Stamped Baby Onsie

Handmade gifts are always the most special. And while you may not be able to sew your own baby onesie for your sister/cousin/ (insert pregnant person here) you can customize one with, wait for it, rubber stamps! (and if you can sew one, you are my idol!)

Felicette's ink pads are multi-purpose which means in addition to paper, you can use them on fabric, wood, clay, and glossy surfaces. You will need to heat set them on fabric and glossy surfaces. Picture this craft at a baby shower! Have an assorted set of stamps and ink pads a bunch of onesies in different sizes and you have a party!

Or you can make a custom layette set, stamp a onesie, a hat, blanket, and burp cloth for a beautiful gift. 

You'll need
A Baby Onesie
Best in Show Rubber Stamp Kit
Mini Ink Pad Set
An Iron

Select your colors and stamps. I did all of the dogs in Nebula, the Ribbon in Orion, and the trophy in Super Nova. I prefer the mini ink pads for this project because it allows you to put just the right amount of ink on and not over ink it. To use the mini pads with the larger stamps you gently tap the ink pad onto the surface of the stamp. I have a tutorial here, on how to use the mini pads. 

I stared stamping with the dogs, and then filled in with the trophy and ribbon. 

Once you are finished stamping let the ink dry for a few minutes, just to be safe and then heat set with an iron. Set your iron on cotton and iron for about 15 seconds. This will make the ink permanent. And now you are done!
