Twin Onesies

A dear sister in my ward had twin boys recently. I can't imagine what having twins would be like. I always tell my husband that if I were to get pregnant with twins he would be sleeping on the couch for a long time. You see - his Great Grandmother had twins. A boy and a girl. They weighed 11 and 12 pounds at birth! So twins scare me. Just a little. Thankfully there are none on my side of the family.

As a little gift for these tiny new boys I made a newborn onesies. You can never have too many of those. Of course, because they were twins, I had to come up with clever matching ones. These are ideas I found in Google Image Search.

Copy & Paste Twin Onesies

I used the Silhouette to cut the freezer paper to do freezer paper stenciling. I could have waited for Heat Transfer Vinyl to arrive - but I already had good colors in fabric paint, so why wait right?

Freezer Paper Stenciling Onesies

Have you done Freezer Paper Stencilling yet? It's so easy! Once cut, you iron the freezer paper on. Just don't forget to put the little center pieces in for letters. Then you paint, allow to dry and peel the paper off. (I always put some more freezer paper on the back of what I'm doing so if the paint leaks through it does no damage.) Once it's dry I iron it to set the paint.

Paste Onesie

This is the second set. It's my favorite.

Cute right? Did you catch that though? It took me a while to get it when I found this idea online so don't feel bad. Hint: Read only the green.

Twin B

I loved them. But no, don't worry it doesn't make me want twins.

The TWIN BABY A/B idea was taken from www.snugattack.com. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery!

Just found your blog, and I love the twins shirts. I have 16 month old twins, and I just wanted to give you some peace of mind. Twins are genetic, but only effect the females. Its a gene for releasing multiple eggs at once, so your husband can't be a "twin maker" haha. I however, have twin sisters, and my mom is a twin, so I didn't have a chance! :)

These onesies are so cute! I would love to be able to make them for my sister's upcoming "twins" shower that I am hosting. I do not have a silhouette machine, do you by chance sell the stencils, or the completed onesies?
