I thought it would be funny to put this quote onto a onesie for my daughter. There are lots of tutorials on the web where you can use freezer paper to iron on a template and then paint over it. I didn't have any freezer paper so decided to try using contact paper instead. For those of you who aren't familiar with contact paper, it's like a big vinyl sticker. I used my Cricut cut to cut the words and stuck the template onto the prewashed onesie.
Another thing I didn't have was fabric paint. I googled to try to find if I could use acrylic paint instead of fabric paint, but most websites didn't have an answer, so I decided to try it anyways. So can you use acrylic paint as a substitute for fabric paint? Yes! It worked out for my project. You want acrylic paint that is not too runny or else it will seep underneath your fabric.

|Remove backing from contact paper. Remember to save off the insides of the "e", "o", "b" etc.|
|Stick contact paper onto onesie. Rub the sticker on securely, especially on the edges.|
|Use fabric or acylic paint to paint on the letters. Make sure your paint is not too runny.|
|Pulling the contact paper off. Yay! Clean lines.|
|Be sure to iron on the paint to set it.|
