steps

  1. Using stencil tape, tape off any areas you do not want painted (ie. collar). Cut your stencil down to the desired design, then position and tape to the onesie.

  2. Combine one-part fabric medium and two-parts Sweet Potato in a small bowl. With a stencil brush, pounce the paint mixture over the stencil design. (Tip: The brush should be fairly dry, be sure to blot excess paint onto a paper towel before each application).

  3. Once the first section is complete, align your stencil to the next section and continue to pounce paint onto the stencil; let dry completely.

  4. To make the pineapple leaves, cut out a series of leaves from green felt and hot-glue onto headband in layers.
