Alright ladies and gents, prepare yourselves, this is my very first post! Don't be surprised if I've messed it up a bit - also be prepared for poor picture quality (I used a handy). Now that that's out of the way, check out the baby clothes! I have several friends/relatives ready to have their first offspring (starting any day now), so I have been preparing myself for the multiple showers I will be forced to attend. Though many have registered (which I find a little tacky) I have decided to make them their pressies instead. So, without further ado....

(for twin girls - front & back images)


so, enough jaw-wagging. Let me know what ya think - I could use some help, like - what is a paint I can use for the lettering that won't dry so stiff? I used the cool freezer paper technique. Thanks for looking!

Very cute! You should also post these in the children's clothing section, too! I love those and I think the recipients, will too! I always prefer handmade gifts!

Yeah! My very first craftster feedback - thank you!
   p.s. I would have posted them in the children's section, but I thought it mentioned something about posts having to have been sewn - I didn't sew the tops or onesies, I just tie-dyed them and stenciled them.

I LOVE the ac/dc ones VERY cute! You can post these in the childrens section, if you wanted too, it would be ok, BUT craftster rules state that you dont post the same thing twice (as in posting it here AND the childrens section). Anyways, I think you did a fantastic job on them! And for the paint .. what kind are you using? Fabric paint usually dries fairly soft (depending on how many coats you use), I usually use acrylic paints mixed with textile medium, its always soft. Hope that helps!
