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.
