Elephant Onesie

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.

He Wears His Sunglasses At Night– Dino Shirt

I’m finally getting around to posting this hip dinosaur shirt that I made along with the Shark Shirt for a sweet little 3-year old boy.

I wanted to make him 2 shirts, but wanted each to be a different color. I couldn’t find plain t-shirts at my local Target, so I found some at the craft store. However, my only choices were white and black.

White is easy to work with, because most colors & patterns work well on a white background. However, as a parent, I know white is not always ideal when you’re dealing with young kids.

This was the first time I’d made one of my designs on black, and I wanted to make sure it popped. I picked this lime green pattern because I thought it would make a good dinosaur pattern and would be nicely offset by the black.
