Cute as a button!

Hi guys!!

I told you I had something else up my sleeve to show you :)

As I wrote in my last post, I went to a baby shower for my cousin (Sarah) this past weekend.  This is the gift I made for her little boy and my other cousin's (Michaela) little boy.  So many boys!!

I've been trying to think outside the box and do more things that are illustrations but are also things people can use. Not just a cute painting or a fun card, but something that can be worn, or used, or taken places etc. So here's my little attempt at making some cute shower gifts for my cousinses. :)

Two little onesies!

I made them matching onesies that say "Cute as a Button" along the side! I made them two different sizes as Sarah's peanut, Brody, is still cookin, haha! And Ephraim (I hope I spelled it right) has already been there, done that!  This way they can match :)

These were really easy to make, if any of you wanted to try it.  I bought the onesies at Hobby Lobby but you can get them anywhere.  I washed them first because they were 100% cotton and I didn't want things to be shrinking after I applied the iron on backing.
Next I took an extra blue kids t-shirt we had from a musical last summer, cut out the circle and painted the face on.  Next I cut out some Wonder Under (WU) that is slightly smaller than the blue circle; I want the edges of it to come up and curl to add a bit of texture instead of a flat image.  Last, I followed the directions to apply the WU by ironing it to the blue circle first, peeling off the back, and then ironing it on to the onesie.  That particular backing is supposed to be able to be washed and cleaned without separating.

Here's a close up for you ...

Hope you guys liked these, I sure had fun making them. I can't wait to see both matching babies!

Hope you all have a fantastic rest of the week!
