And now, on to my project:

DIYstripedbabyonesie

 

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.

Make sure to place a piece of cardboard in between the fabric pieces so that the paint doesn’t bleed through.

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.

    Hello smartest girl ever to use washi tape to paint this cute gift. LOVE it! The stripes, the colors, the whole shebang (yes, I just wrote shebang). So fun! Can’t wait to make a set for a baby gift- we’ve had 7 babies born in our ward so far this year. 😉 xoxo

    Such a cute idea! I have a stack of plain white onesies that CJ never wears, I think I need to cute them up a bit.

    Super cute! If you want the paint to be more flexible, try adding textile medium to it (also sold at Michael’s or whatever craft store). Turns any paint into at least a quasi fabric paint.

    It is a well-worn idea which gave rise to a lot of beautiful and inspiring stories of communication more than a distance.
    According to Chrissie Wildwood’s The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia
    of Aromatherapy, soap disturbs the effectiveness in the Epsom salt and will block the elimination of toxins from the body.

    Give it for your sweetie while together in a very romantic setting, or
    leave it hidden as a surprise.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she retains the image of a user in his/her mind that how a
    user can be aware off it. Therefore that’s why this post is great.
    Thanks!
