Iron-on Nest Onesie





Here's the springtime onesie I said I would post a picture of.  I just love it! I got the image from The Graphics Fairy.  It's such a wonderful blog. I love vintage things and this blog offers a plethora of lovely, vintage clip art, like this and this and this...


I also made these cute onesies from the font Kalocsai. I just changed the colors and mirrored the images in an American Greetings Card program that my mom gave me.  If you don't have one of those programs you can use Microsoft Word and mirror the images when it's time to print....I think.  But you can (and should) buy a similar program really cheap here. User friendly and fast, it's like using Adobe Page Maker for dummies.
So these are easy, cute and personal...gotta love that right?  I just followed the package directions and BAM! 5 new shirts for Adelade to wear.
Here's also some that I made a few weeks ago, for a couple of friends that just had babies. Do you love them? I sure do. They make the sweetest gifts.  I hope you get some transfers and start ironing away!

So I entered BRAG MONDAY. This is my first time doing anything like this. Head on over there and see all the other cool stuff that's linked up.

What cute little onesies! Where or where was this when my Baby Bee was a wee one? My girl is 9 now and I don't think she'll let me put a onesie with a sweet birds nest on her now. I like what you've got on your blog. Count me in as your newest follower!
