Crafty Goodness ~ Applique

OK, so I've been mildly obsessed with cute little appliqued onesies lately.  I've been perusing Etsy and local shops for personalized/holiday/themed outfits for Ellison.  Usually I'd find one I loved but not in her size or some in her size that were just OK.  I figured there must be a way to make my own, so I started googling.  Now, let it be known that I am not really that crafty.  I can't draw a straight line or sew a button.  But, I am really good at following directions. :-) 

After some searching, I found two tutorials that seemed pretty simple.  I found one here and here.  So, I headed out to Michael's to buy myself some supplies.  The Heat & Bond I used specifically says DO NOT SEW, but I was fully prepared to try to hand stitch this bad boy if needed (thank you You Tube sewing tutorials!).  I started with a onesie that Ellison can wear when we watch our Pirate games from the couch.  :-)  It took me about a half hour to complete, and I think that it will go faster in th future now that I've done one!  I think it turned out super cute!

I'm heading out to JoAnn's tomorrow to pick up some fabric for a turkey onesie.  I've already got my templates and am excited to try it again!  I'll post a picture of the finished project later this week.  :-)



  1. My mom makes super cute personalized onesies. She made the babies some turkey bibs, halloween onesies, and now she's working on Christmas. Let me know if you want to see what she has because they are a great price.
