I had two baby showers to attend this weekend – one for each a boy and girl. I knew I wanted to give onesies because they are among the most practical of baby gifts (according to my sources, you can go through three or four a day!). But I wanted to give something fun and cute, too! Hence? Appliqued onesies. I saw TONS of pins with necktie onesies and thought they were the cutest thing ever! Bespoke baby. So I folded a piece of paper in half and created a basic pattern.
The steps are so easy it’s silly:
- Draw the shapes on the paper side of fusible webbing
- Iron to the back of the pretty fabric
- Cut out
- Peel paper
- Iron to the front of the onesie
- Machine stich around the edges
- Clip threads
For the baby girl, I used my same free-handed mushroom template and a few other fun ones – a hot air balloon, a Baby Dior-inspired bow, and hearts.
BABY GIRL ONESIES
THE BABY APRON
I also used matching fabric to make each a baby apron, following this tutorial from Jess at Craftiness is not Optional. So stinkin’ cute!!!! And seriously the easiest-to-follow instructions. I will be making these for every baby shower gift from now on!
