Now it's been a long time since my girl was a baby. As memory serves, one of the essentials in our diaper bag was a clean Onesie. As a new mommy, I didn't have much time for personalizing such items for my daughter. Perhaps I was too sleep deprived. However, as an aunt, I have plenty of time to brighten up a basic five-pack of Onesies with some crafty TLC.
My first idea, applique!
- Gerber Onesies, washed and dried
- Teddy Bear Cookie Cutter from the Wilton 1993 Christmas Set
- pen, pencil or stamp pad
- fabric scrap
- lightweight, fusible interfacing
- embroidery floss
DirectionsSo, you may be looking at my materials list going, "Huh! Why would you need a cookie cutter for a sewing project?" Here's my crafting secret. Cookie cutters make great templates for applique. Even better, you probably have a stash of them buried in your cupboard somewhere. I used a teddy bear that is about 4-inches tall, but just about any simple shape will work.
Pulling this little Onesie out of the diaper bag is sure to make any mom smile.
