Monthly Onesie Stickers {free download}

I have a friend who is due pretty soon with baby #3.  Her shower is this coming weekend.  When I started thinking about what to get or make her I was a little stumped because this is baby #3, they don't know the sex yet, and they have one of each gender already.  So, there really isn't much she needs.  I think most people are getting her diapers...you can NEVER have too many of those!  But I wanted to do something more fun and I am so excited to share what I came up with! 


I've seen these on Etsy & thought they were a great idea (secretly wishing I would have done this with both my boys).  Since they needed to be gender neutral and since I already had some images from The Very Hungry Caterpillar (I'm getting ready for my little guys first birthday!) I went with that theme.  The thought crossed my mind to go ahead and adhere these to some onesies but I resisted because babies grow at such different speeds.  Both my boys had doubled their birth weight by 2 months!  So, even though a set of onesies with these images would be more fun to give, I decided to give them as 'sticker's in a drawstring bag with directions on how to apply them when needed. 
I used these to print the images on.  I think the clear version would be better in case you want to stick them on a colored onesie.  I already had the white stickers so that's what I used.

 First, download and print the following images on your sticker paper.
The documents below are for personal use only.  Please use them to make gifts or for your own enjoyment but under no circumstances may you sell these documents. 




Here are the instructions that I put with the gift.  Right click on the image and save to your computer. 
I had the perfect fabric to make a cute little drawstring bag to put all the stickers in and here's how I made it.
1. Cut a piece of fabric 11"x 5"
2. Fold in half with right sides together and sew up both sides.  Stop about 2" from the top on one side to allow a place for the drawstrings.
3. Fold the top down and inch and iron. 
4. Sew 3/4" or sew from the top all the way around.  One side will have the opening for the drawstring.


5. Using a saftely pin feed a piece of ribbon through the opening you left at the top.
6. Cut out all the stickers.
Punch a hole in the instructions, place the stickers in the bag and tie with a cute bow.

You've got a really thoughtful & fun gift!


Enjoy!  Please leave me a comment if you use these- it brightens my day :)

  4. This is such a fantastic shower gift, Erica. We took monthly photos of the first year for both of our girls (in a plain white onesie with a printed out number), and everyone who sees the pictures always wished they had done it with their kids.

  6. I love this idea and went as far as to make the bag for a friend. When I got ready to download the images for the stickers, I am taken to a site (scribd) that charges a subscription fee. I gathered from the blog title that the download was free. Am I doing something wrong? Or did I miss the window to download it for free?

  12. Was just wondering if the 1 month one was supposed to say 1 months...I love this Idea but would love to change the first one to say 1 month...Is there a way to do this as it is so cute!!

  13. Love this idea, my son is 10 months and I treasure his monthly pictures already. Good call not putting them on onesies though, someone gave us a set already made and he fit the 9 month shirt at 3 months so we never got to use them. I just made my own every month because I loved the idea. I bought mine, wish I'd seen these 10 months ago!

  15. Hi, I love these stickers! However, like another post mentioned, the 1 month sticker comes out as 1 months. Anyway you can change this and repost, or just email me the changed one?
    Let me know.
    Thanks,
    Jennifer

  17. Thanks for share this post I also share with you something hope you like my post. You can use color to convey a flavor or a scent. For example, yellow makes people think of bananas and red – of strawberries. This helps a regular customer find the flavor they want quickly and a new customer check out your varieties at a glance. Thanks

  19. Thank you! Everyone is charging for their papers, and I'm thrilled to have found yours. The shower is tomorrow, and I really don't have time to be designing images and ironing onto each onesie. Plus, I love the idea of using stickers to account for babies growing at different rates. Yours are colorful, gender-neutral, and fun. I think I'm going to pop over to Barnes and Noble to pick up a copy of the book to tuck into the gift. You've saved me... I wish I could pin your post to the top of the board for everyone to find!
