Default Stamping on onesies?

Hello all...

It's been a while since I've stamped anything! I'd like to do some stamping on some onesies for a baby gift. I know it's been done--any advice on what to use? Do I wash them first? Does the ink really stay on?

THANK YOU!!

I would suggest washing them first to pre shrink them and using stazon inks. HTH.

I would wash them to get the sizing out. Make sure you put a piece of cardboard or cut up a paper bag to go in between the two layers of cloth. Whatever ink you use I would heat set the image after you stamp.

Oh, I was just over at IndyAngel's house and she had a few onsies set out that she was working on. I believe that she used Pallette inks on the onsies. They were certainly adorable. I'll see if I can get her to come over here to this thread to see if she has any suggestions.

I'm already here Beth! Yes, I used the Palette inks. They are a hybrid ink--combines the "best of both pigment and dye inks into one inkpad." You definitely need to wash the garment first to remove the sizing and don't use fabric softener. I used a piece of chipboard between the layers and heat set it afterwards. Makes a quick, cute gift!

If you sprinkle the onsie with vinegar after the image dries, then heat it, the vinegar helps set the die. Any kind of pigment or permanent ink would work. I did this with Stampin Up Craft pads once. The only draw back was the I had to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the same image a couple of times to get it dark enough (I guess I could have just used a darker color to start with, too...)

This sounds so cool!
How do you heat set it though? Just iron it or is there a procedure to follow? I have a onesie and stazon, it could be a long night!

I'm guessing it's heated with a heat tool like what you'd use for embossing.

The iron will heat set the ink. Do NOT use the heat gun. That thing is way too hot and will set your onesie on fire

Here is the link to a tutorial that Melanie Muenchinger did on her blog using the Palette ink pad

The onesie is on the 3 page in case it did not show up

Wash and dry the onesies...no type of softener in either the washer (including in a detergent) or dryer.

Press freezer paper to the wrong side of the onesie (shiny side of paper against the fabric) to the area that will be stamped. The freezer paper is left in place until after stamping, heat setting and coloring (optional).

I use either Clearsnap Ancient Page or Crafters...other inks that are permanent when heat set also are suitable. NOTE: Pigment and die inks not labeled permament are NOT suitable.

After stamping, allow the ink to dry then heat set with either a heat gun or iron. If using an iron, place either a Teflon Pressing Sheet or piece of cooking parchment paper over the image when pressing; the iron should be heated to a cotton setting.

If coloring the image, use texile markers. The freezer paper will hold the fabric stable when coloring. When the markers are dry, heat set as directed above. NOTE: if coloring, it will be necessary to heat set the stamnped image AND the image after it has been colored.

Remove the freezer paper when all heat setting has been completed.

Do not launder for one week; launder inside out.

Below is the link to Nicole Heady's blog. She tells you how to monogram a onesie. Great info and great blog...I highly recommend checking out her techniques. Enjoy! Let us know how they turn out. My friend is due in April and I may be trying this as well. I would appreciate your feedback! Enjoy!

I just straight stamped with a craft ink and ironed.

well not really *that* easy!

I had stretched the lil shirtie onto a rather large piece of cardboard... (med pizza box I think! but with a stack of magazines inside to make it solid.)
I used a paintbrush and reinker ink to touch up/darken some letters and carefully clean the edges with q-tips to avoid straymarks.

it even worked on waffle underpants!
(I think I put a harry potter book in a brown paper bag and used that for stretching the undies!)

This is how I trained my 2 1/2 yr old ....
he got to wear his "monkey pee -
monkey poo" shirtie and undies when he used the potty.
what a treat!

when I've done a shirt for myself
I put the shirt on and put masking tape lines flat around stampable areas.
(I'm, ahem!, "contoured" let's say,
..... and all my t-shirts have stretch to them)

then I just stretched the shirt onto a board until that area was flat again and composed my design from there.
( no more letters or images unfortunately high or in under the 'shadow'....and worked great to cover spitup stains from when my son was new!lol!)

always line your shirt with something impermeable or you will have backwards writing on your back!

Where's a good place to get the palette inks? I have some but they are the little spots and kinda a pain to use on larger stamps. TIA!

You can use the Stampin' Up craft inks. After you have stamped your item, you can throw it in the dryer for 15-30min,that would set the ink. Definitely put cardboard in between the layers and wash and dry the onsie before stampin' on it, no softener

You can use iron-on transfer sheets, stamp on them with staz-on and the color with alcohol based markers (Prismacolor, copics, sharpies etc) and then stick it on the onsie

If you can't find Palette inks, use either Clearsnap Crafters or Clearsnap Ancient Page...be sure to heat set for permanancy.

I wanted to stamp on onsies but ended up making some stencils with my cricut and using fabric paint. They turned out great. I cut out designs that I knew wold work well and not to intricate. I did a star, heart, baby feet and micky head. I even cut out the baby's last name with my silhouette it looked like a sports jersey. Very cute

So tell me if I am right? If you are using stampin' up inks they have to be the crafters and not the classic ink? Does anyone know what happens if you use the classic ink?

Would using the Colorbox pigment ink be the same as SU craft ink?

There's nothing in a pigment ink that will provide permanancy on fabric that will be laundered...first wash, and it's good bye ink (there may be a slight image left, but it'll be gone in a couple more launderings).

Crafters Ink (either SU or Clearsnap) is formulated so that it is permanent on porous surfaces when heat set.

1) I read someplace in my ""need to know" how to stamp on fabric that Staz-on may cause the material to break down. Then again how long are the little kiddies in the onesies anyway. They grow so fast.

2) There are videos on Youtube to demonstrate how to do this. We all want to see your results. Good luck.

I found a video on Youtube where the lady drew directly onto Iron on T-shirt transfer paper and then ironed it to her onesies. I tried this with SU markers, Classic ink, sharpies and wax crayons- and it works! The transfer paper was for ink jet printers. The only problem was that there must be some kind of film on the paper because it would make the makrkers start to "dry up" until you scribbled on paper. I also used the Sharpie pen but the tip is a little too sharp and would rip through the paper. I love the way the onesies turned out!

Back in the 'old days' of stamping when only pigment and dye inks were available, people stamped with a pigment ink on fabric, sprinkled embossing powder over the image, then thermal embossed. You can imagine how difficult it was to get rid of the unwanted powder before hitting he image with heat. Another problem...those embossed images didn't do too well in a washing machine.

Sorry, while I've read of heat-setting pigment ink, the Clearsnap website bears Nancy out, stating that Crafters brand pigment ink has "something extra" allowing heat setting on fabric, etc.

hi, that sounds like a cute baby gift idea!

i altered a canvas tote by stamping it using Crafter's Ink. you could use the same techniques on the onsie, any fabric would work...

here's a link to the project: don't stress... distress!

Couple of questions ladies:

1. Would memento ink work?
2. Which gives a better result - in terms of appearance and durability:
a) stamping in ink (bold stamp)
b) coloring with fabric marker (outline stamp in ink)
c) using iron-on transfer paper

TIA!
