D.I.Y. Arrow Onesie


Arrow prints have been all the rage lately and I just love it!

I especially love the print on onesies and t-shirts sold at Etsy stores like this one, or this one, or this one.

But with all the expensive shipping fees attached to overseas orders I thought I'd try my hand at D.I.Y.-ing an arrow onesie. 


Note: I bet for you folks in the US it might be cheaper to go the Etsy route. 
And you'd be supporting a small business too!



^ ^ ^ ^


To make your own, all you need is:

- a white onesie (or any other light color, ooh, mint!)
- a fabric marker(I used black, but you can use any color you want, or a mix, fun!)
- a large book to stretch the fabric tight enough to draw on 
and to avoid the marker seeping through to the back
- a cute baby to model your D.I.Y onesie (optional)




I think the model approves!





I must say, I like the result. 
I think I might need to make some more. :)




Hope you enjoyed it, let me know if you give it a try, I'd love to see it!



Love, Maria
