First item is an Elephant with Baby Stats:
|Grey Baby Status Elephant|
This is a Cubbie elephant and is about 11 inches in height. The elephants come in several colors such as gray, light blue, pink, cream and yellow. I used a grey elephant as this gift will be for a newborn baby boy.
The baby stats were sublimated on each ear at 400 degrees for 55 seconds. They were pre-pressed at 20 seconds each. I tied the little ribbon around the elephant's neck to make him a little cuter.
Once the elephant was done, I sewed a simple little bag to put the baby elephant in. The fabric was cut at 30" width (or two 15" panels sewn together) by 24" in length.

The bottom of the bag was boxed at a 2 inch square to make a 4 inch bag base. The top has a 1 inch hem. Once the elephant was placed inside, I tied a little ribbon around it.
Second item is a fox baby onesie. (Baby's middle name is Fox) I used a fox image found on Etsy from Pixel Paper Prints.

Since the onesie is a cotton fabric, I added the image using Chromablast ink - not sublimation. The onesie is a size 3-6 months and the image was sized at 3.25" x 3.25". Application was 380 degrees for 25 seconds and pre-pressed for 20 seconds.
What's nice about this is the fox image is permanently applied. Baby's parents will not need to have any special washing instructions. The onesie can be tossed into the washer along with other washable clothing and will look great wash after wash.
Lastly, I created a fox baby card to go in the package.

I used the same fox image that was used on the baby onesie. The card is sized at 5.5" x 4.25".
