One of my good friends just had a baby girl, so I decided to knit a little hat with some of the leftover yarn I used for the Pink Floppy Dog. I made up my own design, and it actually came out alright! But hey, it's a hat. How hard could that be?
I thought I would try to find a cute outfit to go with the hat, but I couldn't find anything anywhere that matched the colors in the hat. Even the lady at Gymboree did a terrible job trying to help me. I think she just wanted me to buy anything.
A few weeks ago I was browsing some crafty blogs, and discovered freezer paper stenciling. You can paint any design you want onto an item of clothing, or anything fabric, using a stencil made with freezer paper. The freezer paper has a plastic coating on one side that you iron on to your shirt (or whatever) which creates a seal so the paint doesn't bleed out of the stencil. What a great idea! I decided to make some onesies to match the hat.
