Fabric paints for nappies

Postby Martha24 » Mon Aug 18, 2014 12:01 pm

I have several plain white PUL-backed nappies I would like to paint images on to. Has anyone done this and, if so, what is the best type of fabric paint to use for this?

TIA

No idea, but sounds like a fun idea.

I imagine any fabric paint or marker that is ok in the usual washing cycles you use for nappies would be fine.

I'm concerned about the heat-setting element that a lot of fabric paints need. Can't really iron a PUL nappy!!
