One of Two & Two of Two

My cousin is having twins! One is a boy and one is a girl. I wanted to get something for the baby shower for them that matched somewhat, but finding matching outfits for a boy and a girl is a little difficult. Then it came to me. Why not make them something? I came up with the idea of using the common phrases for a pair of items-"one of two" and "two of two". It was fairly simple, and here's how I did it:

I bought two plain newborn size onesies. I figured white would be a nice neutral color.

I created my design and printed it as a mirror image on t-shirt transfer paper.
I followed the instructions with the transfer paper to transfer my images on the onesies. I did have a little bit of difficultly peeling of the backing of the paper, but after working at it a little, I was able to get the paper off. Here's how they turned out:
