i know i've promised to post how i make evan's every-month onesies...
so here it is!
and this was SO not my original idea - just to be clear...
i was copying off of a design that Old Navy put out a while back...
and with a little help from blog-reading friends...
somehow just made it my own. :)
WHAT YOU NEED:
(1) a white Onesie (i use Gerber brand onesies that i buy at Target - but warning, i think these run SMALL)
(2) a color inkjet Printer
(3) Photoshop - is use PS7.0
(4) Inkjet Tshirt Transfer Paper (i use Avery Inkjet light colored tshirt transfers)
(5) an Iron
STEP 1: Create your circle with month image in Photoshop. Open new, 5 inch x 5 inch document, white background, 300 DPI. Draw Circle by selecting the elliptical marquee tool, and then click and drag (while holding down shift) to create perfect circle at whatever size you like.
STEP 2: Fill circle - using paint can to fill with whatever color you like.
STEP 3: Add Month #. Select text tool - click and draw text box, then add # to represent months old. Make sure that text color is set to white, and that alignment is on center alignment option. I use ITC American Typewriter as my font (i bought this font from www.myfonts.com), and use a 210 pt size for the #.
STEP 4: Add text for "months". Select text tool - click and draw second text box - under # of months, then type the word 'months'. Again -- Make sure that text color is set to white, and that alignment is on center alignment option. Again -- I use ITC American Typewriter as my font, and use a 50 pt size for the word months.
STEP 5: Now - according to directions on Avery's Inkjet Tshirt Transfer Paper - the image must be flipped - PRIOR TO PRINTING - so that when ironed on, it appears the right-way, and is readable. To do this -- First flatten your image, then go to IMAGE >> ROTATE CANVAS >> FLIP CANVAS HORIZONTAL. Your image should now look like this and is ready for printing:
STEP 6: PRINT image on avery inkjet tshirt transfer paper (accordin to package directions) -- i use the best setting on my printer -- and then IRON onto Onesie according to package directions.
** optional: i like to create a fun back-of-the-onesie slogan... which can be done in a similar way to the directions above, just always remember to flip horizontal before printing!!
** you should know - i've found these inkjet onesies dont wash well. this is pretty much a one-time wear, solely for my photo-op purposes!!!
** Tip: once created - Keep your PS file saved as a PSD file IN LAYERS, and you can easily just open it up, change the fill color (or not) and update the month #!!
I hope this helps! feel free to post Qs in the comments and i will try my best to answer!
