DIY Baby Onesies

April 15, 2014

I spent my day off getting organized, taking a nap with my dogs and running errands.  In case you don’t live in the midwest and haven’t experienced our weather, this winter/spring has been absolutely fucked. Just this weekend it was in the 70’s where I was sweating and taking in the cool breeze.  Today, it was snowing by the time I got out of Babies R Us.  In any case, Babies R Us was my favorite errand of the day.  I printed out the registry for my boyfriend’s sister’s (future sister-in-law??) baby shower and made a field day going down every aisle and checking out all the latest baby trends and gadgets.  I exhausted all of the aisles and after an hour and a half thought it best I assess my purchases and make my way towards the check-out before I spotted anything else.
I made sure to pick up a pack of quality onesies and wandered next door to Hobby Lobby.  Hobby Lobby is one of those stores that I could spend forever in- wandering down every aisle making sure I didn’t miss anything.  Dreaming up crafts out of every item that I see.  After spending a little more than I originally planned, naturally, I headed home to begin my crafting sesh!

I poured a glass of wine (or 3) and let the fun begin!
What You’ll Need:
  • Baby Cap/Onesie
  • Iron-on lettering or applique (available at any craft store)
  • Iron
  • Cloth

Pre-wash everything!  I washed all of my products with warm water on a light cycle and tumble dried.
Iron out the garment and place your lettering where desired.
Place a clean cloth carefully over the lettering and iron on top of the cloth
Let cool for 1 minute and make sure all the lettering is stuck to the garment properly
Fold garment inside out and iron again
Now for the onesies!  Pre-wash the same and place lettering and appliques where desired.
Iron the front over a cloth, turn it inside out, iron it again and then let it cool for 1 minute.
So cute!
DIY: Stamped Onesie
“Future Curling Champion”
The “Dad” is into the sport of curling, big-time.  So I thought he’d enjoy having his newborn sporting a “Future Curling Champion” onesie!
I picked up a pack of letter stamps and a Fabric Ink Pad and got to work!
The process was as simple as placing the stamp on the ink pad- however it took some trial and error to see just how much ink needed to be on the letters and what technique worked to get the letters covered.
It was a little bit of dragging and dipping and just sort of being surprised and seeing what worked and what didnt.
This onesie looked the most “amateur” but still fun!  I’m overall happy with the mix I came up with!
Sure, I could have found some plain onesies with anchors on them, but having a onesie customized would have costed a pretty penny and isn’t it so much more fun to do-it-yourself!?
Questions, comments, suggestions?  Leave me something below!  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial as much as I enjoyed making it!
