Baby Onesies DIY
When I was getting ready for Mae to arrive I always saw the cutest clothes. It is definitely one of the issues with having a little girl, you want to buy everything! There are so many cute onesies out there with fun sayings on them. I decided to steal some peoples ideas and create my own at home for a much lower price than they would’ve cost online. I thought I would share with you how to do it so you can make yours as well.
I decided to use iron on’s. I went to the stores and purchase a pack plain white onesies also got a pack of 3 iron on transfers. On each sheet of iron on you can print out three or four images/sayings for a baby onesie.
While some iron on do you start to get cracked and rub off off if you find a good brand you don’t really have this issue. There are also certain things you can do to help them last longer as well such as line drying or laying it flat to dry. With babies they outgrow there cloths so quickly that they only end up wearing them once or twice anyways, so iron on’s are a fun way to go
► Towel or Ironing board
► Ink Jet Printer (preferable color)
► Iron on Transfer Paper (available at any craft store)
- Find the image you like online for make it in word.
- Resize the image to fit onto the onesie (usually max of 4″ wide)
- If you are printing word flip them so the print the mirror image
- Print out your image onto the transfer paper (follow the packaged instructions)
- Trim the image so there is not excess white space
- Preiron the onesie
- Place image face down on the onesie
- Iron the the image on making sure to give it equal heat/pressure (be sure the steam is turned off)
- Allow piece to cool
- Peel of the paper which will just leave the image behind
