Sometimes when I get my mind set on something there really is nothing that will stop me from doing whatever it is that I am thinking of. This can sometimes be a small problem. Take my latest baby clothing obsession for example. I have been OBSESSED with printed baby leggings. I am a weirdo and could not stop thinking about them all weekend long. I figured it could not be too hard to create my own pair of leggings for Ronin so I headed off to the craft store. I decided to just "wing it." I bought fabric spray paint, a few other supplies and headed home. I ripped open the first package of leggings and began to spray paint over my stencil. BAD idea. Turns out fabric spray paint might just be the worst invention ever...at least for what I was trying to accomplish. I ended up with little black splotches all over the leggings. So back to the craft store I went and picked up what I should have got in the first place...regular fabric paint.
This is seriously so easy and the pattern ideas you can do are endless.
- Baby leggings. I found mine on clearance at Target.
- Fabric paint. I used Tulip Soft Matte in Ebony.
- A stencil. If you can't find one you love you can make your own using parchment paper and an exacto knife.
Here is what you do...
Continue to add the pattern all the way down. After you are finished with the front, wait an hour for the paint to dry and then do the back. Let the paint dry for 4 hours and then wash after 72 hours. Read the back of your paint bottle for further instructions.
