spiffed up onesies

Andy and I both hold an aversion to baby clothes that say things like thank heaven for little girls and cute as cute can be and quack quack goes the duck. I mean, seriously.

So, in the spirit of not buying new stuff, I have been collecting onesies and such from friends and garage sales. The good news is, the patches with the silly slogans are easily removed or covered up.

I have a ton of fabulous fabric and had fun customizing my bug’s attire. I did make one tiny boo boo in my spirited sewing spree…I altered a sleeper and as I was finishing up the underbelly of the tag revealed some initials: CL. I confessed to Caroline last night and, thankfully, she laughed.

  1. Nici – these are great!! It’s wonderful how creative you are. She’s going to be one stylish and very original little girl. We’ll have to hire you if we ever have a little girl :)

    The onesies are very cute. Aren’t they fun? And addictive?

    We will have to start calling her a “Fashion Bug”! Just like her Momma.

    Those are so cute!

    When my cousin was pregnant with twins we made a bunch of onesies by printing up the iron-on paper on the printer. My favorites said, “I only cry when ugly people hold me,” and “I might barf.” Apparently, I’m not nearly as classy as you are!

    That’s a really great solution for reusing baby clothes that you don’t really like!

    I really need to learn how to sew.

    A really really beautiful nursery. You and I have the same taste. Our son’s nursery followed the theme of denim, tyedye and oragami. (I don’t think the gramma’s got it) but we had a blast doing it and I can tell that you have been having a great time.

    Enjoy this quiet planning time it’s a peaceful prelude to a great adventure.

  7. is there anything you can’t do? geez. and when do you sleep?

    the onesies are awesome. i’ve recently been grossed out by the princess-themed onesies that seem to be the only freaking option for my little niece. and, like others have said, i need to learn to sew too.
