Cute Ideas For Baby Onesies

Back to the onesies…..these really are a fun gift to give, because you can personalize them.  Which makes them one-of-a-kind!

This little hot air balloon turned out really sweet….and would be cute for either a boy or a girl!  And all you need are a few scraps of fabric and 2 little buttons.  Done.

And oh my…..you guys know my love for suspenders and bowties on baby boys.  I actually created this design back when Oliver (who’s 3 1/2 now) was a baby. ((Bowtie Onesie with Suspenders Tutorial —>HERE))

And yep, the bow tie is interchangeable.  (Or even if you make just one…..it’s just nice to have it removable so it doesn’t get crumpled in the wash.)

This little iron-on rain cloud design is so sweet, and again, is darling for both boys and girls!  (Even if you don’t have a vinyl cutter…..you can make this.  More info down below.)

Did I mention I love suspenders on babies?  And look how cutie-pie hilarious they are on Max, with his little rain cloud shirt!!!

((Sometimes modeling for mom gets exhausting. Ha! Okay, really it’s because this big 10 month isn’t super stable on that squishy arm chair.  Whoops!))

Now Max is back to work…..and in position! 😉

(He was making that face and  squealing/squawking at some of the bigger kids who were standing behind me, getting Max to smile while I was snapping a few pictures.  One thing is for sure….the baby of the family sure knows how to boss around the bigger kids.  I’m pretty sure he was telling them, “…hey, back off, I’ve got this! Let me do my thing!”  It’s actually kinda funny to watch him interact with all the bigger kids, even at such a young age.)

Good grief, I love this baby boy!

Okay, enough about Max (who I realize hasn’t made nearly enough appearances around here)…..and back to these super simple onesies!

Let me show you how to whip these up!

DIY BABY ONESIE SUPPLIES:

  • Plain Baby Onesies (I have found a few colors at Hobby Lobby. But for more options/sizes, I have bought and love these onesies.)
  • Scrap fabric (for the hot air balloon)
  • Hot air balloon template (HERE)
  • Fusible Adhesive for the hot air balloon (more about fusible adhesive HERE)
  • Iron-on vinyl  (I have used a variety of brands…..but this Cricut brand can be bought locally and online.)
  • Rain cloud template (HERE….you can upload this file into your vinyl cutter program and trace it, or cut this out and trace it onto freezer paper to make a stencil.)
  • Freezer paper (If you want to create a stencil and paint on the rain cloud design.  More on freezer paper HERE.)
  • Acrylic paint, any color (If you want to create a stencil and paint on the rain cloud design.  More on freezer paper here.)
  • Bowtie Onesie with Suspenders tutorial HERE

***If you don’t have a vinyl cutter (like a Silhouette or Cricut), you can always cut the design out yourself and iron it on piece by piece.  Or, you can do the Freezer paper method and use acrylic paint.  I love the paint method as well…..it turns out very cute! 🙂  (More about Freezer Paper stenciling here.)

Okay, first up…..the Hot Air Balloon.

  • Save

Cut out your template pieces (linked up above).  Iron some of your fusible adhesive onto the WRONG side of your fabric.  Trace your template pieces onto the paper side of the adhesive.

  • Save

Cut your pieces out and then peel off the paper backing, leaving the adhesive layer on the fabric.

  • Save

Place the adhesive side down onto your onesie and iron in place by pressing straight on top.  (Don’t pull or drag your iron.)

  • Save

Use a zig-zag stitch around the edges of the fabric and then create some straight stitches to connect the basket to the balloon….to make it look like rope.

  • Save

  • Save

Hand sew 2 little buttons to the upper corners of the basket.  And that’s it!
