Titi’s Freezer Paper Stenciled Butterflies Onesie!

I’m truly in love with this Stenciled Butterflies Onesie. Em and I love Butterflies and I was eager to use for the first time freezer paper. So this was the perfect way to mix it all don’t you think?

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.


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.

Yayyyyy it’s almost done!

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

And the final touch was painting the antennas with a bronze metallic Sharpie!

  6. Your daughter is beautiful! Love the tutorial! One question, will the Sharpie marker ink washout over time? I’ve never thought to draw on fabric with a Sharpie. Thanks!
