Fancy Frugal Life: Applique Onesies & Baby Gifts

Applique Onesies & Baby Gifts

I think there is a little baby boom going on! I love when family and friends have babies so I can make cute baby gits!! Yeah!

Here's what I've been working on!

Forget bows, now I am way addicted to cute applique onesies and shirts! These are so cute and using Wonder Under is so easy! I'm so glad I was brave enough to try this project! I just love handmade baby gifts that look like expensive boutique type goodies....I think my mommies will LOVE :)

All you need is a solid color onesie, Wonder Under, a cute shape or template, and a scrap piece of fabric big enough for your template.

First I ironed on a piece of Wonder Under to my piece of fabric. Make sure to iron on the rough feeling side to the back of the fabric. Second, trace your shape on the scrap. Cut it out. Then peel of the paper backing. Lastly, iron on your applique onto the onesie. That's it! After the first one I promise it goes fast! Also check out this helpful You Tube tutorial from Made By Mazipan.

Technically you can stop here, but since these are gifts I hand stitched around the edges. When I make these for my kids I am not doing that step. Ha!
Yes I hand stitched because I was not blessed with great sewing skills! I made a pillow case dress last year and was so angry sewing that thing for 2 days straight! ha ha (Maybe I will get better at it.)

The tie template I used is from a blog called Crap I've Made. The whale template I found at Free Applique, and added a button for his eye.

I think my little girl ones are super cute too! The princess crown was a cookie cutter I already had. I embellished with sequend buttons. The guitar template is from Trey & Lucy

I also found a matching tutu at Babys R Us for $5.00 on clearance! Plus here is a cute bib with a "cheater" applique. (Purchased at JoAnne's and ironed on). Shhhh I'm not that advanced yet!

Look at these western onesies and bib! I have a friend with the cutest cowboy nursery ever. These are for her and I love it. How cute would that boot be in pink?!

Here is one grouping I paired with some new suede shoes (BRU clearance $2.72!) and matching Baby Legs!

Speaking of Baby Legs, Here are some cute new fire fighter ones I picked up at Kid to Kid (resale store) with some store credit I had left over from my kids old clothes! This little one has a fire fighter daddy! I also scored this NEW onesie there for $2.00 and made a "cheater" bib to match :)

Thanks for stopping by!

These are adorable. I may have to make some for my sister-in-law's baby, that is if I get brave enough.

These are just the cutest gifts I've seen in a long time! Wish I had the patience and talent like you!

Thank you for the great idea! I've been wanting to use heatbond for things like this, but I hated thinking about using the sewing machine to make a stitch around. Your way is so easy! I gave you the Sunshine Award. If you'd like to accept, please go here: http://www.meldreamsoften.com/2011/06/sunshine-award.html
