The perfect gift for any new parent -- a WISHFUL THINKING ONESIE! Just set the clock for the time you HOPE your child will wake up, then pass out on your bed and keep your fingers crossed that tonight, he or she will sleep for longer than 3 hours at a stretch! A little subliminal messaging can't hurt, right?
This was such a fun project to make and the supply list is pretty limited:
- Blank onesie
- “WILL RETURN” sign (I got mine at Staples for under $2)
Here’s what I did:
First, I used a screwdriver to pry the red clock hands off of the clock. Then I scanned the blank clock into my computer, and doctored up the image in iPhoto (I straightened it, and took out some of the small writing on the bottom of the sign.) I dummied up the new clock with the “WILL WAKE UP AT” header in a word document using this font: Abadi MT Condensed Extra Bold.
Next, I transferred the new image to a T-shirt transfer (right side up), then cut out the image and ironed it on the onesie. To add the finishing touch, I attached the plastic clock hands using a 5/32" eyelet. That’s it! Sweet dreams little ones, and maybe a little shut eye for mom and dad too.
