Continuing with yesterday’s theme, I wanted to take a minute to show off the gift I made for the baby shower we had at church on Sunday.
Once you’ve finished ironing, your iron on transfer should look something like this. If you want the finish to be matte, allow the transfer to cool down for about 10 minutes then pull off the paper backing. Do not however allow the transfer to completely cool. I made this mistake and it was nearly impossible to pull off the paper backing.
With the paper backing pulled off, my onesies were complete.
I folded the onesies in thirds and stacked them numerically inside a memory box from Michael’s (yay for another 40% off coupon and a husband that will go to Michael’s with me just so I can use 2 coupons).
Then I wrapped up our memory box and it was ready for gifting. The gift went over really well (if I do say so myself) and the Mom really appreciated the fact that it was homemade, although she did ask me where I bought them from at first
I’ve always loved crafting so I was super happy that I found a way to use my crafting abilities to make a meaningful gift for a friend. There’s nothing better than giving a gift that you’ve made from our own two hands.
