rubber baby buggy bumpers!

I have stumbled upon a new project.  Baby onesies.  Being a former embroidery business owner, I still have a kickin' machine to dust off and get going every once in a while.  So this idea all began when I went to a baby shower for a friend of mine who is refusing to tell anyone the name of her baby.  I usually monogram baby gifts and this just completely threw me off.  I knew it was a girl so I decided to come up with a couple of cute phrases to put on onesies:  "nobody puts baby in the corner" and simply "baby cakes."  They were a hit.  My friend immediately asked me to put more phrases on a few onesies for people that she knew.  Then, my sister in law asked me if I had some baby stuff laying around that she could use for a shower she was going to.  I gave her a couple: "rubber baby buggy bumpers!" and "I'm not pooping, I'm just thinking real hard."  Another slam dunk.  So I decided to make up a few and have my own little etsy store showcasing my new stuff... so anything baby related belongs here.

If you're too lazy to click, here's some of what I've done...

Love it! I think those will be a hit. I know who THAT FRIEND is! :) Darn Emily. Oh well.

I saw the onsies you made for Katie and they are super cute. You've come up with some very creative sayings for the onsies.

One of my very favorite shower gifts were the onsies you made for David. That was almost 5 years ago and I still remember them well and have many pictures of him in those onsies. Loved the long sleeved ones too.

I hope you have mucho success selling these on etsy! Good luck my friend!

Oh snap. I am so jealous! What a great idea....those onsies are AWESOME!! Super-duper clever. I did some onsies in a past life, but my sayings were lame....

Will you still be my friend when you are the owner of a incredibly sucessful Fortune 500 line of baby clothes?
