I happen to know a whole bunch of babies celebrating their very first Rosh Hashanah and thought I’d add some holiday flair to their baby gifts. To start, I needed the perfect canvas – nice, soft, solid colored bodysuits (onesies). The easiest to find are the Gerber Onesies which come in several variations – long-sleeved, short-sleeved, side-snap. A little searching and I also found a bunch of Disney ones on Amazon that got great reviews and come in lots of great colors. In addition to white, I got these bodysuits with red stitching, perfect to go with apples n’ honey. The reviews did not disappoint – they are super soft and well made. Note I washed all the onesies before I started to account for any shrinkage.
My first design, for a little boy, I decided to do something a little silly and fun. I managed to find a great easy to cut shofar graphic which I then cut out of Easyweed Sky Blue heat transfer vinyl along with the sentiment (font=Berlin Sans FB Demi) using my Cameo (which if you’ve been following me for a while, you know is one of my favorite toys). The 5774 (this is the new Jewish year) was typed in Franklin Gothic Heavy and cut out of Navy Flocked vinyl. I love the result! And since I cut numbers using my Cameo, I entered it into the Silhouette Blog Weekly Shape Challenge.
Next, I saw this totally darling Rosh Hashanah bib on etsy (which if you aren’t in a crafting mood, would be a fun pre-fab alternative to today’s projects) and I decided to make my own version using several types of vinyl: black flocked, red flocked and gold glitter. Font used is Unicorn NF. All graphics from the Silhouette Online Store: apple, apple core, bee and honey pot. I have to confess though, the other inspiration for this one came from little Miss Maggie and the card she made last year.
Well, I couldn’t stop there since there are oh so many babies celebrating their very first Rosh Hashanah so I decided to keep with the apples and honey theme, this time using Pacifco and Aharoni fonts but sticking to the same colors and just changing things up a bit.
These were so much fun to make, I may just have to do a couple more! Can’t wait to see all the cuties wearing their new year gear! Do you realize Rosh Hashanah is now less than a week away???? Another kid-friendly project coming tomorrow along with a little giveaway…so stay tuned!
