More baby stuff

Just a few onesies, burpcloths, a bib, and a headband that I made for baby shower decorations, they were also my gift to the mom to be.

Baby Boom

My friends have been busy making babies lately and I been busy trying to keep up on making their baby gifts. I also had a good friend who hired me to make her husband’s client’s wife some onesies for a baby gift. What a huge compliment! When it comes to crafting, baby gifts are my absolute favorite thing to do so I have had a lot of fun coming up with all of the following baby gifts:


For the following onesie, I dyed it using black tea. I just soaked it in the hot tea until it was the shade I wanted it. I don’t drink tea, but I had seen on Pinterest that it helps immediately sooth sunburn so I bought some to treat the sunburn I acquired over Spring Break. In case you were wondering, it didn’t do a thing for my sunburn, but it works great for antiquing onesies. 073

For this onesie, I decided to try embroidery again. It turned out better than the first time I tried it a few months ago. I think the embroidered owl is sweet.085


Here’s the back of the onesie.106

And although it’s not baby related, I’m throwing in a picture of the newest sling I made for my broken armed monkey. She loves Dr. Seuss and I have some scraps left over from the Dr. Seuss quilt I am making the twins’ kindergarten teacher so I made her day when she came home to this:

What’s a mom to do

when she gets a message from the school on Wednesday night that Friday is wear your favorite college shirt to school day and her kids have long outgrown their favorite college shirts? I refuse to pay for overnight shipping for anything, so ordering them online was NOT a possibility either.

Luckily, I still had some Hanes T-shirts in their size from a pack I had bought a while back, some blue acrylic paint, and freezer paper all on hand. I found a picture online of the logo I wanted to use and printed it out, made a couple of freezer paper stencils from it, watered down the acrylic paint just a little bit, and went to work.

Here’s a link that tells how to do freezer paper stenciling if you are interested. It’s really easy.

The girls are were excited to show off their cougar pride at school today. They will most likely be the only BYU fans in a sea full of Florida school t-shirts.
