Like Tony the Tiger said, "These patterns are Great", so grateful for them. They will be used in a setting in Tianjin, China as a means to introduce parts of American culture to Chinese people. Friday Night English Corner gathering....Love your site...God bless all!

It looks like whoever posted this stencil never actually tried to use it. If you cut out the white areas, the nostrils have nothing that attaches them and will come out with the white areas. :-(

On the bear you cut out the white, but on the stealie you cut out the gray areas. I have done bith of these without stencils and they turn out beautifully. With the bear I use an extra pumpkin to cut out ear shapes then make slots to stick them in so that the ears stick out.
