Wash the babygrow beforehand, leave to dry and iron to remove any creases. Make sure you have all your materials to hand before you start. You can see everything you need at a glance in our photo. Insert the cardboard inside the garment to ensure the ink doesn’t bleed through the fabric.
First think up a suitable motif you like and make a template. Place the template under the top layer of fabric over the piece of cardboard, so that the motif shows through.
Now copy the design straight onto the fabric using the pale green textile pen (colour 034) and colour it in. Once you’ve finished your design, we recommend you iron the fabric to set the ink. The garment will then be able to withstand wash cycles of up to 60°C.
