Little ones are so adorable to dress, right down to the basic onesie. But why buy the expensive embellished ones or just leave them plain white, when you can spiffy them up all on your own? Today’s project is super simple, takes only a few supplies, and can help make your baby the cutest on the block! Don’t have any little ones of your own? You can apply this technique to basically any fabric medium, from adult t-shirts to canvas tote bags.
To make the easy graphic onesie, you will need a few things:
Baby Silhouette Image printed on Iron-On Transfer Paper
A Onesie (or other fabric piece)
Let’s get started!
First, trim out the printed transfer. You could get way more mileage out of the transfer than I did, but I only have one project. If you’re doing several, arrange them into an image together and print it all out on one sheet to save time and money. Remember that the image will appear reversed, so be sure to consider that when choosing your image.
Iron the transfer onto the Onesie according to the directions on the package. Allow it to completely cool before peeling off the paper for best results.
While it’s cooling, make a tiny bow with some pretty ribbon. Use a toothpick to help put a bit of Fabri-Tac onto the back of the bow. The toothpick will help put the glue exactly where you want it without getting too much. (Fabri-Tac can be difficult sometimes!)
Then, put the bow where you want it to go. I liked using it below the curl, isn’t it adorable?
Once it’s dry, you’re ready to go! It would be a perfect baby shower gift, too!
