And now, on to my project:
I have a dear friend who is pregnant with her first baby right now–a sweet baby girl. And because one of the things that helped me get through my tough pregnancy were thoughtful tokens of love from my friends, I thought I would put together a little surprise gift for my pal. This project is super quick, fun and the possibilities are endless. It would also make a great “station” at a baby shower–for guests to design their own onesies for the new baby.
I didn’t have painters tape, so I used some washi tape I had on hand to tape off my stripes. And then I pulled out some of my favorite Martha Stewart colors. I’m sure fabric paint would be a better option, but the color selections aren’t as good and I figure the new baby will only wear this onesie once before growing out of it anyway.
I used some scrap wood I had to tape down the onesie so it didn’t move around while I painted.
I made a second onesie and decided to add a pink stripe on the sleeve to girl-it-up a bit.
Next, I started on a small muslin gift bag to package the onesie. I followed the same process to create the stripes.
You can find muslin pouches like this here on etsy.
