Like I mentioned yesterday, I made some baby hats for a friend's shower and wanted to add some personalized onesies to the gift. Wal-Mart sells these onesies for $2.00 each, and they were just perfect for this project.
I used Microsoft Word to print the name and used the outline option to save ink and make it easier to cut out.
This is printed in the Script MT Bold font. I then put freezer paper on top of my print out, and cut along the lines with my Exacto Knife. Be careful to keep this as one stencil and not to cut each letter separately. I really liked how this font connected all the letters and made it easy to form one stencil. Be sure to save the inside of the L and E!
Updated to add: Many of you have asked where to buy freezer paper. I was only able to find it at WalMart locally. However, I did find it on Amazon if your WalMart does not have it in stock.
Cutting out the stencil was the most time consuming part of the entire project. I can't say how long it took because I did a little, then loaded the dishwasher, did a little more, got the kids some juice, did a little more.... you get the idea. :)
Iron the stencil on the onesie as directed in the other tutorial (shiny side against the fabric). I particularly liked the onesies with stripes as they served as a guide to keep my letters straight!
I used Apple Barrel acrylic paint that I also found at WalMart. Most craft stores also have this, or you can purchase it here on Amazon.
This is the baby girl's monogram, in Copperplate Gothic Bold font.
I paired these onesies with the knit flower hats, a nursing cover, and a car seat canopy. It was a fun baby gift to make and I hope my friend loves it!
