Boy & Girl Twin Onesies

I had some leftover fabric paint from the lined notebook paper onesie I did yesterday, and couldn’t let it just sit there! I have a friend who is pregnant with boy-girl twins (yes, everyone in my life is pregnant, wanting to get pregnant, or just had a baby, it seems).

I won’t be able to make it to the shower, but wanted to send along something fun and hand-made. And every momma knows that you can never have enough onesies!

First, I ironed freezer-paper to the inside of the onesies to make them nice and flat, and make sure the paint doesn’t bleed through. Using the Martha Stewart Crafts Decorative Paint Line by Plaid mixed with fabric medium in the paint bottles, I just free-handed the bow-tie and ruffle designs. Using the same colors on both, and keeping the painting on the top half is what makes them matchy-matchy, but the designs make them undeniably boy-girl.

Bow Tie:

 Eyelet Lace Ruffle:

Even making both of these couldn’t have taken me more than 10 minutes, total. Handmade baby gift and time to spare – score!

Until Next Time,

    I received a few plain onesies… I think I should actually draw on them!!

  5. Just too cute, Carolina! Love the tip on freezer paper inside the shirts. I'll have to remember that for adult T's too!

    Now I have to start a whole new Pin board for these, ha!
