DIY Mario Themed Onsies for a Baby Girl


My niece was born a few weeks ago (early March 2015). I can't wait to meet her! It is going to be a really fun Christmas this year. My niece will be eight months old and my son will be 4 months old. Babies, babies, babies for Christmas! Yay!

My brother-in-law is a total Nintendo geek. He LOVES retro nintendo. He has a game room that is nintendo themed with lots and lots of nintendo collectibles.

Their nursery is a Legend of Zelda themed nursery. I love that my sister-in-law inspired her husband to participate in the nesting by including one of his passions. I'll talk to them about taking some pictures and sharing it on the blog (but that won't be till December 2015 when we go see them for Christmas).

I decided to make my niece a couple of cute Mario themed onsies for a baby shower gift. I used images of Baby Princess Peach and Baby Princess Rosalina from Mario Kart. I found the images through a google image search. I used the phrase “Daddy’s Little Princess” for Princess Rosalina and “I’m a Peach” for Princess Peach. I designed the images in PicMonkey, inserted the images into Google Docs, and then inverted them for printing.

I purchased plain, white onesies (affiliate link) and Avery T-shirt Transfer Paper for Inkjet Printers (affiliate link). I followed the directions of the transfer paper, which worked like a charm. I really liked how they turned out and so did my brother-in-law!


Have you thought about making your own onesies or tee shirts? What would you put on your custom onsie or custom tee shirt?

  3. That led Microsoft to extend the xBox 360 S warranty to three years for hardware failure problems. Users were getting the dreaded red ring of death and a message announcing general hardware failure. domino 99

  4. Platform games have been popular probably since the debut of Mario Bros in the 1980's, and have spawned many popluar titles in the genre, with hit titles including: Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Kirby, Castlevania, Crash Bandacoot, the Mega Man series, as well as the SImpsons Game. Many of these games have similar themes: you play through different levels in various kinds of terrain, go up against an evil villain and his/her cronies (such as Dr Robotnik in the Sonic the Hedgehog series), fight plenty of huge bosses (usually cronies and close associates of the evil genius, unless if you are on the final showdown), and save the day (such as recuing Princes Peach from Bowser in Super Mario Bros). Most of these games are obviously geared more towards the younger audience (barring some games, such as the newer Castlevania games given the "M" ratings on some of the newer titles, such as "Curse of Darkness"), especially in the case of games like Mario Bros and Sonic, where kids will usually play these games more than adults do. Anyways, with that said, there another platform game that I have played through that is quite twisted when you think of it: "Conker's Bad Fur Day" (I played the Xbox version by the way). Conker's Bad Fur Day appears to be a typical 3D platform game (Super Mario 64 style), complete with a storyline, boss fights, an evil genius to defeat (namely the Panther King), and many colorful stages to play through. However, if you have checked the rating for the game, you would probably see the "M" rating. That is because Conker's Bad Fur day is pretty much a platformer that is geared more towards an older audience. Here are some features in this game you will usually not find in most other games in this genre: crazy games
