Happy Thursday everyone!  I hope you are having a fabulous week so far!   I am kind of almost giddy to share this project with you today!  I heart it.  I heart it with cherries on top!  Let me introduce you to this super cute, funny stenciled onesie!

My BFF {RG} is having a baby in September!  This new little one will be her THIRD boy, so I wanted to make something fun and giggly for this little guy.  What do you think??

Freshly Squeezed Newborn Onesie

I couldn’t find any solid colored onesies….so I dyed this myself!  More on that experience later!  But here is a step-by-step on how I made this cute design on the shirt!

Freshly Squeezed Newborn Onesie - Silhouette

I started off by making a citrus slice in Silhouette Studio (I have designer edition but you can still totally do this without it!)  and I placed my words (font: Grilled Cheese) where I wanted them.  I made sure to leave room around the edges so that it would be, in fact, a stencil!

Then I let Cammie cut out my stencil and used the hook tool to weed out all the vinyl that I wanted to fill with the fabric ink!

Now I am left with my stencil!

Next, I applied the clear transfer paper over top of the stencil to keep the centers of the citrus slice and the letters (e’s and q) in their correct place!

Placing the Stencil on my Onesie

(it’s hard to tell but that is clear transfer paper overtop the stencil vinyl)  Place your stencil where you want it on your onesie!    Now Carefully remove the transfer paper!

Removing the Transfer Paper

Now you are left with your stencil in place!  Next, let’s get inking!  The Fabric Ink Starter Kit comes with black ink…which works out great in my case!


I used the foam brush that’s also included and made sure to get all the edges very well.  Especially in between the citrus sections!

Applying the Fabric Ink

I let it dry and then removed the stencil vinyl.  Then I used a warm iron to set the ink (not pictured!)  Here you have it!  A super cute and kind of funny onesie for the new little baby cakes!  The fabric ink is machine washable!

A foam brush, a paint tray, black fabric ink, stencil vinyl with clear transfer paper, a hook tool, a sponge and a instructional DVD, Idea/How-to book and a download card with some designs to get you started!

The instructional book has this great color wheel that tells you how to mix all the colors to make new ones!  I really, really have to get some more colors!  Oh the possibilities!  :)  I have about 7 more cute baby onesie ideas in my head that I have to try out!

A big thanks to Silhouette for sending me the Starter Kit to play with!  I love it and it was so easy and fun to use.  I am inspired to make so much more!

What are some of your favorite “sayings” on children’s clothing?  I have a few for the boys that I love, but would love to hear yours!
