Primary TechniquePainting




  • White short-sleeved vest for baby 3-6 months of age
  • Giotto Decor Textile pens: red; green; black; ultramarine blue; neon pink and neon yellow
  • Acrilex Acrilpens: 565 Vinho (purple) and 517 Laranja (orange)
  • Pilot silver marker pen
  • 2” heart-shaped cookie cutter
  • Pencil
  • Baby shampoo
  • A5 piece of left-over cardstock
  • Iron and ironing board



  1. Wash the vest in baby shampoo and rinse it thoroughly in cold water. Do not add fabric softener.
  2. Allow the vest to dry thoroughly and iron it lightly.
  3. Put the vest flat on the working surface. Slide the piece of cardstock inside the vest, between the back and front sides of the vest to prevent the ink from staining the back side.
  4. Place the cookie cutter on the front of the vest and use the pencil to trace all around it. Repeat until you have filled the front of the vest with eight random pencil hearts.

  5. Start with the first heart and the neon yellow Giotto pen. Trace the outline with the pen and then color the heart with the yellow pen. Allow to dry thoroughly.
  6. Color the rest of the hearts, using red; green; ultramarine blue; neon pink; purple and orange for one heart each. Color the last heart with the neon yellow Giotto pen again.

  7. Use the black Giotto pen and the silver marker pen to add some detail to the hearts.

  8. Iron the design to set the inks.
