|The happy recipient|
Since I was bringing over some of my weapon pillows for my cousins, I figured the newest addition to our family should also get a little something uniquely made. Why not a baby romper....with a throwing star or with my dad's face on it. A perfect baby gift, right? Ok, I thought so, my mother wasn't so sure. But honestly, she should be happy I put her idea (with a few tweaks) to actual use. : ) Just don't throw the baby.
Ok, the skinny on the how to:
- Buy blank baby clothing in the right size and season for your intended baby
- Take it home and prewash it
- Make a screen that you would like to print or use one you have already made (in this case, I recycled the throwing star screen and my dad's face screen from another project)
- Cut out a shape on fabric - patches with adhesive backing work especially well- that you would like to use (either using scissors or a die cut machine)
- Screen print on to the baby shirt; let dry
- If you didn't use a fusible fabric as your shape, use magic binding tape; Iron shapes to shirt where appropriate.
- Tada! You are finished. Adorn your baby and be happy!
