Mom and Kohlman

Last week we headed to the Snake River to have a pic-nic. While we were there we found the PERFECT spot to take our first ever family pictures, so we headed back the other night to snap some! I absolutely love the beautiful Idaho Falls LDS Temple in the background, reminding me how special my family is. I had a blast picking out our outfits for this session! The best part– They were FREE! Garrett is a videographer and along that he has quite a few photo skills (and really nice cameras/lenses)! I tried my hand at a few of him and Kohlman as well! It was such a beautiful night and they turned out too adorable not to share!

Being a new mom I have had to re-adjust my style a little bit. I love dressing up, but right now with all the wiggling in and out of my tops for feedings, getting some spit up and pee on me here and there, and bending up and down so much to pick up Kohlman, I have learned that dressing up just isn’t quite as fun. I have fallen in love with this simple summer style. A T-shirt and Casual jeans can be dressed up or down, is fairly simple to work with a baby in, and comfortable! I styled this look with a little bling, messy hair, and a handy bag to throw my wallet, phone, water bottle and snacks in for running around town.

DIY: Graphic Baby Onsie

DIY Graphic Baby Onsie

If you have a baby, you know how quickly they grow out of their clothes! My first son was born May 1st, and he is already growing out of most of his 0-3 clothes! Luckily I think I have had him in each outfit at least once, but that still makes me sick when you add up how much each outfit costs. I have been LOVING the new trend in baby clothing that is a little “hipster/organic/simple graphic” paired with some cute baby legging and a beanie or chambray button up. I have been searching for good deals online, but I still cant get myself to spend $10-15 a onesie that he may wear for only a couple months. So I decided to get crafty. I ended up making 10 onesies for less than $20! which is a steal when they outgrow them so fast!  I used more of a free hand method that works for me, but if you want to try using freezer paper and ironing on this is a good tutorial.

To make your own Graphic Baby Onesie (Or any type of graphic T) you’ll need:

Plain white onesies – I got two 5 packs at target

Fabric Paint – Joanns is where I picked mine up, I got matte paint in ebony an white

Paper and pencil/pen

Scissors and/or X-acto knife

Paint brushes (that are nice, but you don’t care if they get ruined) in different sizes

I started with laying out my onesies and figuring out how big I wanted to make my graphic.

Then I free handed my graphics. You can also print if you aren’t comfortable free handing it, I dont have a printer but I though drawing it allowed me to get the perfect size to fit the onesie anyway.

Then I cut out the graphic with scissors and I used an X-Acto knife for the eyes (I have also found this to work well for letters if your using words on your graphic). I taped the graphic cut out to the onesie to help keep it in place.

I slid a hard notebook into the onesie to help keep things flat and to prevent the fabric from sticking in case the paint bled through.

Then I used a mixture of ebony an white matte fabric paint to get a dark grey color for my Batman graphic.

Then with the smallest (and i mean SMALLEST) paintbrush I had, I traced around the graphic. I was very careful to keep the line from feathering.

I then grabbed the eye cut outs and traced around them.

Then I grabbed a larger paint brush and started to it in. Don’t be afraid to use a lot, you want it to be saturated for the best pay off. It will dry hard but soften up after you wash it.

I filled mine in and then went back with the smaller paint brush again to make sure that i didn’t get out of line (I accidentally touched outside of the area with wet paint, so I used dawn dish soap and a wet paper towel and scrubbed it IMMEDIATELY, and  it took care of it, but I would suggest NOT doing that 😉 .

This s how it looked when I finished, and I think it turned out pretty cute!

Most of my other graphic onesies I didn’t bother to cut anything out and I just free handed them. I just took my time and was extra careful. Have fun with it and let me know how they turn out! I’m planning on making some cute Father-Son shirts for my hubby and son now that I know how to make them!

Thanks for reading and I hope it helps!
