Bicycle stencils - first cut.

Today I simplified my drawings even further (see yesterdays posting) and cut my first stencils for three years! I transferred my design to acetate sheet and used a heat cutter for the first time (I only burned myself once). It's a lot easier than using a knife on card which is what I used to do. A big and belated "Thank You" to my friend Diane who bought me the cutter a couple of years ago.

The lower image is the OS single speed 29er owned by my neighbor and good friend John.
I have great neighbors!
