{Tutorial} Simple Applique Onesie

Applique Onesies.
Babies go through several onesies a day, so these make great baby gifts!

Trace a shape on the SMOOTH side of Heat'N'Bond light.
I used a cookie cutter to get this heart shape:) Ha! Told you it was simple.

Iron the BUMPY side of the Heat'N'Bond to the WRONG side of the fabric.

Cut out shape and peel off the paper backing.

Place it wherever you want it.

Press with an iron to adhere it to the onesie.

Before sewing, unsnap the bottom of the onesie.

Slip the onesie around the machine so that you are not sewing the front to the back.

Stitch around the fabric.
I like to use a tight zigzag stitch to add definition.

In addition to the heart I made a simple Christmas Tree with a triangle and a tiny rectangle.
 I chose non-Christmas fabric so it can be worn at other times by other babies,
but is still cute for the season.

These were for a friend of mine who just had her sweet tiny baby girl.

Oh how fun it is to sew for a girl!

As you can see, I also made her a tiny Tutu!

We put it on her and OH. MY. YUM!

I vow to include a handmade tutu in every baby girl gift from now on.
Simple and inexpensive and oh so cute!

I will do a tutorial on that with the next one I make.

Awww. That is so cute. I have three boys so I can only drool over these sorts of things. I would love if you linked to http://www.eyeheart.ca/2011/12/anything-goes-at-eye-heart-5.html
