FREEZER PAPER SCREEN PRINTING

Since I’ve been pregnant, I’ve been unable to do actual real screen printing cause I’m supposed to avoid all those toxic screen printing chemicals. I guess it’s not good for your unborn child. Uggggh. But because I needed to make some really cute onesies for my soon-to-be rugrat, I figured I’d mcGruber it with Reynold’s Freezer Paper {plastic coated} and some fabric paint. The Reynold’s Freezer Paper was found at my local Ralph’s for under $4.

This is what I did.

First I came up with a design using Word cause I am not skilled or talented enough to design stuff using Photoshop. And yes, I’m really that computer illiterate.

I had my husband make a stencil of my design on the freezer paper using my Silhouette Cameo machine. Make sure the plastic coating is on the bottom.

I then ironed the stencil freezer paper onto my onesies using the dry cotton setting.

I inserted pieces of cardboard in between the onesies so the fabric paint wouldn’t bleed through and then painted onto the stencils.

I ended up using Pebeo fabric paints. I had purchased these at Aaron Brothers.

Depending on the fabric paint you’ve decided to use, I waited 24 hours before peeling off the freezer paper and then ironed the onesies on Dry Cotton setting to fix the image into the onesie so they can now be washed.
