Pin It
We have a winner!!
Toni from pinkstar

I'll be posting another giveaway later today!!!


Pick up a copy at your local Barnes and Noble or
get it shipped to you from Barnes and Noble or Amazon.

Thanks Thanks Thanks!
Big hugs and crafty kisses to all the moms and soon-to-be moms who have sent me letters about my new book. I truly appreciate your kind words. I had so much fun writing and designing this book. The little snapsuits were the perfect canvas and babies are the perfect muse.

New Mom (or mom to be) Gift Idea!
If you know a new mom or have a friend who is expecting, head on over to your local Barnes and Noble and grab a copy of the book! They are selling like hot cakes on Sunday morning. In fact, I am super excited to report that 101 Snappy Fashions is already going into a second printing!

Flickr Fans!
I have been getting lots of emails with pictures of snapsuits and toddler tees created from the book. I love seeing all the pictures so much and I want to be able to share them with everyone, so I set up a Flickr group where you can post all your creations. This is my first group to start, so I hope I did it right. wink wink.

  5. I have altered many baby snap suits. I have become enamored with applique. Right now, I make things for my niece and my friends children, but I am hoping my own babies will be in the very near future, but they are not on the way yet. Best to be prepared, though. ;)

  6. Creating onesies for my expecting sister-in-law was too fun.

    Using some of my graphic design skills, I played with some vector graphics and fonts to come up with printable iron-on transfers for plain white onesies. One had cute little chicks in four gender-neutral colors with "My Peeps!" across it. Another had a stroller in grungy green that read, "That's how I roll."

    A not-so-good pic of the onesies can be seen at my website (as well as a free downloadable):

    Along with other handmade and store-bought items for my SIL's baby box :-D

    The best part about baby crafts? Everything is TINY!! Love it.

  9. hi cathie! i decorated onesies for my oldest son nearly 7 years ago - i used cute baby appliques and ironed/sewed them on. since i didn't know if i was having a boy or girl at the time, i decorated them so that either could wear them. last year i had twins - a boy and a girl - and they inherited the Boy's onesies. and i was tickled that the lady bug onesie (the only one the boy didn't wear but i made anyway cos it was so cute!) could finally be worn!

I have made one of those cute onesie dresses, only my mom and I did it from scratch we couldn't find a pattern we liked IT turned out cute, We also use the embroidery machine and put fun things on shirts. I have one little girl she is 9 months old and I love to make her cute clothes.

  17. I've tie-dyed baby snapsuits for a few friends, but that's the limit of my snapsuit-alteration experience.

    My brother and his wife are having a baby and two of my good friends from high school are also pregnant, so this book would be totally awesome!

  21. SUPER PRIZE! I just altered a onsie for my 8 month old and a tshirt for my 1 1/2 year old for them to wear on easter.. its kind of like your "junior prom" one... I put a bowtie, dress shirt ruffles, and buttons on the little one, and a regular tie applique and dress shirt ruffles on the bigger one. I used red bandana fabric (because I had some scraps to use up) so I call them the "redneck dress shirts"

It's been a lot of years since I've had anyone wearing a little suit like that, but I am always on the lookout for baby gift ideas. Your book would be perfect. Thanks for the chance to win. :)

  47. I have decorated t-shirts before but haven't yet altered onesies. I want to try it out soon though!
    I haven't been able to get pregnant, yet, but since I moved in August, 13 of my friends have gotten pregnant and 3 of them have already had their babies! So if I can't yet make sweet babies things for my own little ones I will make little pretties for all the babies around me!
