    I have designed my own stencil. I am looking for Blank stencil material larger than what I can buy at the local craft stores. Does anyone know any site on the web that I can try?

    Sorry CatSpring. Wish I did. Have you asked at the local craft store if they come in larger size or maybe they have suggestion where you can go.

    Don't know how big you'd want it, or how you want to use it, but you can also make one out of freezer paper and it will iron on. If you need it stiffer, iron two pieces together first.

    Oh my goodness! Thanks for all your responses. The stencil is for quilting and for a 16x16 square. Planning on making a king size quilt for a dear friend. I actually drew the pattern I wanted on freezer paper. Since I have to make so many squares, I really wanted something a little stiffer. I will try the sites some of you sent. Again, Thanks!!! :D
