When I found out my friend Colleen was pregnant with her first baby I was so excited. I wanted to give her a congratulations gift. I bought a few white organic cotton body suits in a couple of sizes from Target and went over to dharma trading co. to pick out some bomb bright colors for the new arrival. I had so much fun stove top dying these and she loved the colors.
Then a few weeks ago Abby Low posted about Bobo Choses. I couldn't get these hand cut shapes out of my mind. I'm thinking of embarking on a dying/stamping variation for the next baby (sorry if this spoils anything for anyone). I think this would work really well at a baby shower too. And it sure beats the pants off puffy painting body suits for little ones.
