DIY Zelda and Pug Onesies

Two of my most-precious-friend-bee-ladies, Pug and Pretzel, are expecting, and I am super excited for both of them! So excited in fact, that I just had to get a bunch of baby clothes to customize. Which may or may not have freaked Sak out to one day come home to see a bunch of onesies around the house.

Although I have a yudu that screenprints excellently, I wanted to try the freezer paper method with the silhouette cameo.  The yudu is best for making large quantities of the same print, while freezer paper is a much quicker way of doing a single print at a time.

Scan in a pug drawing, adjust cut lines in the silhouette program, and cut out freezer paper!
Iron freezer paper to onesie, and screenprint. You could just dab paint on, but I used my yudu screen and applied the ink through the mesh for -sorta- more even application. It's not quite perfect because onesies are kinda made with stretchy ribbed fabric.
I used speedball fabric ink, which according to the webby is non-toxic and non-flammable. That's good.

Tear the paper off carefully, and all done!
Pugs are very hard to draw. Hopefully this looks sorta like one.
And the Zelda onesies:
I'm so pleased with how the opaque yellow came out, it almost looks gold!

Now I shall commence more squealing at the thought of cute babies filling little baby clothes. *squeeee*
