Something Cute!

I have something super fun to show you today. I have been anxiously awaiting the release of this kit because of what I made!!! First here is a preview of this super cute kit called Fairy Garden. It is a collab between Flowerscraps and Scrappin Serenity (Cristie Dawn on my CT). It is so cute and I love the colors! Here is the previews. You can check out this kit HERE
Remember how I said I was into hybrid scrapping lately? Well I saw something cute my friend from GS Julie {aka Hybrid Queen} had done and had to try it out. Baby onesies!!! Look how cute these turned out.
First using Hot Mom's Club - By Me- {I made that binkie clip too, they are a life saver!}
This one is using Best Days of Your Life by Connie Prince
And these last two using fairy Garden by Flowerscraps.
Aren't these fun? And they are soooo easy!!! Here is how I made them~
Design your "logo" in PS or whatever program you use. Make sure you measure the space on your onesie. I used size 3 months, so my logos were 7x3. Then reverse your image horizontally to create a mirror image for printing. You have to print on special iron on transfer paper. I got mine at Walmart. Just make sure you get the right kind. They have a light fabric transfer and a dark fabric transfer. Then print. I could fit 3 designs to one paper. Make sure you let them dry comepletey before transfering or it will smudge. Next follow the instructions on the transfer package to iron them on. When they have cooled, embellish with ribbons, bows, buttons and silk flowers. One thing I will do differently next time is trime the transfer closer to the actual image. I sort of cut them in a big circle and you could see the outline one some of them. Unfortunately these are not for me :(. I know you were all thinking, "Really Steph? More baby clothes?" But they were for a friend at work who is due in April, I SWEAR!! Although, I had a hard time giving them to her because they are sooo cute! I plan on making some for myself and a shirt for my son that says Big Brothers Rock, or something like that. Anyway, hope I have inspired you to try something new. If you are just beginning in the hybrid realm, as I am, these are an easy place to begin! If any one wants a tut on how to make the binkie holders, let me know, I will work one up! Have a great day! XOXOXO

That is SO cool! Thank you SO much for sharing. I make baby things quite often, usually crocheted, but I know these will be a hit! My husband will come home and ask if we have any baby stuff for the guys at work when he hears they are going to be daddy's. Thank you!

I loved the onesies! I've made something similar for my 5-year-old, but the sad thing is that the first machine wash ruined the picture almost completely.
I wonder if your transfer is better than mine, or if it's just the fact that it can't be properly transferred on knitted material?? Any experience anyone?
I'd love to hear...
