DIY funny baby grows

These are sure to please everyone, not just baby!

A hand-painted, funny babygrow makes a lovely, personal gift for any infant – and will go down well with the parents, too! Giving something unique tells people just how much they mean to you – and besides, from the parents’ point of view, you can never have too many bodysuits in those first few months! Adding the design is simple and straightforward when you use edding textile products. There are two stroke widths and a range of 20 colours to choose from, including neon shades for a particularly vibrant effect. All you need to do is think up a suitable motif, make a template, pick your favourite colours – and away you go. Once you’ve finished painting, we recommend ironing your motif on the no-steam setting. This heat-fixes the ink and makes the garment washable up to 60°C.
