Painted Necklace Onesie

I was to excited throughout this project to stop and take pictures, so I'll just explain how it all went down!

Using regular acrylic paint, and the ends of three different sized paint brushes, I dipped the brush end into the paint and stamped it onto the shirt (make sure you put a piece of cardboard inside the shirt so the paint doesn't bleed through the back). Pretty simple huh? After it dried I did one more coat for good measure!
 (Sorry no tutorial for the ruffly bum this time)
 The flower is also detachable so you can take it off when you wash the shirt.

After your paint has dried completely, lay a brown paper bag or parchment paper over the pained area and iron it. It kind of heat sets it....(melts the paint a little & helps it stay on the shirt better).

Now go make about a million of these adorable little shirts, even if you don't have a little me! You will have very happy little niece's!
