Have you heard of the website Totally Tutorials? It is an awesome website that features, well you guessed it, tutorials. They also do a fun product exchange on their website as well, where company's will give some free product to craft blogger's and in return we blog about our experience with them, Well I was lucky enough to be chosen to get to play with some super fun Simply Spray. I originally was going to use this simple spray to make personalized onesies as a baby shower activity. But life happened and changed my plans. So instead I did a baby craft night with a bunch of lovely ladies. my past few posts have been other crafts we did that night as well. And if you have read those post you will know that I forgot my camera and had to use my mothers and getting pictures from hew has been a it of a challenge. Well I finally have some pictures so here we goooooooooo.
Here is an example of what simple spray can do. I used it to paint this cute little helmet onto the bum of a onesie.
here). But I didn't think these were important so I had to learn my lesson the hard way.
First there are some other supplies you will need besides simply spray and a onesie (or shirt or whatever you want to paint).
freezer paper (you can find this next to the aluminium foil at the grocery store)
Step 1- Choose what shape you want to work with and trace it onto the paper side of the freezer paper. Cut this shape out with an x-acto knife.
Step 2- Place the shape on you onesie where you want it to be and iron it on. (hot dry iron about 8-10 sec)
Step 5- Wait an hour for it to dry, peel the freezer paper off and voila!
FYI I love love love the yellow polka-dot one.
There are a few other things you can do with the simple spray as well. You can tye-dye with it.
You can mix the paint colors. (Just make sure you let them dry long enough or they will bleed.)
Or you could do it as a resist.
1-Pre-cut out shapes to save time.
2- Have a really large work area with lots and lots of newspapers.
3- Make sure you have every one's attention as you explain how to do it and show them what happens if they don't do it correctly. (I would also leave a few instructions/tips sheets around the area they could refer to for help)
4- I wouldn't suggest tye-dye or color mixing because of time constraints.
5- Have fun and be creative!!! And at the end hang up all the onsies on a "clothes line" to show them off.
Here are a couple of pictures of people working on onesies at the craft night the other night.
