I have seen shirts like this before with the capital as a heart in the state but Houston isn't the capital of Texas so that wasn't going to work. I also found a picture of Texas in the Silhouette Online Store, but again it had a star over Austin, not what I was looking for. So I had to get clever...
I googled "Texas Outline" under images and when I found one that look clear, I saved it to my computer. Then in the Silhouette Studio, I opened up the Texas picture. I played around and I found this awesome feature; The Tracing Tool. It allows you to trace around a picture that you already have on your computer. So I added the little heart and selected "Trace around Outer Edge".
Then I hit cut! It was so exciting... Now if you don't have a Silhouette, you can just cut this shape out with scissors or an Exacto knife. Next, you need to iron down the shape's outline to the onesie. Don't hold the iron down too long, I have made that mistake and the freezer paper gets rumply. Make sure to iron around all of the detailed edges to form a nice seal. Don't forget to iron down you little heart on the inside of your state.
Now its time for the fabric paint. I meant to buy "matte" red paint but as you can see I must have grabbed the "metallic" so it had kind of a shimmery look to it. Clyde it too little to be mad at me for that :)
I did two coats and waited about 20 mins between. Don't forget to put some newspaper or a paper bag inside the onesie so it wont bleed.
The next step is my favorite part, for some reason there is something SOOO satisfying about pulling the freezer paper off to me! Of course wait until it is completely dry.
Lastly, you have to heat set the fabric paint. There might be some instructions on your fabric paint about how to do this. I looked online and found some. You have to use something between the paint and the iron like a hand towel or something. I ironed mine for about a minute total moving the iron around the whole time. Some people said to do it for 4-5 minutes but that seemed really long to me.
I love my Silhouette! Now on another note, don't try to stage a photo shoot with a hungry baby.... (I promise he likes his Texas Onesie, the boy just loves to eat!)
