Rosie the Riveter onesie

Pin It I love making cute and unique onesies.  I decided this week as I was searching through vintage images that I wanted to do a line of onesies featuring vintage images.  So to start us out, I had to go with my favorite, Rosie the Riveter.

Isn't this fantastic?  It's my answer to all things princess-blech.  Here's what a real woman- I mean infant baby- should wear.  ;)   I'm selling this onesie in my Etsy shop for $10, but don't forget my blogger followers can get 10% off using the code BLOGGER10. 

Want to make one yourself?  Here's an inverted image for you.  To make one: copy the image, insert into a Microsoft Word document, resize (right click, format picture, size) to be as big as you want (mine is 5"), then print onto iron-on transfer sheet.  Follow your iron-on directions to apply to a onesie.  Mine require a water-free iron, set on the cotton setting, applied for 30 seconds, moving the iron back and forth.  Remember- We Can Do It!  (Let me know if you have questions, I'll try to help you out.)

By the way, the photo is inverted because you have to print backwards onto iron-on transfers, so that once you iron them on they will read correctly.  If you have an image you want to invert, open it in Picasa, then hit Ctrl-Shift-H and it will flip it for you.  Nice tip, eh?

I got this image from Flickr: The Commons, where you can get all sorts of amazing vintage images and photos.  Check it out.  :)

Free Downloadable Cupcake Toppers & My Memories Giveaway

Pin It Have you entered the My Memories software giveaway yet?  If not, you can enter at the bottom of this post, up to 8 times total.  Why would you want this software?  Let me give you another reason.  As I have told you, you can use it to make digital scrapbook pages, cards, blog headers and buttons, and even custom designs for onesies.  Want another use?  How about printable cupcake toppers!

Aren't these adorable?  I used the My Memories software to design these cupcake toppers, as well as some cute (and free!) digital downloads from Dreamlike Magic designs.  (Look familiar?  Yeah, I used her designs for my blog headers too.  I just love the colors!)  I designed one cupcake topper, then arranged multiple copies into a printable page that looks like this:

I exported it to PDF format, and guess what- you can download it for FREE!  Only one person can win the My Memories program, but you all can have these free cupcake toppers!  I just love my readers and want to share great free stuff with all of you.  Feel free to pin these, share them with your friends, whatever!  To make this document into cupcake toppers, simply download from here, print onto cardstock, trim around the design (I used my decorative edge scissors), and stick to a toothpick or lollipop stick.  Then add them to your cupcakes!

You could use these to make all kinds of things for you party.  Add them to a kebab stick and insert them into a bouquet or centerpiece.  Cut into circles, hole punch, and string to make a custom backdrop.  Add to invitations, napkin rings, gift bags, party hats, party favors, placecards, and when you're done with the party, add to your scrapbook page.

If you'd like some of these personalized (with the birthday boy/girl's names or ages) or customized in your colors or theme, I would be happy to make them custom for you. 

Go to my Etsy page and check out my Customized Cupcake Toppers listing.  For only $7 I will make you a custom, personalized PDF file that you will receive in 1-2 days.
