What You'll Need
- cotton baby onesie
- free printable PDF stencil
- freezer paper
- craft knife
- cutting mat
- ironing board
- washable fabric paint
- foam brush
Wash and Dry Onesie
Wash and dry onesie with baby-safe detergent before you start.
Print and Cut Template
Print out the free PDF mountain template. Tape to cutting mat. Cover with a sheet of freezer paper, shiny-side down. Cut negative space of mountain pattern out of freezer paper.
Iron on Stencil
Place the freezer paper on the onesie where you'd like to add the stenciled pattern. Heat iron to medium heat, then iron until stencil is firmly affixed to the onesie.
Add Fabric Paint
Add a sheet of paper or cardboard between the two sides of the onesie to keep the back of the outfit free of paint. Using a foam brush, apply paint in the negative space of the design. Apply paint using a straight-down motion in thin, even coats. Let dry completely, then add a second coat, if necessary.
When the paint is completely dry, peel off freezer paper stencil. To make the design washable, heat-set it according to the fabric paint label instructions.
