  1. I’ve used fabric paint before, usually for helping to adhere fabric appliques or for accenting an ornament.

  3. I haven’t worked with fabric paint, yet, but I’m dying to!

    I have altered baby snapsits before, with iron-ons!


  4. manderley@meettheswains.org says:

    I LOVE fabric paint! I’ve done lots of t-shirts and even added small amounts of fabric paint to formalwear in place of beadwork or to help glue on beadwork. I love it for costuming too!


  5. wooo hooo , am I the first??? (= I did alter a few for the twins, but did the iron-on thing… would have loved the creativity of paints.. hehe this is an awesome giveaway..

  6. I have never altered a baby suit, but I have used fabric paint!

  7. I not only have altered a baby suit but I just fabric painted my white keds to look more like “me”

  8. Because of your post last week, it got me thinking about all the Plaid fabric paint I have in my art studio (originally for One Stroke painting)

    So, this weekend I went out & picked up some baby one suits, so I could paint on them.

    I’m super excited, I’m going to be an Aunt for the first time in June, so I’ve got to get busy with all these plain, white, baby one suits!

    I can’t wait for your book to come out – I need more ideas!

  9. I’ve used fabric paint before for some project that I gave away as gifts. This prize set looks like it could be a lot of fun and possiblites. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Wow, another great give away!
    I’ve used fabric paint for lots of projects. My kids like to help and make their own cute creations too.

  11. WOW, I am a new Grandma, and all my past dabbling in way too many different crafts, have all turned around, and have new meaning, I have a little Grandaughter to make things for. Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway!!!


  12. I have actually gone the other way (just like me to do it backward) I have taken the super cute embroidery from a snappy and recycled it by sewing it onto a pillow using it as a patch!
    Stefanie Girard

  13. I haven’t tried using paint for any onsie’s yet, but I have used the fabric paint markers. I have used the spray paint type fabric paints with stencils to leave a messy look around the edges, but I need to play with it a little more until I really like it.


  14. Hi, I have never done any baby suits, but I have used fabric paint. My daughter and son n law are going to try to get pregnant this year, so I will definatly be using baby suits when they give me a grandbaby.
    Thank, Beth

  15. i’ve used fabric paint for my kids halloween bags it was fun and the kids love to help …. thanks for the giveaway…..

  16. I have never altered a baby snap suit, but I have used fabric paint. I have made halloween shirts with eyeballs all over them using reverse applique. I also love the freezer paper stencil method and have used that a handful of times to make plain shirts more interesting.


  17. All the babies are just so darn cute!

    I have used fabric paint once to paint on trick-or-treat bags.

  18. I have never altered a baby bodysuit, or baby anything or have I ever used fabric paint. I would love to do it though, I’ve seen so many cute printed onesies that could easily be created.

  19. I’ve never altered a snapsuit. I have used fabric paint. I remember using fabric crayons at my birthday sleepover. We decorated pillowcases.

    I want to start doing some fabric crafts with my son. We’ve got some Monster Trucks that would make great wheel patterns! I also have two new babies in the family. Something original would be cute.

  20. I have used fabric paint and I have altered baby snap suits…put together a little kit for the family years ago and we made a new ‘wardrobe’ for my niece. Really fun! Thanks for the opportunity!

  21. LOVe fabric paint! But altering a snapsuit? Not YET! Can’t wait to read the book!!

  22. I have never used fabric paint or altered a snapsuit but I would love to try!!!

  23. rychlik.family@gmail.com says:

    I alter onesies and plain bibs with paint and iron ons.


  24. I have done both. I have put iron on transfers of original artwork on a few snap suits. I’ve also drawn on them with fabric markers. I like to use fabric paint on my home made birthday goody bags and felt board stories.

  25. I love refashioning snap suits for my little girl and for gifts for friends. It is so fun to try out different techniques to alter them! thanks for the awesome giveaway!


  26. I have made iron ons of my own design on some snap suits and made little skirts to match with ruffles on the sleeves. A themed outfit.

  27. I went on a snap suit altering spree right before my son was born. All I did was print up some cute images onto iron on sheet and iron them onto the suits. They didn’t hold up too well though since baby clothes get washed way more often than regular clothes do.

  28. what a great giveaway! i’ve done tons of iron-ons, but never used fabric paint. sounds fun!


  29. I’ve never fabric painted before but I’m willing to give it a shot! You have the cutest ideas!!

  30. I just had a baby and have dyed alot of his stuff, but have not had the chance to paint yet! I really want to thought… Love the book, and the ideas!


