Graphics Fairy for the Retro Steampunk Baby




I think we are all pretty clear about how I feel about most of the t-shirts on the market for little/young boys.. they make my blood boil. They are stupid or insulting or tacky and I refuse to let my boys wear them ( lucky for me they also do not like them)  But no little boy can live forever in a button down and khakis so t-shirts are a must sometimes. So over the course of the past year I have been creating Geek-smart-shirts for my smart young men and offering up the printable files for you to use at home.

I have made extensive use of Graphics Fairy images for these shirts and my boys get a lot of very positive comments on them. The Geek Shall Inherit the Earth   Main Men  More Geek Wear 

Today I tread into the world of baby wear. Not because it is so heinous, in fact for the most part baby wear is cute, but it's a bit expected, bears for boys, pink for girls. Very sweet but not a lot out there for the parents with a more hip and retro spirit.

Once again the GF came to my rescue with her newest upload of adorable and rather steampunk-alicious little ride toy images which were PERFECT for this project. ( Sometimes I think she reads my mind.. weird huh?)



 As usual I have edited and tweaked the files for printing and have already flipped the image and have set it on page with two sizes. One for smaller baby onsies and another a bit larger for a young toddler.


I also offer you this transferring hint.  When using Artist Transfer Paper ( the only product I recommend) trim up to the design but not so close that you compromise the image during ironing. Leave a little buffer space for best adhesion to your project.

Ready to make a cute project?.. sure you are! You can get the file here This is my Ride Transfer . If you can't get the file to download drop me a note and I will send it to you via email!

Well, this is your $million idea. Please make these, sell them. I'm tired of Disney on kids' clothes. I'm tired of the return of blue and pink by gender. I'm really, really tired of kids in camo...

I love the steampunk style. I might just have to make my little man one of these.

Love this! Thanks for the candle inspiration--I posted it on the Graphics Fairy "Brag Monday" page (Christmas Candles) and footnoted you as inspiration. I'd give you a link to all that here, but it's too confusing!

Very cute. Thanks for the gree images. btw, the transfer paper link fails :( I wish I had access to these products/graphics when my son was that young. Now as a teenager, it's tough to make these for him. I must say neither he nor I still like offensive/loud Tees. He only wears solid polos. Works for me.
