With baby shower invites in hand, purchase packages of onesies. These can be pre-printed onesies on clearance (ahem), or good old Gerber onesies.
Print your favorite image on your laser printer on transfer canvas. Trim, seal color with a hot iron, prep onesie with a bit of T-shirt stabilizer.
Pin image over stabilizer on onesie. Carefully stitch around image with a new, brilliantly sharp needle.
Press again. Find coordinating ribbon. Tie and gift.
Voila — African children’s wear and a creative, inexpensive shower gift idea.
