I’m SO excited for today you guys!! Fourth of July is my favorite holiday and today I’m using a great new product to show you how I made my daughter an adorable Stamped July 4th Baby Girl’s Outfit and then on top of it all, I’m teaming up with 90 other bloggers to share even more Red White and Blue Ideas!! If you remember last year, we celebrated the Ultimate Red White and Blue Roundup of ideas and this year is the second annual hop!! So check out my craft using the new Plaid Fabric Creations™ line of products, then scroll down for tons more patriotic ideas!! Have you seen prices on July 4th outfits for kids? They’re adorable, but they are pricey! Today I thought I’d play around with Plaid’s new collection and stamp my daughter a little t-shirt for the fourth. Check out how simple it was to make….

For my shirt, I used two simple stamps, along with red and navy blue soft fabric paint. I also used their stamping mats, along with the sponges. I picked up a t-shirt from Target for under $5 and washed it and prepared it for stamping. Slide the stamping pad between the layers of your fabric and keep it smooth. Grab a paper plate and squirt a little soft fabric paint on there. Using the sponge that can be purchased with the stamps, you’ll want to dab paint gently onto the stamps so it’s coated, but not so saturated that the stamp loses it’s design. From there, you gently press the design down onto the shirt and pull up lightly to be sure that it doesn’t bleed. After that I did the same with the arrow stamp I had on hand… Towards the end I had to wash the arrows off and just do one or two of them so that everything came out evenly on the ends. It didn’t come out perfect, but I kind of love it for that very reason!! Here’s the end result…
