Geek alert!

As a child, I was ever so slightly (hahaha, ever so slightly, she says!) addicted to my Gameboy. I told you about that before. What I didn’t say back then, is that my addiction wasn’t limited to that Gameboy. Hypothetically, for instance, it might just have happened that I told my friends while out and about that I really had to go home and get some sleep. While in fact, and this is still very hypothetical, I went home to play Sonic Heroes on my PS2 until the early morning hours.

So when I was about to tackle some more onesies, I thought, let’s get those old heroes involved.

So Sonic is there.

And Spyro.

And Mario and Luigi, of course.

And to limit the geekiness a tiny bit, I also made another Lada lover, so my little boy can go hit the town with his uncle.

And what have we learned?

  • Transfer paper isn’t that ideal for onesies, the drawings do crack pretty easily. But of course you can also call that a vintage look.
  • If you  don’t have any baking paper lying around(and you are lazy as me), don’t just use the paper wrapping around the chocolate to iron your drawing on. You may just transfer the glue as well and make spots that can’t be removed anymore. And then you have to hide that fact by placing another onesie over it.

So. Anyone else suffering from hypothetical addictions?

Get flocking

Babies grow. Fast. And all of a sudden, one day to the next, you may find yourself onesieless.

Luckily for me, Hema was offering a buy-3-get-1-free deal. And they deliver at home (or the office). So I started flocking.

Of course I bought more than just these 4 onesies. But I still need to pimp the other ones. As mina dotter explained, time is scarce, so everything is divided into subtasks. Of course, I shouldn’t wait too long. They should be finished before he grows out of them.

Pimp your onesie

Onesies. Something you can never have enough of. Something to buy in bulk. Something that you can best buy with a front wrap, since pulling a onesie over a baby’s head is hard enough as it is, let alone if there are “nappy accidents” involved.
So I went to Hema, and bought as many as I could carry. All in white, since that makes it easier to wash them in bulk as well. But all white makes it look pretty boring as well, doesn’t it? So I pimped them. With flock film.
Which one is your favourite?

(By the way, I know the RSS feed logo should face the other way round. I blame the lack of sleep that all new moms get to deal with 😉 )
Using flock film is really easy. I’ll try to write a tutorial about it soon enough, but I forgot to take pictures while I made the above. But for now, I’ve run out of onesies. Better get to Hema soon!
