I'll keep today's post short and sweet! I made these monthly Onesies (R) as a baby shower gift for a friend of mine and then did some more for my own little guy and thought I'd share the printable here with you.
The printables are for months 1-12, and I just used iron-on transfer paper. The printables are facing the normal direction, but remember that they need to be printed in reverse. Look through your printer options to do that. My printer has "iron-on paper" as one of the paper settings, and it automatically flips it. Test it out on a regular sheet of paper to make sure it's printing right, so you don't waste your transfer paper. :)
The hardest part about this project is finding enough Onesies in the right sizes without breaking the bank. They usually come in packs of 4-6, and I had a hard time finding the sizes I needed. Ugh! I think I ended up paying about $22, and I had a couple left over. Different brands have different sizes, too, so I think I had a pack of 3-6 month that I used for months 4-6 and then a 3-9 month that I used for 7-9.
Aren't they cute?!
I like giving practical packaging instead of the standard gift bags. I bought this little bin at Dollar Tree and lined it with tissue paper. Then I folded each of the sides in on each Onesie and rolled them up, so the month was showing. I actually put the bigger months on the bottom and months 1-6 on the top.
Such a fun gift! Now let's just hope the baby isn't a chunker. ;) I have my little guy's all printed out but am waiting to iron them on one month at a time since he's big! That 2 month pic (right on his 2 month bday) he's actually in a 3-6 month size! Ha!!
I'd love to hear or see pics if you decide to make these. Please comment or share a pic on my Facebook page if you do.
