Faux Quilted Baby Onesie

Faux Quilted Baby Onesie

Designed by
Cindi Bisson, Behind These Eyes™

Using the KellyCraft Get-it-Straight™ Laser Square made it easy to align the stamps to create the large monogram letter on this personalized baby onesie.  I designed this one for my neighbor’s adorable new daughter - Autumn Elizabeth, and her mom and I agree she will look adorable this summer wearing this with little red shorts and sandals!
