's a tutorial from Make Myself at Home that was really handy.

I free handed the baseball, so it's not as perfect as I wanted it to be, but it think it turned out alright for my first shot! 

Mama wore these to the Rangers game that we went to as a big ole family and she loved them!  She said that they were really comfortable too!  I was thinking of making a Mean Green pair for myself just in time for football season!
