Stick a Pin in it

posted on: Wednesday, February 29, 2012


Nesting has taken over my life.

I get up and organize. I sit down and think about organizing. I play with Brecken and organize. I go to sleep and I dream of organizing.

Dear Martha would be so proud of my homemaking skills.

I, however, forced myself to stop organizing on Saturday (it almost killed me) to spend some time making a few embellished shirts and onesies for Punk and Punkette.

 Delia from Delia Creates has a fun tutorial on how to use your kids artwork to decorate their clothes--it's a definite one to check out.

Within that same post she also shows readers how to use paper punches to create freezer paper stencils. It was such a fun idea that I had to make a few as well.

I have done quite a few projects with freezer paper in the past but her idea was by far the easiest...in case you were wondering.


 1. Always pre-wash onesies before embellishing them. These little guys are shrinkers and you don't want to ruin all your hard work!

2. I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch to cut butterflies out of freezer paper.

3. I then laid the shiny-side down and ironed each row of butterflies onto the onesie.

4. My favorite fabric paint. This color has a pearl hue to it so it made the butterflies sparkle.

5. Allow the paint to dry for 1-4 hours depending on how many coats you paint on (I used a foam brush to apply the paint).

6. Once finished use a towel/cheese clothe/or a piece of fabric and lay it over the top of the onesie, then iron so the color will "set in."

I got a little carried away and decided to make ten different shirts.

I know--I have a problem.
