When my friends over at iLoveToCreate asked if I would decorate some baby body suits with their Tulip Fabric Markers, I couldn't resist the challenge! I currently have a whole bunch of expecting mamas in my life and in my opinion, a one of a kind baby body suit or t-shirt makes the best gift.
I thought it would be fun to create mandala body suits as gift for my prego friends so I grabbed my fabric markers and got busy drawing a variety of tiny mandalas.
I like to start drawing a mandala by lightly tracing a circle in pencil- sometimes I use a compass but most of the time I use a bowl!
Next, I added a piece of cardboard to the inside of the bodysuit to make it easier to draw.
Then, using the pencil circle as my template, I began building a simple mandala design.
I wanted to keep my designs looking more like black line drawings but I couldn't resist adding a few pops of neon color!
I also couldn't resist getting messy with the process! I grabbed some Tulip Fabric Spray Paint and added a layer of light color and then added my mandala drawings over the top.
The cool thing about the Tulip Fabric Makers is that you simply let then dry for 24 hours and then they are washable. SO EASY!
This is such a fun way to personalize a baby gift or you could even make it a baby shower activity.
