The internet at my house is down. Blerg. It went down last night, right before I tried to post about these onsies. I lost the entire post. Not that it was really long, but it was pretty annoying. So I’m writing this in Word because it’s better than doing dishes.
I have a sweet friend who’s having her first baby next month, a boy. I missed her baby shower because of stupid pneumonia, but I finally got her gift to her:
You may recognize the style of the ones on the left from this post, but the two on the right are some new ones I thought up (except I kind of ripped off the turtle idea from Mini Boden). The submarine is yellow, which I think makes it awesome, and the turtle wraps around to the back and he has a little tail, which I think makes that one awesome.
Some close ups:
So, I’ve been considering selling these types of onsies on Etsy. I got my shop a little bit set up months ago now, but I still haven’t done it. Maybe it’s that I’m intimidated by all the fantastic stuff on there. Maybe I’m scared nothing will sell (which when I think about it, totally wouldn’t be a big deal). I’ve mostly gotten over my other fear, which was that there were a million other shops out there doing the exact same thing. I mean, there are a lot of shops that have appliquéd onsies, but they mostly seem to be little guy ties or ones with numbers, for birthdays. And the vast majority is on plain white onsies- I don’t think I’ve seen any others that are hand dyed. Or that have a hand-appliqué component to them.So what do you think? Would mine sell? You can be honest, I can take it.
