My sister loves to blog. She actually got me into blogging. Since she is pretty much about to pop with her first child, I wanted to make something really special for her.
Her blog always has cute things. I thought it would be cool to make Baby Ave Maria Sosa onesies for each month of her first year! That way, Melinda can document her growing and share it with all of her viewers!
Here is what I did:
Step 1: Buy onesies. I bought mine from Target and TJ Maxx. They were about a dollar each. I made sure to buy sizes that would fit as she grew. (newborn, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, and 9-12 months) They only come in packets of 4, so I used the extra for the Baby shower. :]
Step 2: I made the prints and printed them on iron sheets. Make sure to make them backwards so that it will be right-side-up when you put them on! I made twelve of these. the last for Ave’s 1st birthday!
Step 3: Iron them on:
Step 4, continue with months 2-12
Step 5: Organize and wrap!
When she opened it, she was so excited! I’m looking to find a cute chair that Ave can take her monthly pictures on. I think that would be so fun.
I got a little inspired yesterday. I was looking on instagram, and while looking at all of the amazing pictures my friends have, and the cool lives they all lead, I wanted to make something using pictures and crafts. Two of my favorite things. Besides, I love stalking people to see what awesome things they do. ;)
I recently bought these muslin bags and have been dying to do something with them.
I went on my friend’s instagrams…. (Melinda, Katrina, Angelica… I’m looking at you!) and used their pictures for backdrop for the bags. I also found some on Pinterest and etsy. I printed them on t-shirt Iron-on paper and cut them out.
Make sure you check the box for Transfers before you print or else it will be backwards when you put them on!
Iron them on…
….and viola! ready for anything your pretty little heart desires. Secrets, treasures, small keepsakes, and whatever else you can think of! I really want to use these for a giveaway for my wedding. :]
As you can see, I went a little crazy making them.
I used it as the finishing touch for Melinda and Eddies’ Baby Shower gift. I used a picture that they took together.
