Peace symbol stencils
There is something that just makes me cringe about peace symbols on clothing and jewelry that are mass produced by countries with dubious labor practices and sold by big box stores that drive small businesses out of business. Because of that, my daughter's favorite peace symbol necklace is one I twisted for her out of wire.
Lately, I've seen seeing a ton of them on clothes, and I like the idea of wearing clothes with peace symbols, either embroidered or stenciled on, but for me, it really has to be something handmade with pride. The idea itself seems to need a personal commitment to the concept, not just buying something made and sold in a way that directly contradicts the ideal.
I did mention I'm a second generation hippie right?
ANYWAY.. *grins* a couple stencils you can use on a thrift store shirt turned inside out, or a shirt bought from No Sweat's going out of business sale. I hope you can use them and like them. As usual, click on the images for the full size version, print out at whatever size you wish. Cut out the gray parts, and there's your stencil. You can find a lot more information about stencils here at Stencil Punks. I have more stencils here.
