Mr P's Tees...new little side business
"A girl who is an artist met a boy who is a hunter. They fell in love, got married and had a son. They named him Mr. P...They decided to start a little business of cool onsies and tees for Mr P and his buddies to wear. Mr P's Tees is Brent and Lissy Compton"
Well, that is the short of it....after we had Mr P, we noticed that there were not alot of cool onsies for babies, or at least ones that we thought were cool. My husband and I are not into all the ruffles, gingham, sail boats, etc...he likes camo and dead animals, and I like drawings and live animals. HAHA!
So, after some thinking and plotting, I went to Hobby Lobby and bought some onsies, some fabric paint, some heavy paper and an exacto knife. I proceeded to hand paint a zebra design with a cut our stencil I drew on the onsie and posted it on Facebook. It got a good response.
and we are now working on 2 more designs. We will also be selling them at the August 2nd art crawl in downtown Monroe at The Becton Gallery. We figure if we break even and come up with some neat designs for our son and his friends to wear, we have succeeded.
