Solstice Greetings! Cricut Iron-on Vinyl: Marshall's bibs and onesies

Hello and Solstice Greetings!  I would just like to put it out there, this baby boy should be born today!  Mom is a few centimeters dilated right now, so this could happen.  What a wonderful day to be born!  Unfortunately, I had a friend's father pass today and wouldn't that be perfect to have a birth to balance the day...and don't you know I have some friends who are marrying today.  What a great day even though it is raining buckets on this first day of summer in Cincinnati.  So here is what I made for the impending bundle of joy.

I finally tried my hand at using iron on vinyl.  I was looking on Amazon and Target at some adorable onesies but they were not going to arrive in time for the shower and so expensive.  I said to my self...I can do that!  Plus shopping for a project is fun!  I grabbed the Marshall Amplifier logo off the www, since that is his namesake.  I spent over an hour cleaning up the image and it is not perfect but very good.  The first item I tried were these non printed bibs that were part of the pack.


Then I progressed to onesies.  I wanted black since the Marshall logo is traditionally white but none of the places I went had them.  I have heard since Hobby Lobby sells black.  


Next I had this great idea to make mom and dad a shirt!  I added the 's in as similar a font I could find.  I used the Rock Princess font for mom and dad.


Here's the set.  The happy couple plan on taking their first family photo in these.


Here's a round up of everything that I made.  I only wasted a few inches of vinyl with mistakes.  Not too bad for my first time.  I forgot to use mirror image on a couple of cuts.


 Finally, after the shower I came home with one of their diaper bags, which I promptly personalized.  (The skull was already on the bag).


I am so happy for the couple but I really did not intend to make them cry.  I was telling someone the story and they said that just means it was a heartfelt gift.  I like giving those.  These are a couple of special young people.

Ingredients:
Mark Richards Iron On Vinyl
Cricut Rock Princess Boy Skull font
Cricut Quarter Note font
T shirts from Joann's
Gerber onesies
Chick pea bib set

  1. What a wonderful gift! Very creative. I'm sure all those items will be appreciated and get a lot of use.

    I've still never worked with vinyl; I guess I have enough to do with paper!!
