DIY Nerdy Baby Onesies

Courtney Tomesch DIY Nerdy Baby Onesies
     In January my Uncle Matt and Aunt Casey had another baby. She is my 7th cousin and the cutest ever! When I found out they were having another baby, I though I had to make the baby something nerdy! I thought DIY onesies would be cute. I have fabric paint but only in black and it would cost a lot of money to buy different color fabric paints. I saw on a DIY channel someone using fabric medium that makes any paint into fabric paint. I thought this DIY would be a perfect way to try it. I first way I tried to make these onesies was trace everything than hand paint it. But that turned out very difficult for me I can't paint a straight line. I found out about how you can use freezer paper to make a stencil and that made life so much easier. The Freezer paper can be hard to find I found it by the zip lock bags or you can buy it HERE from Amazon. I love how they all turned out and my cousin looks the cutest in them!! If you make any tag me on Instagram and Twitter @courtneytomesch and use #courtneytomesch so I can see a like your photos!

**Black Widow, Captain America Shield, Let the Wild Rumpus Start and Star Wars were hand painted**

1. Find what you want to make into a design and print out (you can also hand draw anything you want)
2. Trace onto freezer paper make sure waxy side is facing down.
3. Cut out the part of the design that you want to be paint.
4. Put wax side of freezer paper onto fabric
5. Use iron with no steam to seal freezer paper to fabric
6. Mix fabric medium with paint. Follow directions on medium. The Martha Stewart Fabric Medium is 1 part medium to 2 parts paint.
8. Put a cardboard in the shirt so the paint does not bleed to the other side.
7. Use a sponge to spounce paint onto fabric. Make sure to keep the sponge up and down so the paint do not bleed under the freezer paper.
8. I let paint dry for a few minutes then remove freeze paper.
9. Let air-dry completely for 24 hours.
10. Heat set before washing. (I throw in dryer for a few minutes)
*Care wash inside out with cold water.*
