DIY Decorated Baby Onesies

I love this idea!  It is great for a quickie customized baby gift, but turns into a blast if incorporated into a baby shower as an activity.  You cannot get simpler!  With just a few basic supplies, your creativity can play away and the result is too cute for words.  It’s kinda one of those projects that will have you grabbing another and another.  It is just plain old fun dreaming up designs and coloring away.  Some would say, “therapeutic!”onesies_0000

Happy crafting!
