My husband has this Jeep that we go rockcrawling with. He loves this Jeep and it's currently off getting even bigger (ugh!).



This is what it used to look like.



This is the ridiculousness that it is now.



And this is my embroidered version of it.



One a onesie for our future kid, lol.

Ack!  This is so cool!!  My guy is a major car guy....has a 99 jeep that is currently getting larger also (is there a limit here??, haha).  When I showed him this he said, why can't you do something like that??  

This summer will be the first time our little guy goes wheeling...IF the jeep is in one piece that is....you've inspired me (and my hubby to hound me  Tongue) to make him some jeep apparel to commemorate.  

PS--ROCKS!!

ah hahaha! this made me smile, i love it. Smiley i knew a guy who looooved rockcrawling in his jeep, and it seems like their jeeps will never be DONE - something always must be added, fixed, lifted, etc. Smiley

ooh i love it. being a car enthusiast and a firm believer in a truck isnt a truck (or a jeep isnt a jeep) unless its lifted, and i am dying to go rock crawling. you did a great job on the onesie, how were you able to do the crayon tinting on it the onesie? i've been thinking about trying it and wasnt sure how well it would hold up or the best way to go about doing it. thanks!

Some serious trial and error. I've never crayon tinted something intended to be washed before. So I crayon tinted it and ironed it and washed it and it all came out. So I colored it in again, ironed it AGAIN, waited a little bit, ironed it MORE and then washed it. It faded, but stuck alright. I've ironed it again, but haven't washed it since.
