so i got to work digging through the bin to see what i could come up with. i am in love with other's photos of their babies at their one, two, three etc. month birthdays with the onesies with the iron on transfer numbers to denote which month it is. i often thought when our baby arrived it would be one of the first things i'd add to my etsy shopping cart. then it dawned on me that i could just create something similar, using what we already had.
i pulled out some felt, thread, needles, pins, cardboard letters, granny's measuring tape, granny's scissors and got to work.
i traced the letters out backwards onto a piece of teal felt. then, using granny's scissors i cut out each letter individually.
using pins i secured each letter onto the top layer of the onesie and used the measuring tape to get it lined up in the center.
using the coral, red, and buttercream threads i sewed each letter onto the onesie, removing the pins after each letter was in place.
i hope to continue making more of these once the sweet baby darling deer makes their way to us, and we can photograph them each month to document their growing journey.
