This past weekend while celebrating Easter my sister came in to town with a project in mind. She wanted to create painted onesie's for a baby shower that she's helping to throw. The party guests plan to each make one. So, we set out to make some examples and use them as possible party decorations. How cute would these be hanging up on a little clothesline on the wall?
If you want great results painting, especially with any sort of lettering on the shirt, your best friend is freezer paper. Freezer paper is awesome. You can use your computer printer and print your image and wording directly on the freezer paper and cut it out. Use the negative space as the stencil and iron it on to the shirt. Now you have a stencil that will produce a crisp image. Time for the fun part, painting. To paint the shirt you will need to use fabric paint. Once it is dry you can remove the stencil and see a cute little shirt.
