Recipe for a Dang Cute Baby

1. Start with one pair of Baby Legs. They are a must-have for newborns. (Any product of the '80s may be tempted to call them leg warmers...don't do it.) Paired with a long sleeve onesie, they allow the ease of diaper changing with just a onesie, but whole body coverage to beat the chill. I bought this pair before Seth was even born. I love the quirky color combo, however aqua and orange are tricky colors to coordinate for a whole outfit, so until today he's never worn them.

2. Brew over medium heat: one plain white long-sleeve onesie, 1 box of RIT dye in Sunshine Orange, and hot water. Stir constantly until desired color is achieved. Rinse until water runs clear and launder. (Can you believe I couldn't find an orange onesie anywhere? Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands. )

3. Mix together newly dyed onesie with Baby Legs. Add baby. The recipe turns out better when the baby is already pretty cute to begin with.

4. Serve warm and enjoy.

I've got a tutorial for homemade Baby Legs in the works for my website. Should be up next week. Then you can make all sorts of awesome Baby Leg/Onesie combos.

Great job on the onesie...and the baby!

You're fabulous. I love it & your match job is perfect, although I think you could put him in a paper bag & he would look adorable!

I love the colors. And Seth is so dang cute! That fair skin and dark hair...yummy.
I love Baby Legs. I wish so much they had been around when my kids were tiny.

I have seen those baby leg things and have heard great stuff about them. Nice work on the matching and yes, having a cute baby to start sure does make it easier.
