- Plain baby bib
- Red, white, and blue printed fabric scrap
- Fusible webbing
- Cut a piece of lightweight fusible webbing to fit the backside of the red, white and blue fabric. Use a dry hot iron to adhere the webbing to the fabric. (Make sure you follow the instructions for the brand of webbing you purchase).
- Keeping the paper portion of the webbing attached, cut 3 stars from the fabric. Peel the paper from the back and place the design in the desired position on the bib. Attach with a dry hot iron by ironing over the fabric appliqué on the right side of the fabric.
- Slide a piece of cardboard under the bib. Seal the edges of the fabric stars with dimensional fabric paint. Paint around the stars making sure you get each edge.
- Allow the paint to dry overnight.
Stars and Stripes - Baby T-Shirt
- Place a piece of wax paper inside the t-shirt to prevent the paint from bleeding through. Working on the lower portion of the t-shirt, apply a strip of blue painters tape across the t-shirt at the point where you want your stripes to begin. Apply more strips of tape in an up-and-down fashion across the t-shirt to mask off where the paint won’t hit.
- Working with a foam paintbrush, apply the red paint to the stripes section. Working with a semi dry brush will help prevent paint from seeping under the tape.
- Apply the blue paint to the foam stamp with a paintbrush. Press the stamp in 3 spot on the upper portion of the t-shirt. Press firmly and gently lift. Reload the paint as needed.
- Allow the paint to dry and heat set with an iron.
