DIY Onsies & Chef Apron!

On Easter when I attempted to take pictures my SD card was full! AHHHH! So this past week I cleared off my card a little bit &  was deleting old photos when I came across a bunch of pictures I took BEFORE CHRISTMAS! Yeah they have been on there that long. But It was pictures of some things I made for people for Christmas. I do not have tutorials for these just photos of the before and after of each of them but I figured I would show them to you anyways.

First I made some personalized onsies for a newborn baby that was just recently welcomed to the world in October! There is kind of a inside joke to the onsies so I might have to explain. I bought a plain white 3 pack of onsies & I used the fabric markers I used in my DIY Personalized Shirt for less than $5.
There is an inside joke that we have with the father of the baby, my husband calls him a "bucket baby" because they work together at a tree cutting company and he uses a bucket truck (seen on the white onsie) to cut the trees instead of climbing the trees. So I dyed 2 of the onsies orange to match the orange shirts they were for their company. So I wrote "Bucket Baby" on one, since that's what my husband calls the baby's father, and drew a bucket truck on the other. The third says on the front "I wanted to climb a tree..." and on the back it says "but bucket baby's run in my family." All of these were my husbands idea, he can be clever!

This is a gift I made for my cousin, who at all the family events & cookouts is the head BBQ chef. He is always running the grill and always wearing some kind of funky apron and chef hat!! So I thought since he is always head chef lol I would make him an apron with his name on it. I used Iron on letters from Walmart, I actually had tons of random letters left over from the shirts I made for my wedding which you can find Here: Personalized Bride ShirtBridal Party Shirts.
Got the apron from Walmart as well for less than $5. I just ironed on the letters and bam! A personalized apron!

They all loved them! Hopefully this will give you some inspiration even though these pics are from months ago!
