Expecting our first baby has given me so much inspiration to make lots of fun items for our nursery and sweet little girl. I love how pinterest gives me such great ideas but my list of things to make is never ending! My first DIY project was embellished onesies. These are such fun, simple and affordable projects and the possibilities are endless!
All you need to get started are a few onesies, fabric glue and whatever items you'd like to use to embellish them.
The colored sheets are felt from my local craft store. I also had some other items that I dug out of my craft box such as some chiffon flowers and fabric scraps.
This was my first creation. I was able to create a bib style design by cutting out scallop shapes from the felt and using fabric glue to secure it.
With my second onesie, I decided to try a monogram using some scrap material that I had. I actually found this material on the clearance rack at Joannes. I thought it was the cutest and bought it for one of those projects down the road. For my letter "S", I didn't have any stencils so I drew one out on some cardstock and cut it out to use as a stencil. I then flipped my material onto the back, turned the "S" backwards and traced it. This made is much simpler to cut out!
Once I decided how I wanted it, I applied fabric glue to the back in small portions and laid it on the onesie. I added a little golden colored bow I had to give it that extra little cuteness. Later I believe I'll brush some fabric modge podge over the letter so keep the fabric from fraying on the edges. I think this is my favorite onesie I have done so far!
This onesie was much simpler to throw together. I just applied a few rosettes that I had with fabric glue.
I had so much fun putting together these little onesies today. You could also do the same sort of things with bibs and gowns! I'd love to see what ideas you come up with! If you have a fun DIY project you'd like to share with us, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
