Before They Were Shirts
Before it gets to this stage, the fun begins. I find inspiration anywhere and everywhere. I sketch, sketch a little more, re-size and cut out a stencil. This is my favorite part. Then I pick colors and make a mock up. If it looks as exciting as it did on paper - it might make it to a onesie.
I've had many brilliant ideas fizzle when they turn to felt. It's an interesting medium. Some things just cannot be done. Right now I'm playing with the idea of a fish (with full scales), an owl and a tree. I forgot to mention that all of my ideas begin swirling in my head - and stay there for a very, very long time.
