I had this idea months ago and was FINALLY able to sit down and bring it to life, and I must say, it’s even better than I imagined. (:
Here’s the finished one being modeled, man my model was feisty today! These were the best out of like 50 pics…
Sheesh. That kid.
Back to the tutorial…so I’ve heard other bloggers say that once you start freezer paper stenciling you won’t be able to stop, man oh man is that true! I’m a total addict now.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
Stamping Object (I used everything from pens to chopsticks, try different things)
First you’ll need to cut out your stencil on the freezer paper. You can draw your design on the non-waxy side and then cut it out or use scrapbooking punches like I did. Next insert a piece of fabric paper into your onesie to protect it from the paint that might bleed through. Now you’re ready to iron on your stencil. Be sure to iron it waxy side down!
Lightly paint onto your stencil, don’t glob it on or it’ll bleed!
After it dries peel off your paper and embellish it with your “chains & beads”. This is where the pen caps and other objects come in. Be creative, take a chance, that’s often what comes out the best!
Once it’s completely dry iron it again to heat seal the paint. When you wash your finished piece I think it’s a good idea to turn it inside out. I’ve washed the one on Samster already and it came out just fine.
Don’t have time to make your own? Need a baby gift or a little glamour for your babe? I’ve made extras below from new Circo onesies and listed them in my etsy shop. The onesies are all size 3-6mths and the shirt is 12mths but if you’re interested in other sizes just email me and I’d be glad to do a custom order for you!
As always please let me know if you make this, I LOVE seeing pics!
