'Wunder'ful Onesies

Ok! So, that was a little bit of a stretch, but I couldn't resist.

One of my friends had a baby shower over the weekend. So, I decided to make some onesies for her. One is really girly, and the other one is for the baby is throwing those midnight parties. Mom's you know what I am talking about. I even have step-by-step pictures to go along with the tutorial for the girly one this time. Shocking, I know!

Supplies you will need: Onesie, fabric and Wunder Under.

For my pattern, I went into Word and picked a font I liked. Once I printed it out, I cut it out.

I placed it on the Wunder Under backwards, and traced around it.

I then cut it out.

Iron this onto your fabric piece on the wrong side. Then, cut it out.

Peel off the paper backing, and put it on the onesie where you want it to go. Then, iron it on.

This is what it looks like at this stage. You can leave it like this, or you can do what I did. I took some coordinating embroidery thread and hand-stitched around my pattern. This just gives it a little more staying power. If you look closely in the last picture you can see that I outlined my A in purple thread.

For, a cute little touch I added a heart to the bum.

Now for my rocker onesie. What is funny about this is I told my friend before she opened my present that one onesie was kinda joke, and that if she didn't want to put it on her little girl she didn't have to. When, I told her that she proceeded to say that her husband had been looking at onesies online that had the exact same thing on them as my second onesie.

I just made a design in Word, and reversed it. Then, I printed it out on an iron-on transfer sheet. I found mine at Target. This is really easy to do. The only reason I had to reverse mine is because it had wording on it. If it's just an image, it doesn't really matter.

Hope you enjoyed my little tutorial.

Those are adorable! Silly question, but what font did you use on the A? I really like it, but didn't see anything similar in my Word.

Soooo cool! I just got a brand new nephew and his initials are also A, for Anthony, and I wanted to make the something for him. I guess great minds think alike. :)
