I don’t know if it’s the pregnancy hormones or too much time on Pinterest but I’ve been feeling the crafty vibe lately. Usually that means I think about all the cool things I could make after I put Sippy to bed and then promptly turn on the latest episode of Top Chef while I park my tired booty on the couch.
But a friend’s baby shower this weekend with a fun game to bring a onesie that represented you had me busting out my crafty side for a change. I decided a onesie sporting neighborhood pride would be good since we are both Glen Park-ites these days.
I started with some fabric markers and the magnetic letters from our refrigerator.
Sippy wanted to help so she piled on ALL the letters from the refrigerator.
While I thought she was on to a fun idea I decided to go with the original plan and traced “glen park” with fabric markers instead.
And then filled in all the letters.
That seemed a little light and fuzzy so I outlined everything in black which led to some color bleeding because I didn’t have time to dry it in between applications. (Hello craft project done during nap time right before the shower begins.) I like to call this a “happy accident” and clearly intentional shading.
A little drying in the sun Et Voila – a hispter Glen Park neighborhood onesie is born!
