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
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!
