This summer was the summer of babies! Between basketball alums and friends and family I think I know 9 people with little babes. My sister had made potato-stamped onesies in the past and they are so adorable that we decided to make them again for our friends. What do you mean by potato stamped? Well we actually cut a sack of potatoes into different stamped shapes and created holiday themed prints on each onesie. Here’s how we did it.
1. Buy potatoes – Missy suggested to get yellow potatoes and of course I panicked because there are tons of different kinds of potatoes. We bought ours at Walmart.
2. Determine how old your little babies will be at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. We got a sampling of infant through 6-9 month-sized onesies.
4. Then you must cut the potatoes into the shapes needed: for a pumpkin we just sliced the potato in half and then carved out an eyes and a mouth. For the turkey we made different size triangles to accompany a halved potato and long slices for legs. The shapes won’t be perfect and that is okay – these are homemade after all! Once the shapes are cut you dip and stamp.
