A Cherry Gift Ensemble


My friend's little girl was turning a year old this past weekend. I always like to give a homemade gift when I can, usually along with something store bought. We bought the one year old a couple of our favorite board books by Sandra Boynton and then I made her this cute little onesie.
Ever since I bought Everyday Button Bits from Papertrey Ink I had thought those cherries would look fabulous as a T-shirt or a onesie. Since this one is for a little girl who is less than three I made doubly sure to sew those buttons on extra tight. We wouldn't want them to end up in someone's mouth. I stamped the leaves on in palette viridian green. I sewed on some scarlett jewel buttons and then I stamped the sentiment (from Studio G) in palette noir. It really didn't take long at all, most time consuming was the securing of the buttons. When I finished I made a matching gift bag an card. The Kraft bag is from Target. They run about 50cents. I stamped it with PTI Polka Dot basics in Scarlet Jewel. I then cut a label from my Label one dies and added on the cherry leaves and scarlet jewel buttons. Same studio G sentiment. I added some scarlet jewel satin ribbon to the bag and then glued on the label. The card was made in the same fashion except the sentiment is from PTI's Everyday Button Bits.

Your onsie is the cutest thing I've ever seen, and I love how it matches the card and bag.
