New Baby Gift




I am taking an online class from Heather called Simply Babies. She does a lot of online punch art classes but this class focused on baby stuff. It's a great class. I am finding that a lot of the projects she posts for the class can be used for other ocassions. One of the projects she posted for the class was this box with a window (transparency) that can hold a set of onesies. I made this set for my friend Eva who is having a baby soon. She loves penguins and I stamped the onesies using a Memory Box penguin stamp. Then I colored it with Copic markers. I found several tutorials online for stamping on fabric, but the one I followed said to stamp in black Brilliance ink and then set with a heat tool. While the fabric is still warm, color with the Copics (helps the color to spread a bit). The tutorial said the ink was permanent, she said she washed the onesies in warm water with bleach and the color didn't come out! So I'm taking her word for it and hoping that's true!
