The Cutest Onesie You've Ever Seen!

This onesie was created by Brett.  She recreated this tutu idea, and added a fabric crown to the top.  I have taken her wonderful idea one step further by adding heat transfer vinyl to the onesie! It is easy to apply with just an iron! I also added heat-applied crystals from Hobby Lobby to the tips of the crown for some added glam.

How to make the cutest onesie you've ever seen:

  • 1 onesie
  • heat-transfer vinyl
  •  tulle
  • heat-transfer crystals
  1. Cut 4 strips (more if you want it really fluffy) of tulle 4x the circumference of the onesie
  2. Sew the strips together using the lowest stitch setting on your sewing machine.  Be sure to leave a long tail of thread at the beginning and end of the tulle strip. 
  3. Pull each thread tail so the tulle bunches evenly, until it is the same length as the circumference of the onesie
  4. Sew the crunched-up length of tulle on the onesie
  5. Cut your desired image out of heat-transfer vinyl
  6. Apply the design with an iron.  Iron the spot first to warm it, place the vinyl down (shiny side up!), add a thin layer of cloth on top, and press firmly with an iron for 1 full min. 
  7. Take off the shiny vinyl backing while the transfer is still hot
  8. Add the heat-transfer crystals to the desired location.  Place a cloth on top of them, and press down firmly with an iron for 20 seconds
  9. Oila! Enjoy the cutest onesie ever!
