Cutie-pie. It’s been so fun watching Chanel change over these past couple of months. She’s gonna grow out of these onesies in a hot minute!

Tina Made Appliqued Onesies

Has it come to this?

Yes. Yes it has. I am now spending the little free time I have making baby DIYs because apparently many friends are now in the life stage of…. having babies. I don’t know how this happened, but my bff from high school, my bff from college, and my bff from grad school…. are all pregnant right now.

WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE.

Anyway. Ignore my existential crisis because hot damn, these baby onesies came out cute, if I must say. I gave them to my friend Pri, whose baby shower I attended this past Saturday. Tutorial and templates (bird, giraffe, elephant) from here; heart template free-handed. I bought a pack of four Carter’s brand onesies from Target, and all fabric swatches were from scraps I had.

Directions:

  1. Iron Wonder-Under (fusible interfacing) onto fabric (both large enough to fit your template of choice).
  2. Trace your template onto the back of the Wonder-Under (which should now be fused to your fabric).
  3. Cut out your shape.
  4. Peel the backing off the Wonder-Under.
  5. Place your fabric shape onto the onesie and iron.
  6. Top stitch around the edge of your shape.

Better than the onesies was the packaging though– will save that for another post!
