Thanksgiving Onesie {or gobble gobble}

I try to get a little blog reading in every morning before my little miss wakes up. Its a nice, relaxing way to start the day. Yesterday morning, I started my reading with Tatertots & Jello {as I frequently do} and instantly fell in love with the Typography Pillow Jen made for Thanksgiving. I had already been mulling over Thanksgiving onesies for little miss. Jen's pillow was just the inspiration i needed!

I set out with my newfound love of freezer paper to make a typography onesie. Thankfully, I was able to get my new printer to like the freezer paper this time around.

I waited for my husband to get home to cut out the gobbles. He's much better with an exacto knife than I am! Also, he had a brilliant idea of how to get the little circles inside letters like g, b, and e without having to cut them out. A hole punch! So, I hole punched a bunch of little circles while my husband made quickish work of cutting out the letters.

After adhering the freezer paper stencil to the onesie, I followed the directions on my paint bottles. A little bit of overnight drying and I had myself a cute onesies for my little girl's first Thanksgiving! {and the need for a Silhouette!} It just got cold here, so she'll be breaking it in today!

She's not quite tall enough for the exersaucer but man she loves it! It makes for some very funny poses.

Come party with me!