  31. Cathie, I have never done painting on a baby onesies but have painted with acrylic paint on baby shirts for friends. Usually this is done to cover up stains and make the shirts last. I used to paint shirts and give them away to friends as gifts, also paint shirts for my daughters when they were younger and again I used acrylic paints and brushes. I love to create shirts, right now I am in the process of painting bibs for a friend who is expecting within the next two months. Alas no grandchildren for me yet just granddogs! I haven’t painted anything for them to wear yet, but I might have to soon! Love the idea of having a book to get ideas from!
    Aloha,Debbi Miller

  32. I have with iron-ons – what cute ideas you’ve shared, thank you!

  33. Hi Cathie!

    I love Folk Art Fabric paint! I have painted on lots of shirts… but never a snapsuit… would love the inspiration to do so!


  34. I did some fabric painting on a Halloween costume when I was little with my sisters… we were “punk rockers” and it mainly involved dribbling paint everywhere, but it was a lot of fun!

  35. I alter snap suits as baby gifts all the time by sewing on fabric swatches. Fabric paint is fun but I also like to add fabric medium to acrylic to get more colors.

  36. I have used the iron-ons to alter snap suits then had to use fabric paint to fix some faulty iron ons. After fixing a couple I decided to just use the fabric paint and get creative! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. i haven’t altered any snapsuits but i have painted on a few t-shirts. i am also getting supplies ready to do some painting on canvas fabric. i have seen some wonderful accessories and embellishments painted on canvas and wnat to give it a try. your blog candy is fantastic. hillikayathotmaildotcom

  38. I have altered a snapsuit by tie-dying it magenta and pulling up little twists all over that turned out to look like little flowers on it when it was finished… quite cute! This giveaway set will be great to make a ton of cute snapsuits! Thank you!

  39. I’ve altered a snapsuit by appliqueing to the front. I tried some paint for Valentine’s shirts…they were terrible. It was spray fabric paint, and I think I would have been successful with the regular bottle and brush style. Maybe I could win a fabulous prize and try it out!

  40. I’ve used – and still use fabric paint. It was my mom who taught me how when I was a kid. Today, I still customize plain t-shirts or even plushies with fabric paint for that personal touch. Thank for such a wonderful giveaway!

  41. I haven’t worked with fabric paint before but love the idea. I just made a ruffle-bum onesie for a friend having a girl. I have a 4mo oldboy and would love to create something fun for him

  42. I’ve used fabric paint, but can’t get the stigma of late 80’s puff paint out of my head. would love to try some of the newer products

  43. FUN! Yes, I have altered a onsie before, using fabric paint and rubber stamps, we made them at my baby shower. I love the ones you make and would love to try it out, before my baby gets too big!

  44. What a great giveaway! My very first craft sale was a onesie that I had crossed stitched a cute little strawberry on. Adorable. Would love to try your techniques, even though my babies are teenagers now!

  45. I have used puff paints to decorate canvas bags for my nana thats in an assisted living home.

  46. I’ve not done any of this, but it looks like a blast! What fun and what a wonderfully generous giveaway!!!



  47. omg super amazing prize pack alert!!! i really hope i win, i love painting on pretty much anything i can get my hands on!

  48. I’ve never worked with a baby snapsuit before but it looks like so much fun! I’m a long time lover/user of fabric paint — the love affair started in 4th grade when we designed t-shirts for Earth Day and I never stopped ๐Ÿ™‚ My favorite thing to do these days is mix iron-on graphics with fabric paint and glitter…or sometimes spraypaint over textured/patterned stencils! I’m currently in college and hoping to turn my love of design into a career. Wish me luck!

  49. I’ve done/used both. One time I went to a baby shower where we decorated the little baby outfits with fabric paints. It was a lot of fun for us and for the mom since she had so many unique shirts for her little one.

  50. I have done several different variations of baby outfits. I like using freezer paper to use as a stencil. Fabric paint is great. We did a onesie party for my friends baby shower using all this fun stuff. She enjoyed it and we enjoyed making them.

  51. I’ve used fabric paint but never Plaid brand. I’m always looking for a brand that stays soft yet has good coverage.


  52. I have used fabric paint, but unfortunately didn’t start crafting until my little one was too big to wear onsies. Thanks for all the inspiration and ideas.


  53. I have done some fabric painting. One year when my kids were little we did painted pillow cases as the craft at my daughters birthday party. The kids had a ball and went home with a fun and useful project.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win these great supplies.

  54. I have used fabric paint and iron-ons on toddler clothing. I am looking forward to making cute onesies for all my friends that are expecting. What a great give-away! Thanks for the chance to win ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. When my duaghter was a baby, I used to decorate those little onesies all the time! I wish mine had been as cute as the ones you have done. Isn’t fabric paint the best ever?

  56. I have never done either one but since I found out I’m going to be an aunt again . . . I think I have the excuse to try this out!

  66. Jennifer F B says:
