Do you guys know about Maybe Matilda? Rachel of Maybe Matilda has a lot of cool stuff and this is her second project that I'm trying out.

... Pentel's Fabric Fun Pastel Dye Sticks (by the way, this is NOT a sponsored post... I just happened to pick these up from the book store a month ago). These are like your regular oil pastel but after applying to the fabric and ironing, it will not come off when you wash it.
My daughter has this old onesie that she rarely uses because she doesn't like onesies anymore. It's also size 12m... but at 22 months, it still fits Andrea.
First step is to make this onesie into a t-shirt. I simply cut off the bottom and cut the sleeves and sewed a zigzag stitch along the edges. Too lazy to hem :)
And then I used a ruler as a guide as I drew my blue lines.
One thing about these pastel sticks... they can be a little messy to use. I had to draw slowly to make sure I don't smudge. And the lines I made are probably not as straight's as Rachel's when she used paint.
After the blue lines, I drew red lines between the blue lines to make it look like the paper on notebooks being used by kindergarten and first grade students here. And then I drew the vertical line.
Rachel suggested embroidering or stamping your child's name on to the shirt. Great idea right? I decided to embroider since I think Andrea will outgrow this shirt soon and we might end up giving the shirt away. I can simply remove the stitches so that another little girl can use it.
Cute! Can't wait to have Andrea try it!
