New Shirt Design!

I'm so happy with the way this design turned out, I just had to make a post about it! This design was inspired by some photos I took of Jackson with balloons this past fall. Here are a few process photos:

stencil has been cut and ironed on the shirt
paint inside the stencil
outer stencil has been removed
little pieces have been removed

and for the final touch I sewed on the balloon strings with orange thread. Even an ugly baby would look cute in this onesie!


  1. I LOVE it! Now do a little girl in pink and I want one!! You should sell these Marg. How much!?

  2. yeah a little girl with pigtails and a skirt would be so cute! the problem is this shirt took me 4 hours from start to finish!! so selling them would hardly be worth my time! but i'll try to get working on a girl version...

  3. precious. i love it. and love the orange. AND ... your baby will not be ugly, so the edition of this little onsie will make him perfectly edible. i might possibly steal him.

  4. duh, i meant the 'addition' ... but was thinking this 'edition'. maybe i should get back to work. xox

  5. It is darling....you are so talented... i have a shirt...can i send it to you to do?? Please???

    Do these type of stencils hold up well under multiple washings??

  6. So very cute!! Margaret, your creativity is over the top!!!! I bet you'd be able to get the length of time to complete a shirt down very quickly, doing them assembly line style. I'm sure any mom would be quite pleased to receive such a specialized hand-crafted gift!!! Keep up the great work!
