If you know me in real life– or, frankly, if you’ve read a lot of this blog– you probably know that I can be a little tiny bit of a perfectionist sometimes. Or a lot of a perfectionist most of the time.
I realize that last sentence doesn’t really work grammatically.
Anyway. I made these a long time ago, now. Like 2 months ago, almost. It was during a really super crazy week when I had a baby shower and a birthday party and any number of other things happening all at once. I hadn’t even decided for sure that I was going to make sugar cookies for this baby shower (the one for which I made this Elephant Onesie) but then I decided to be my overachieving self and just do it.
Well, it wasn’t really a great choice as these cookies were a huge pain in the neck. Ha ha. I made sure to do a really simple design, and chose to do it all with one consistency of icing so that they’d go really fast. Except it didn’t go like that.
Last week was a really busy week. Good, but busy. One of the things that went on last week was a baby shower. Yay, babies!
So, of course, I had to make something. The parents have decided to wait until the baby is born to find out its gender, so I had to keep the onesie neutral.
Their registry looked like they were going for a jungle theme for the nursery, so we put a gift together to match. One thing we got for them was a crib sheet that had a green elephant with a blue ear, and it was the perfect addition to the otherwise lion & giraffe-heavy gift.
It’s funny, because I was already planning to make an elephant shirt for the other big event last week, so I ended up making 2 elephants, but they’re very different. More on that one later.
