This week my friend Kristyn over at the Lil' Luna Blog is doing a Keep Calm and Carry On themed week. She has tons of free printables up for grabs on her blog! Go check them out! They are all so cute!
I am kinda obsessed with the original Keep Calm and Carry On posters, but Kristyn kinda sparked an idea in my head...
My baby just took her first steps last week so I thought it would be fun to make her a little Keep Calm onsie- Walking style. Here is what I came up with.
It works well for boys or girls I think!
So here is how I did it. I made the Keep Calm and Walk On part on my computer and then printed it out on freezer paper and cut it out with an exacto knife. (I don't have a fancy cutting machine)
Then I ironed the freezer paper to the onsie.
Next, slide something into the onsie so that the paint doesn't leak to the layer below.
Supplies: I got this fabric paint at Walmart in the craft section. And I used a q-tip to paint onto the shirt, since the lettering is so small and it worked great!
Then I put a very thin layer of paint onto the part that needed to be red.
Now for this next tip.....
Learn from my mistake!
Don't turn your back for even a minute when you have a "little helper" nearby!
Or you might have to do this project twice like I did! ha ha
Once it dries really well, pull off the freezer paper and you are all done!
You could also do this project with iron on transfer paper and it would look really great!
I would be happy to share this Keep Calm and Walk On print out with anyone that would like a copy to do this project.... Just leave a comment with your email address and I will email it to you:)
P.S. It is sized 5 x 7 so that it fits on my onsie but you could resize it to any size.
