DIY Baby Onesie Using a Cricut Explore Air 2, Stencil Vinyl, Fabric Paint and New Designs by Paislee Press

Hi friends, I'm so excited to be sharing this super fun, different sort of project... Many of you already know that my husband and I are adopting a child.  As a result, I've been in nesting mode lately, gathering and making things for a baby. Since we don't know yet whether we will be having a boy or a girl, I've been collecting gender neutral items.

When Liz over at Paislee Press released the Scenic Route collection, I was immediately enamored with it.  I'm so excited to use it in my pocket page scrapbook and digital scrapbook pages, but first, I just had to use it to make some baby onesies!

With a little text advice from my sweet friend Emily (Desk of Confetti), I used my Cricut Explore Air 2 machine to kiss cut Liz's designs out on stencil vinyl.  The vinyl is adhesive so after weeding the design on the cutting mat, I peeled the backing off the stencil, adhered it to a pre-washed onesie and slid a piece of chipboard between the layers of the onesie.  Next, I used a foam brush to apply black fabric paint.  I allowed the onesies to dry for 24 hours, then carefully peeled the stencil vinyl away.  Next, I used a pressing cloth and iron set the paint on the onesie.  

I just love how cute these are and know I'll be making more soon!
