Fancy Frugal Life: Birth Announcement Onesie Tutorial

Saturday, September 10, 2011

Birth Announcement Onesie Tutorial


Oh Pinterest how I love thee....really isn't it the best thing that's ever happened to creative type people? And it's the best thing that's ever happened to my iPhone. My husband might disagree since he always says, "Oh, you pinning, AGAIN?" Yes I am so shhh...







I saw this sweet image here, on Pinterest of course and knew I needed to make one for my little newborn niece! Having new babies in the family is super exciting because you get to make them neat stuff! I wish I could give credit to this photographer but unfortunately the "Pin" doesn't point to a website that works :(












Here is how I made one of these. All you need is a white onesie, sharpie, an iron on quick fuse sheet. (Mine was from Michael's), an iron, and a computer/printer.



Make a calendar on Excel and size it to your onesie. Print it out on the Quick Fuse sheet, and cut it out. Then iron it on and circle the date of birth.






Easy...inexpensive..A-dorable.








Put the onesie on a beautiful baby and take a picture!





This is my gorgeous sweet niece Edyn! Look at those lashes...

We just got back from Indiana visiting my husband's family and I got my baby fix! Fantastic...


Have a great weekend!XOXO
Lina

*******UPDATE: Because I've had so many requests. I am taking orders for this fabulous onesie. You can purchase on the top right of my website...Email questions to fancyfrugallife@gmail.com. Thanks!











Love it?

So cute. My husband does the same thing... every time I'm on my computer he says, "Are you on Pinterest again???" This is adorable. I love it, and who knew how simple it is to make one. I would love it if you would stop by and share this at the crafty link party going on right now at Lines Across My Face.
I hope to see you soon,
Rachel

I love this idea! I have a niece due any day now. I'm going to pass the idea on to my sister in law and see if she would want this for her birth announcements. It's such a clever idea! I made her one month onesies to wear each month for pictures, but I love the fresh take on that idea. I'm your newest follower.

Thanks, Rachel
