Giving thanks for family … and Onesies.
Last weekend we had a good time hosting a Baby Shower Tailgater Potluck on behalf of my Denver Bronco Fan-ATIC niece MacKenzie. Her new little fan is due in January and we wanted to create something special to commemorate the celebration.
Years ago my dear friend, Laura Fielding Aspegren, fashioned the most adorable children’s “line” to sell at our church craft fare. Laura affixed cute fabrics to ready-made cotton-knit dresses, tops and jeans and if memory serves, had a hard time keeping up with demand.
Using Laura’s concept, various sized Onesies, Wonder-Under, some scraps from my growing stash, fabric paints and markers we created a fun and custom “Onesies Guest Book” that will hopefully bring Kenzie fond memories when diapering young Tucker.
As guests arrived, each selected a customized Onesie from those adorned with Bandanas, footballs, Bronco logos, ducks, a dog and a cute little monster. Guests were encouraged to sign and/or put a personal personal message on the tush region using fabric paints and markers. (Hint: Fabric paints work best).
Messages were amusing and will undoubtedly be great reminders of a fun celebration to welcome our newest family member.
God created, sew should we. [Creative Joy = Therapy = Undeniable Rippling Effects.] Our stories as makers are valuable. [Life is humbling. Sharing our journeys is uplifting and productive.]
My sister did a variation of this for my baby shower for Lucas. Great idea! Love your photos

Thanks for visiting and sharing Deb (Lucas …. TIME FLIES!)! Cool thing about this technique of putting cute fabrics on a ready-made item is that it can be used so many places. Laura did it on little kid clothing … Christopher Robin and Pooh patches.
