I am so impressed that you made your own swaddlers! When you gave me these as a gift for Silas, I thought they were soft and cute, but I was not quite sure why you loved them so much. Well, I soon learned that it doesn't matter what I think because Silas LOVES them. He has to have one of his "binkies" to go to sleep or it is a rough night! When he was itty bitty, I especially loved how thin they were so I felt comfortable letting him sleep with one and not worrying about SIDS.
how long would you use the iron over the stamped areas?
Just 3-4 seconds over each painted shape should be fine--unless your fabric paint comes with different instructions!
This idea came to me just yesterday. I'm so glad I found your post. I can't wait to give it a try!
