Cover your work area with paper or rags and make sure all your supplies are within your easy reach.
Get your baby in place. Squirt fabric paint about the size of a walnut on a paper plate and smear his foot in the paint. Make sure to get paint on each toe, especially at the part of the foot where the toe and foot meet. Try to not overload his foot or else the print will look more like a smudged blob instead of a foot print.
Don't worry if the paint gets under his nails. It's non-toxic and will wash off. Before pressing his foot onto the item you're about to embellish, try a test print on a piece of paper or another paper plate to make sure you've got the right amount of paint to achieve your desired effect. And, don't use a paint brush since kid's feet are extremely ticklish and the soft bristles will cause him to pull away.
Bring the item to him, not him to the item, and press the item flat onto his foot, holding his ankle and foot still with one hand, and the item with the other. Hold his foot in place for just a few seconds as it doesn't take long for the paint to transfer to the fabric.
If you're making more than one print, you may need to reapply the paint, and make sure to wipe his foot and toes clean before switching to a new color. And, if you're transferring his print onto fabric, stretch it over the cardboard to prevent the paint from bleeding through.
