The other day I attended an open house for a friend of mine who will soon be welcoming her fifth child into the world. I love trying to make something by hand for my expectant friends, and this time I really had fun with it.
I purchased a package of white Onesies then went to town decorating each one.
This stork silhouette was found online then printed onto inkjet transfer paper and ironed on.
The kids and I were watching "James and the Giant Peach" while I was making these, and Mr. Earthworm became the inspiration for this one. :)
Does he look familiar? That's one of my trusty ol' birdy designs from my shoe making days.
And of course, this will be a proud reminder of her baby boy's lucky number.
This one was my favorite, but I was so excited about it that I muffed the first try by ironing it on upside down! First I found the image of the ticket online, then used Photoshop to add the text and printed it onto transfer paper. The fix came by printing another image, ironing it onto a small bit of white fabric then stitching it over the upside down image on the Onesie.
I tucked a flannel receiving blanket down into a thrifted basket then added a pair of Diddle Dumpling baby shoes and surrounded them with the Onesies.
A little ric-rac tied around the basket for some color, and I think overall the effect is charming!
