Dyed Baby Onesies!

Our Band Director is expecting twins any day now, a boy and a girl, so I made a few special outfits for them!













(This last one is the Marching Band logo, and I made three because that's how many come in a pack!)

Re: Dyed Baby Onesies!

These little projects are perfect for my current unmedicated state - they go fast, and there's plenty of time for naps in between each step!

Re: Dyed Baby Onesies!

You can do this with old cotton tee-shirts, too. I never remember to change clothes or put on an apron before I'm about to do something that will permanently stain fabric. Whether it's grease, or bleach, or dirt. . .any stain that won't come out in the wash can be made invisible with fabric paint or dye. If you want to try a dye that stays in but doesn't require all the prep or cleanup of regular fiber-reactive dye, you can get Dylon cold water fabric dye. Unlike RIT and some of the other cheap dyes, it actually stays in after you wash it.

As for paint, you can use regular acrylic craft paint with a textile additive (you can find it by the craft paints or the artists' acrylics.) Put paper inside the shirt so color doesn't bleed through to the other side. Dry for 24 hours. Set with a hot iron - lots of steam - and make sure the paper isn't newsprint, and put some throwaway cotton fabric between your art and the iron.

If you don't know how creative you can be, cut out shapes from contact paper, put them anywhere you don't want paint (make sure not to cover that stain you want to hide) and just sponge or spray or spatter all over the shirt. Peel off the contact paper before you iron!

Re: Dyed Baby Onesies!

Those are absolutely adorable!

I'm really impressed. I've seen a lot of hand-dyed t-shirts and stuff over the years, but even thought the basic technique is pretty easy, it takes a lot of skill for it to look really good.

And those look really, really good.

Re: Dyed Baby Onesies!

Aww, thanks! Honestly, I put very little planning into this, and my most creative accomplishments come from fixing stupid mistakes! The two with the stars and hearts happened because I tried a twisting method that turned the onesie into a ball, and then I dyed one color on the top and another on the bottom. I didn't pay attention to a couple of important rules - first, make sure that you don't twist the entire front side into the center of the ball. Second, start dyeing with the lighter color, and saturate the piece, then turn it over and add the darker color. Result: big blank white space in the center front. Oh, pooh. So I cut out little paper hearts and stars and played around until I got the shapes and sizes right to color the empty spaces (and the bit of black dye that got on one of them because I wasn't paying attention) and look like I planned them that way in the first place. Traced around them, mixed the paints, painted. I won't make the same mistake again. (I'll make a different one!)
