printing onesies with vintage wooden type

I'm 99% sure this will stay secret from the intended recipient here, but just in case, if you're related to me and expecting a baby, this is your first and only spoiler alert.

Is she gone? Great! Then here's the low-down.

I have a collection of vintage and antique wooden type blocks that I pull out for letterpress projects now and again. I wanted to print some onesies for a new family member, so I pulled out a box of type . . .

and printed these up, with some hand-painted accents.

Of course, this one is all hand-painted.

A fun afternoon project you can pull off during naptime!

(p.s. you can make these photos bigger by clicking on them . . . but you probably knew that!)
