To do this project, you'll need white 100% cotton baby onesies and fabric spray paint in your color choice.
I also ironed on a freezer paper stencil of a bird on one of my baby onesies to create a resist, so when removed it would leave a white bird.
Next, you simply scrunch up your fabric. The way you scrunch it up will determine the way your tie dye baby clothes turn out. Onesies are pretty small so it is difficult to get something too fancy like you can with traditional tie dye methods. It will likely be sort of a random dye look.
Next, spray your onesies! Follow the instructions on the can and use sweeping movements to get a nice even color. It helps to start spraying off the shirt on a paper towel so you don't get any big drips and just the even mist. If you are doing multiple colors, no need to wait until it is dry, just spray on your next color right on top.
The back of your shirt will pretty much be white, so I just lifted it up and flipped it over and scrunched it up again to spray the back while the front was still wet.
Once it is dry to the touch, you can remove your freezer stencil if you used one. Let them dry completely for 72 hours before washing.
Here it is after washing on hot twice:
As you can see, there is some slight color fading after washing a few times which I expected. However, you can't beat how fast this project is for making tie dye baby clothes! If you want to dye baby clothes the traditional way with no fading, follow these how to dye baby clothes instructions.
