My Other Project - Custom Onesies

Ah, the Onesie ... one of the best baby / toddler inventions, ever. Christian had just about outgrown all his Onesies when I found 3T onesies at the store the other day!

In the past few months, I've had three pregnant friends and so when looking for something unique to give them, I decided to make some cute, custom onesies.

My most recent onesie project was for Christian's teacher. She was having a girl, but didn't like "girlie things" and told me she had decorated the baby's room in "baby skulls." So I set out for a way to decorate onesies with baby skulls ... and I succeeded!

I also went to a little craft fair, and found somebody else had my idea and had custom onesies with skull and cross bones. Although, her onesies feature original artwork, whereas mine are purchased iron-on transfers.

She charged $10.00 for one onesie. I paid less than that for four white onesies (plus the cost of all the iron-on transfers, of course). So, if I were ambitous enough, I could make several of them and sell them on Etsy.

Still pondering that opportunity.

And I happened to come across an adorable Hello Kitty iron-on transfer, so I made a shirt for myself, too! :)
