This post is a part of a #myfavoritebloggers hop, featuring all-things-baby!
At the bottom of this post are some wonderful ideas for the wee babe in your life – check them out and get creating!
This year has been a year of babies. Not my own, of course, but ones belonging to my dear friends. And this is lovely for me, as I’m a bit of a baby junkie. I get my fix through the snuggles and bopping and swaying of other peoples’ sweet little babes. Then I hand them off and grab the sticky hands of my preschoolers. It’s a great way to keep “the fever” at bay.
Babies are also a great excuse to make things. A recent love of mine is putting witty little sayings on onesies.
This was my latest creation. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out hot pink heat transfer vinyl. The crown is from the Silhouette Gallery and the text is in the free Keep Calm font. I’ve also created a free cut file for those who want to have the text ready to cut. You can download it here.
The “Keep Calm” trend is one of my favourites for gifts. And “Keep Calm and Carry Me” (a take on the WWII poster, Keep Calm and Carry On), reminds me of my own babes.
Who wanted to be carried all of the time. All. Of. The. Time.
Thank you, Mr. Baby Carrier. You gave me freedom.
I can hardly wait to see this modelled by the newest arrival in our circle. And it also reminds me that I have a few more onesies that are still waiting to be jazzed up. I’m going to have to come up with a few more witticisms (as I’ve broadcasted this one all over the Internet – Ruins the surprise, no?).
If you’ve got a witty line that would make a new mama giggle, feel free to leave it in the comments! (I’ll properly give you credit in the blog post where I shamelessly steal your idea and take a picture of it.)

This is simply lovely! One of my favorite “KEEP CALM” renditions that I’ve ever seen. Pinning and sharing this on my FB page!
Thank you so much for the share, Lauren! I appreciate it!
So great Tara! Leave it to you to come up with the cutest onesie!
Oh, thank you, Danni! I was really happy with how it turned out!
So cute!! I am plotting my silhouette purchase….
You won’t regret it, Krista! I use mine all. of. the. time.
And we thank you SO much. This is so adorable and Miss A sported it out and about town the other day. Love love it. You are one clever lady.
I’m so glad that you guys like it! And of course, Miss A probably looked adorable in it! 🙂
Tara, every time I see this project I smile..I absolutely think it’s awesome!
Thank you so much, Marilyn. I love making onesies! 🙂
So cute Tara! My sister-in-law is about to have her first baby. I will have to make her one! Pinned it!
Oh Shanna, let me know if you do! 🙂
This is soooo cute!
Thank you so much, Bethany! 🙂
Thank you so much for the cut file! This will be perfect for a shower I am going to next weekend.
I’m sure that the mama-to-be (or already is?) will love it! I’ve gotten a great response from this onesie when gifting it. The crown is easily found in the Silhouette gallery – let me know if you have trouble finding it!
I don’t have a Silhouette, I am wondering if you know of a way to make this as a pdf and print it onto iron-on transfer paper?
Hi Sheri – If you download the Keep Calm font and a crown image (as the one I used above is a Silhouette America file), you could definitely create a PDF.
Let me know if you have any trouble with that, and I’ll see if I can help!
Tara, I’ve LOVED this project ever since I first saw it! It was one of the projects that had me coveting Silhouette machines!
Thank you, Marilyn! I’ve always loved this project, too!
This proves that management is using micro electronic atomizer for v2

THis design is awesome! Can this file be used on a cricut air? i would love to use it but it tells me it is not the correct file type. Working on designs for a onesie party!
