Boutique Easter Onesie

Well, it looks like I unintentionally took a little break there, huh? :)  I've been busy catching up on bow orders and planning a first birthday party, but I had to take a few minutes to make Baby E something to wear to the Easter Egg Hunt this Saturday!

I had a couple plain onesies and needed something fast (Baby E is ON THE MOVE) using stuff I already had on hand.  Did you know having a baby makes shopping trips at least 3 times as long as normal?  True story.  Anyway.  SO I have the blank onesies and of course I have plenty of fabric.  Put 'em together and what do ya got?  

Boutique Easter Onesies!


Why more than one?  Stick around and I'll let you know!

First, you'll need:
 a blank onesie or t-shirt
a scrap of fabric
iron-on tear-away stabilizer
ribbon (optional)
spray adhesive (optional)


Print out or draw an egg shape on a piece of paper.  Trace your egg onto the wrong side of your fabric scrap.  (Tip: Hold the paper & fabric up to the window to easily trace your egg.)  Cut out the fabric egg.


Turn your onesie inside-out and iron on a piece of tear-away stabilizer that is a little bigger than your egg.


Turn your onesie right-side-out.  Here is where I pinned the fabric egg on, but keep reading before you do that!


Sew right around the edges of the fabric egg with a zigzag stitch.


Oh, wait!  Do you see where the fabric is bunched up at the top?  Here's a big tip: Take your fabric egg outside and quickly spray it with a LIGHT coat of spray adhesive.  Then you can just place the fabric egg where you want it, no pins necessary and NO wrinkles when you sew!  See, no wrinkles:


Now.  If you so choose, you can add a bow to the top of the egg.  Not only does it make it cuter, it conveniently covers that wrinkle!  Did I mention after I did all the work on the first one, I realized the onesie I used was TOO SMALL?  Double check sizes before you start! Ha!


Or you can leave it plain for a boy (again with the darn wrinkle!):


If you want to take it a step further, you can add an initial to the egg.  I am so in love with how this turned out!  I can't wait for Baby E to wear it to her first Easter Egg Hunt!


And there you have it! A sweet little onesie in 15 minutes!


I'm joining up with Angie and Carolina for a week of Crafty Quickies!

So cute! I bought some onesie to do something like this, but I think she grew too fast and may be too big for them already!
