Create a fun clothing item to welcome a new baby to the world, by drawing a ladybug on an ordinary pink baby-grow.
Approximate Time: 40 minutes
- design included in photo 1 or any other design of your choice
- a pink baby-grow ~ I used one for a baby of 0-3 months.
- Artline 750 laundry marker
- Pentel Fabric Fun pastel dye sticks
- piece of old cardboard
- a sheet of unprinted paper
- iron and ironing board
- Before starting with the design project, wash the baby-grow in baby shampoo and rinse it thoroughly in cold water to remove any sizing agent from the material. Do not add fabric softener.
- Allow the baby-grow to dry thoroughly and iron it lightly to remove any wrinkles from the material.
- If necessary, resize the design and then print it out.
- Put the baby-grow flat on the working surface.
- Slide a sheet of cardboard inside the baby-grow, between the back and front sides of the baby-grow, this will prevent the ink from staining the back side. Keep this cardboard in place until you have ironed the design.
- Put the printed design on top of the cardboard, underneath the front side of the baby-grow, so that the design will show through on the front side.
- Trace the design with a pencil first.
- Now draw the design with the Artline laundry marker.
- Add some color to the design: color the bug's wings red; its body and hands yellow; the stem of the flower green; the inside of the flower orange; and add some white and yellow to the flower petals.
- Give the bug and the flower some rosy cheeks.
- Cover the design with a sheet of unprinted paper and iron it to set the dyes.
