Star Trek and Power Ranger Onesies

15 Feb

I had the privelage of meeting my nephew Dominic for the first time a couple weeks ago. I’m kind of known in my extended family for personalized onesies and t-shirts. What can I say? I love my silhouette and I know how to use it! 🙂 Don’t be a hater.
Dominic was no exception to my love for personalized onesies. Only, his mother got to help pick what they were 🙂
We started off with a pack of white Gerber onesies- but white is so boring! I have a hard time finding colored onesies. I know JoAnns and Hobby Lobby sell them, but for $4 a pop and only in selected colors! So lame. So with some left over RIT dye we had from dying my husband’s golf discs (see here), we dyed the white onesies Red by following instructions on the RIT box.
My SIL (“sister in law”)is a star trek fan (are they still called “trekky”s?) so we of course did one of those:

This one was SO easy. After the onesie was dyed red, I cut a yellow heat transfer vinyl the same size as the black, and just layered them for ironing. Ironed the yellow first, let it cool, then ironed the black on top.

The next one we made, a Red Power Ranger onesie, was a little more difficult. Creating the image from scratch was harder and there were no images online to really go off of. I’m still pretty proud of it though.
I started with ironing the white vinyl first. After it cooled, I ironed the black, then finally the yellow.


I do wish I had made the belt buckle larger, but I was trying too hard to stay “mini” for a baby size.
Here they are showing off for a photo shoot:

And when my nephew finally wears them, I’ll post an update picture of the cutie in his gear.

Had I known at the time of making this how popular it would be, I would have saved the template! It is growing increasingly popular and my inbox is getting overwhelmed with requests for custom work for your little loved ones. I am so regretful to announce that I can not and will not be making these anytime soon. The template was very time consuming to get right, and because I did not save it I simply do not have the time to create a new one. I am so, so, SO sorry! But I am also very flattered that so many people love it. When my current situation changes and I am able to create a new template, I will remove this message and include a shopping cart on this post for check out through Paypal. Thank you for your understanding! -Mandy

I like calling them "Bath Bombs" better but for some reason repeating that second "b" word on the internet scares...
