Custom First Year Babysuits, One for Each Month
I recently made these custom one piece bodysuits for a friend that loves to take photos of her kids each month. I saw the idea on the Martha Stewart Show and loved it! I was so happy when I had the opportunity to try it out myself.
Martha Stewart provides templates for the 12 months, you can get them here. I wanted mine to be more custom so I created my own, you can get my templates here.
This is a relatively easy process although I have to admit, it was quite time consuming to create the templates. I used a free program, Paint.net, to create the templates. It isn't the easiest program to use but it is free. I am sure if I had real design software, or Paint.net skills, I could have done it much faster.
Once the templates were made, the rest of the process was easy. I printed off the templates using iron on transfer paper. Then I cut out each circle. I customized each with the babies name (that is the blurred out part.) The name I cut out separately.
If you make these or some of your own design, let me know, would love to see! Craft on.
