Stamped onesies for my great-niece

HI All! I'm away for the weekend with no internet access, so I'm scheduling this post.


I glued the buttons on with non-toxic fabric glue and double stitched them too! Those buttons are NOT coming off!





Her daddy (my nephew) is a huge VW fan, and his favorite color is purple, so this one is super appropriate for her! I double stamped the sentiment so the lavender would add a shadow effect. It didn't really work, it just looks blurry! lol!



Here's where the whole thing went wrong. 
Horribly wrong. 
*sigh* I knew the Copics would bleed, so I left a pretty good margin between my coloring and the outline of the duck. Everything was great until I went back over it to darken the color. The second layer started to spread and I freaked! I'm practically screaming at it to "STOP, PLEASE STOP!" As you can see, my "wide margin" was nowhere near wide enough...
Live and learn people. Don't do what I did!


I love the font on the cupcake one and how "sassy" is is! I hope her mom will like this one!

For packaging I just recovered the CS that came in the original plastic.




I'm so excited about meeting my great-niece Evelyn this weekend! I hope her parents like her onesies.

All black ink is Memento Tuxedo black, all colored ink is Palette hybrid (except the duck which was colored with Copic markers). Stamps from PTI and Inkadinkado.

Thanks for stopping by today friends I'll catch-up on your posts when I return!

Those are so cute. I would add a little brown to the overflow on the duck and call it a nest! LOL. I love the cupcake one.

These are so, so adorable, Dana! I would have done the same thing - yelling at the onesie to stop running - even though I knew it was a lost cause. At least now you know what doesn't work. ;)

i just LOVE this project. it's so adoralbe. one question: does the ink stay on even after washing? or do you have to spray something on it for it to stay machine wash friendly?
