Baby Shower Signed onesie

I am the proud Grandmother of a darling little girl named, Annie Elizabeth.  In January, I hosted a baby shower for my daughter and on one of the tables I had a onesie for everyone to sign.

I purchased a package of onesie’s at Walmart.  The trim was purchased at JoAnne’s.

I first attached the trim around the neck of the onesie, by hand sewing.  Next cut a piece of freezer paper and with the shiny side up, ironed it to the inside of the onesie.  This was to help the fabric stay in place while the guests were signing their names.

I then used a gold fabric pen to write the date of the shower on the front of the onesie.  I placed a permanent black marker on the table at the shower for the signatures. (check out other baby posts on my blog for instructions for the other items)

All of the guests enjoyed leaving a message for our dear Annie!

To display the onesie, we purchased a shadow box.  The lining of the shadow box was black,so to tie the shadow box into the theme of the nursery, we decide to line the back of the box with fabric that we had used in the nursery.

This is the shadow box hanging on the nursery wall.  We also included the wrist bands and hat from the hospital in that shadow box.   I attached all the items to the back of the frame with straight pins.

My great-niece, Cassidy has attended quite a few concerts in the past few months, so shen  I saw a shadow box on Pinterest for ticket stubs and knew I had to make one for her.  I was not quite as handy as the original pin.  They put a slot in the top of the shadow box so that you could drop the tickets in. I did not have the tools to do that and I am not sure if that would have been as good for Cass, because I am sure she wanted to showcase her favorite ticket stubs.  That would be BLAKE SHELTON!

I did not think to take pictures of each step, but this was an easy project.(less than 30 minutes)  I got the shadow box from IKEA. (my favorite place)  The background is shiny grey chevron scrapbook paper that I purchased at JoAnne’s.  I cut the word “Concerts” from black vinyl with my Cricut.  I welded the letters in the “Cricut Craft Room” (the best place ever and it’s FREE).  I then just put the vinyl on the outside of the glass.  I love the way Cass put her tickets in her box.  If you look closely on the right hand side, you will see that she has a PIT Wrist band.  She attended a Maroon Five Concert and was in the pit!  Yes, that is Adam Levine and she was that close…lucky girl!!
