I hope you caught my blog post yesterday with a review of Stencil 101 by Ed Roth and a contest to win some fabric paint! Yesterday I showed you how to use the stencils to adorn a skirt and blouse. Today we are continuing our series on onesies and I wanted to show you what kind of magic these bad boys can do to make custom baby clothes. If you are tuning in for the first time be sure and refer back in this 6 week series. We have covered embroidery, personalized appliqués, internet favorites and how to host a onesie making party. These pictures are actually from the same party and give you another idea about Lil’ Whips wardrobe.
There are many perks to owning a copy of Stencil 101. First of all the stencil options are not hideously ugly like most stencils at the craft store. I hate to be that way but I didn’t want a onesie with a Fleur de Lis or roses. I want my baby to wear sumo wrestlers, boom boxes, cassette tapes and Super 8 cameras. Thank God the girls at my onesie making party agreed. The second bonus about the stencils is that there is a myriad of ways to apply them. Some of the girls opted for fabric paint while others went with fabric makers a few even opted for pastels especially made for fabric.
Erin’s fawn and Cory’s camera hang on the line to dry completely. I recommend letting the onesies dry for 48 hours and then going over them with a hot iron or running them in your dryer for 30 minutes. Be sure to wash them inside out!
Not to play favorites, but I think the Raised in Craftivity Onesie by Karly was the stenciled onesie I was most smitten on. Karly used the ape from Stencil 101 and black Tulip fabric paint and embellished with a catchy slogan using Crafty Chica fabric markers.
P.S. Thanks again to Cory Ryan for the extra pictures (the pretty ones).
