Recently, a wee girl has joined the family of a dear dear friend of mine. Of course, I was chomping at the bit to hear of this babe’s arrival – I was itching to create some onesies to send her way.
I used my Cameo to cut out the phrases. The “Princess” is an image from the Silhouette Gallery, and I used the Rockwell Extra Bold font for Hayden’s name.
I was happiest with the big and little sister shirts! Aren’t they so sweet?
The “love” image is from the Silhouette Gallery. I thought it was perfect because of the little and big bird – little and big sisters!
This was the first time I’ve done two colours of iron-on vinyl. I need some time to perfect it, but I feel like I’m entering new territory!
I can’t wait to hear what the new (again!) mama thinks when she gets these shirts in the mail!
These are adorable.
I should probably make some for my own girls. Shoemakers’ wives go barefoot, and all that jazz….
love them T!!!
We love them too, can’t wait for Hayden to be a bit bigger… gonna make for some cute pictures!

Shari – I’m so glad that you liked them! You must send photos as soon as she gets a bit more roly-poly! Can’t wait!

I clicked over to your blog after you commented on mine. These are ADORABLE! We’re due for a baby girl in May and I hadn’t even thought of the possibilities of iron on vinyl before. I’ve never used it before – where do you get it? How well does it hold up?

I LOVE using iron-on vinyl. I’d say at least half of my projects (if not more) are using the iron-on stuff. I started off using the Silhouette brand of iron-on, but then I was tipped off to a company called Expressions Vinyl. They sell vinyl (both traditional and iron-on, which they call t-shirt vinyl) in smaller measurements and cut to work with a variety of machines, so it’s not only less costly, but you can try many different colors or smooth and flocked textures.
I’m pretty sure that your Cricut would cut it out fairly well. The thing is, you have to be able to mirror the image on your software because of the way you iron on the material.
I’m rambling a bit and as I don’t know much about the Cricut, I probably shouldn’t offer any more advice. Google would help out a lot more, I’m sure. v
Thanks for checking out my humble little blog! I’ll be sure to follow yours as well!
