Will You Be My Valentine?
I love the idea of celebrating love on Valentine's Day- I wanted Auden to dress up for the occasion. After a few internet searches for the perfect outfit preferably covered in hearts I was unable to find anything that I liked or that would fit her. She is in a weird stage right now- not quiet a newborn but not fitting in all of her 0-3 month clothing. So I began thinking let's just paint one of her white onesies. This is a quick how to for any upcoming occasions or celebrations to make your little one festive.
1. Gather your materials and supplies.
For this project I used simple acrylic paint that I used to paint canvas with; however they do sell fabric paint if you wish to wash it multiple times. I have painted T-shirts with normal acrylic paint and it does hold up in the wash. I also grabbed a variety of paint brushes to test the thickness of the heart. You will also need a piece of cardboard to place in between the onesie to keep the paint from seeping through. I also have a small container of water to thin out the paint.
2. Decide on a design.
I sketched out two designs and decided on the simple one heart design. Ideating on paper will help you have a strategy before you begin painting.
3. Have FUN!
There are no mistakes- I did draw out the design before I began to paint in order to make sure I was maintain the heart shape.
4. Work it girl!
I love capturing my little love nugget in her new attire.
