Titi's Freezer Paper Stenciled Butterflies Onesie Tutorial

I’ve been wanting to make some fabric painting for a while. Actually ever since I saw Lauren’s Onsies {from the Thinking Closet}, I was eager to make one. Then I saw the cute little pink shark shirt by Hilary and Jessica from Domestic Bliss Squared which was made using Freezer paper… WHATTTT? I had no idea what that was. Was that a cooking paper? Or a craft paper? LOL. Then a few days later I saw Lauren’s Keep Calm Onesie and I said -That’s it! I have to buy that thing!!!- LOL… and guess what?.. I did and brought it to Oman in case I couldn’t find it {and BTW guess what again?… Here there is Freezer Paper Ugh! LOL}.

Since it was my first time using freezer paper I preferred making something simple for Emma and see how it would turn out. So, I chose some butterflies and her nickname =D.  The next one could be my beloved animal the owl LOL!

So here is how I made it!.

You need an onesie, freezer paper, fabric paint, tiny buttons and Sharpies.

The first thing I did was to draw a rough of how I would like the design to be on the onesie.

Then I made the design on my Silhouette just the way I liked it.

SIlhouette-Composition

I flipped the image before cutting because I place the wax facing up on the cutting mat.

I cut the design on my Silhouette and used the hook to remove the pieces of paper.

Then I placed the freezer paper on the front of the onesie and ironed it carefully.

Once done, I placed a piece of cardboard inside the onesie so the paint doesn’t leave marks on the back.

I secured all the onesie remain with tape =P

And finally started painting!!! I used Tulip fabric paint. I used to use it when I was like 14 LOL to paint Disney’s T-shirt.

I started with the Butterflies in 2 different shades of pink.

And then the word Titi. I mixed the colors so I could get those I wanted.

I left it to dry. I followed the Domestic Bliss Squared advise to let the paint dry very well. So I waited like 2 hours or so and then pealed the freezer paper very carefully.

I decorated the butterflies with some tiny green buttons as the heads.
