Ages: Newborn and up
Celebrate a new arrival by making her this ultrasweet baby tee, easily printed with a piece of fruit dipped in fabric paint. After you've made your mark, give it a personal touch by writing Baby's name across the front with rubber stamps.
Insert the cardboard into the shirt to prevent the paint from bleeding through.
Cut the fruit in half, then blot the surface with a paper towel.
Squeeze some fabric paint onto a paper plate. Brush the paint onto the cut surface of the fruit, then firmly press it onto the front of the shirt. Use your fingertip to press down the stem.
Use a small brush or a cotton swab to add details, such as seeds, or to touch up any blotchy spots.
Now brush a very thin layer of paint onto the second paper plate (add a drop of water if the paint dries too quickly). Using the rubber stamps, print the baby's name on the shirt.
Let the shirt dry, then heat-set the fabric paint according to the manufacturer's directions.
