Then I designed a template on my computer, FLIPPED the image so it was backwards and printed it out onto iron-on transfer paper. (just follow the instructions on the papers package)
I originally made my template like the one on the right side with the extra white circle inside the colored circle, but it made my design too big and cut off the top of the circle and the bottom of the font. So make sure you measure your design. I changed it and was able to fit all 12 of my designs onto 2 sheets of the transfer paper.
So once you have them printed, cut out each one, being careful to cut around your image. I left the word month/months as one with the circle so the spacing was the same on each.
Figure out the correct size shirt for each month template and put them together so you have them ready to go.
Iron each of your shirts first, and then lay your design face down onto the shirt exactly where you want it. My package had me iron each one for about 15-20 seconds (or more on the edges). Then I peeled the paper backing immediately for the finish I wanted on the shirts. You can also leave the paper on the shirt until its cool to get a really glossy finish. (thats just not the look I wanted)
Then repeat! 12 times! :)
The lighting made these colors look a little off (you can see the true colors in the photos at the end)
I found a really cute box that was the perfect color blue. (actually for documents, but I thought it would fit all my shirts and be a great keepsake)
Then I just folded up the shirts to fit inside! :) See! Perfect, right? :)
Then each month, Mommy can pull out the onesie and snap a photo! :)
I printed up a little note inside for the Mommy-to-be
I promise, I did tie a big white ribbon around the box to make it a little more pretty! :) I also printed up the baby's name and stuck it in the little slot on the front of the box, just forgot to get a picture! :)
(It was also a baby shower that you bring a book to for the new baby. And this is what we chose!)
