What you need

  • Flock film in any colour you like
  • A cutting board
  • An art knife
  • A printed-out graphic
  • Scotch tape
  • A pen, preferably one that writes on smooth surfaces
  • A hot iron and an iron board
  • A (clean) hanky

How to pimp your onesie

  1. Using the cutting board and art knife, cut out the graphic.
    Note: You can also do this using a pair of scissors.

  1. Place your graphic on the shiny side of your flock film.
    Note: Put it on there in the same way as you want to see it on the onesie, no mirror image needed.
  2. Use Scotch tape to attach your graphic to the flock film, so it won’t move.

Extra tip

Always double-check that the shiny side is up before you iron the flock film on. If not, you might end up with a very fancy hanky, as I did.
