Crafty Baby Monthly Onesies


I adore the monthly baby photography trend that's reached mainstream in the past few years. Not only is it a great way to track your baby's growth and changing looks throughout their first year, it's an especially fun way to get crafty. Some opt for onesie stickers, while others set a full scene full of their baby's favorite things. Both are fun! However, I prefer to get a little crafty. Below are the onesies I've made for a friend's daughter over the past year. Conveniently enough, she was born in December, so Month 1 corresponded with the first month of year. We chose to do icons that represented what made each month special. The outcome was adorable!

Below each picture I've listed the specific materials and techniques used to create each onesie.

I can't believe this year is already over!
