Onesie Project completed and Happy President’s Day

This weekend, I was able to craft a bit for Brady Gaga – and finally got his / her monthly photo onesies finished!  It wasn’t a hard project, per se, but it just had a lot of steps and took some time.

First, I designed what I wanted to numbers to look like – nothing too elaborate, but I wanted something more than just a painted number.  So I came up with dotes around the number in a circle, but that ended up not working, so I did just a circle with the number inside.  Then I had to print out all the numbers and circles onto freezer paper – then cut out – for my freezer paper stencil.

Here’s everything ready to be assembled:

This is when I realized I should have asked my sister if I could have custody of the Slice when she was in India.  That would have been helpful – then I would not have had to cut everything out by hand.  And I also have decided I could truly benefit from a Silhouette cutting machine – it is pretty high on my wish list 🙂 as it can cut paper and fabric!  Anyway…

Then I ironed on all the numbers and circles onto the onesies.  Here are all the prepped onesies – I just had to put a little piece of parchment paper inside the onesie before I started painting.

Here is a onesie in the middle of the painting process:

And here is all of the onesies after being painted, drying.

And here they are in all their glory, after I peeled off the freezer paper and heat set them all:

I really love how they turned out! And they are all organic cotton onesies, which is great.  I would like to figure out how to do this concept a little quicker, so that I can make it as gifts for friends.  I am thinking that maybe the Silhouette could really help me out in that respect.  Maybe a fabric number applique instead of the paint?

I know I only have 0-11, for month 12, Brady Gaga will wear a normal outfit, like JJ did in his monthly photos.

And here is the little man himself, wishing everyone a happy President’s Day!

(I love his outfit, I think it makes him look like he went to the U!)

  1. Brady Gaga is going to be one lucky baby having Tingaling as his/her mumsie.

    I should warn you though that JJ has been eyeing those onesies. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if he, elephant, donkey and tri-pod puppy weren’t already hatching an Ocean 11 type heist for them. I saw them all huddled up the other day around JJ and he was using his wooden spoon to point out different points on a map. When I got close though they all went quiet and JJ just smiled and made the sign for book, then diaper, then milk. He repeated all three slowly a second time and then the others just slowly turned and walked away whistling.

  2. all the onesies are beautiful, I love the colors…JJ looks like a big brother…

  3. Those are adorable – love them! You can certainly ask joe to bring the slice by if you want…it’s all in the Lulu bag still.
    JJ is getting so big!!!!
