    Hi – how did you do the bands? I used bias binding tape on mine and it looks a bit home-made. My creation is basils_britches 1 if you wanted to take a look. I’d love to know what you did. Thanks.

    Thank you all!

    I used a thick fabric paint, like the one you would use for silkscreening or woodblock printing. Printable fabric paints are marked as such, the price is usually a bit (tiny little bit) higher than “normal” fabric paint, but it’s worth the extra money!

    Nice! Great idea to use lino cuts as stamps to decorate your fabric. What kind of paint did you use?

    I always enjoy it when people make baby clothes that are cool instead of cutesy. This is no exception.

    It’s great. Original idea for the little boy’s onesie.
