My 3 Monsters: New Onesies!!

New Onesies!!

You all (maybe) know how much I love to embellish onesies with freezer paper stencils for my friends who are still having the babies.  Thankfully I am not still having the babies. These were some of my favorites to jog your memories:

Thanks to my sister in law, Daina, for teaching me how to do this!!  I've been addicted to it ever since I started.  Almost anything that stands still enough and can take the heat of an iron gets a stencil around these parts.  Well, I'm trying something new -- fabric embellished onesies.  I found some cute pink onesis the other day that are 3% spandex so they feel a little bit like leotards.  I was instantly taken back to the days of my childhood when all I ever wanted was to be a ballerina.  The black and pink of the leotards and tights and the fluttery little skirt I just had to have.  Except at my dance studio we were required to wear red leotards with pink tights and white ballet shoes.  Dumb.  Even as a young girl I think I knew that they were doing us wrong by making us wear pink and red together.  But that is neither here nor there.  The pink onesies . . . I wanted to do something tutu inspired, but even I know an actual tutu is impractical at best. So I found some sparkly black organza in my fabric stash and an idea was born

Are you ready for this?  Can you handle the cute?

The ruffly bum is to-die-for adorable and every girl deserves a good "corsage".  I made another ruffly bum onesie that has a bunch of pearl and chain necklaces and a fancy pendant a la Coco Chanel painted on the front.  No pictures of that one because the paint is still drying.  First thing tomorrow morning these babies are going to be listed in my Etsy shop

. . . only $5 for this week only . . . yes, I'm turning into a hopelessly cheesy salesperson fit to hock my goods at a used car lot.  I am giving away a free headband and flower pin to try and make up for it, though.  I need some friends to start having the girl babies so I will have some models.

  1. The favorites you listed at the top were some of MY favorites too :D Thanks, friend! I have to say, I'm sorry I missed the boat on the ruffly bum onesies though! Embellished bottoms are a favorite around these parts. That pink onesie is TOO DIE FOR! Maybe I can convince Mike that Audrey needs a sister ;)


Thanks for leaving a comment. I try to respond to every one, even if it takes me a little while!
