I can’t believe my little guy is already 5 weeks old (almost 6)! Each week I’ve been posting Instagram shots of him, but I wanted something a little more permanent and “professional” to keep track of the months. Because of the terrible flu going around, I’ve been trying to keep him inside as much as possible; so for his one month pictures I had to scrounge up whatever I could find around the house. The results made me pretty happy!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
1 Sharpie Pen
Printed Number Design
Piece of Scrap Cardboard
I kept this project really simple, and even opted not to use my Silhouette to cut out the design for me.
The printed number was one I whipped up in Photoshop.

Once you print out your design, place it under the first layer of your onesie fabric making sure to back it with a scrap piece of cardboard to protect the back of the onesie from getting Sharpie on it.
Next, take the Sharpie Pen and outline the design with it. I found that outlining helped keep the lines cleaner and made it easier later on when I filled in the design. When you’re done outlining, fill in the pattern with your Sharpie. I opted to use black on the antlers and gold metallic on the number … and I would not recommend this! The metallic marker bled pretty badly, so I would stick to a standard Sharpie in whatever color you prefer.
And there you have it! A super simple “Month by Month” onesie for your little one using standard items you probably have laying around your house!
