DIY Baby Onesies

All of my babies have been due in the spring/summer and I love that I can put them in just a onesie during the summer.  I bought a pack of onesies the other day and thought it would be fun to decorate them a little.  Here's what became of them.  All were made with fabric paint - no sewing involved.


They were all pretty easy and fast to make and they'd make a fun shower gift.  Here's how I made each one.

For the faux-cross stitch heart I found a little pattern online and printed it off.


When I slipped the paper under the shirt I could see the pattern just enough to use it as a guide.

Then I took my Tulip slick fabric paint and made "X's" on each red square.


The 3-D texture of it makes it kind of fun.


The "Hi. I'm new here" shirt was just a freezer paper stencil I made.  (If you've never tried freezer paper stenciling you can watch my how-to video HERE.)


And lastly, I used an eraser to stamp dots on the last onesie.


I switched it up a little by using three different neon colors.


 And there you have 3 one-of-a-kind onesies with not too much work.


Thanks for stopping by.

  4. I always sew appliques on baby onesies, but it would be fun to switch it up and paint instead. Thanks for the great idea! I love the neon colors of the paint, and using the cross stitch pattern is pure genius :)

  12. Cheri,

    Do you put your babies on their backs to rest or their tummies? If on their tummies, paint a onsie or two on the back so the design can be seen while the baby is sleeping. Maybe one that says "I'm the sister" or "Girls Roar Too"?
