DIY Christmas Baby Onesie Ideas
My third grandchild was born to me on December 19. She had made this Christmas onesie for her baby a week before. Although we knew he would be a boy at the time, she made this outfit for any gender. It’s so exciting to see him wearing it!
Okay, let’s get on with the project! We are so excited! We have joined a group of talented bloggers and will share Cricut projects once per month. To see all of our projects, be sure to click the links at the bottom of this post.
I think this DIY Christmas Baby Onesie is adorable! My baby boy is due in December (***. He was born November 16 ***). I can’t wait to see him try it on. This onesie is great for Christmas and would make great gifts for baby girls or boys!
• Heat Transfer Vinyl (glitter red, silver, and glitter black)
• Weeding tool/scissors
• Cricut Explore II (on sale right now)
We purchased this DIY Christmas Baby Onesie design from Cricut Design Space. You can use any other vinyl cutter.
Because you’re working with iron-on designs, don’t forget the mirror setting. While you’re getting ready, plug your iron in.
Let it heat to the cotton/linen setting.
You will need your wedding tool after cutting your design. This will allow you to remove any excess vinyl and transfer it onto your DIY Christmas Baby Onesie. Once you have your design weeded, you can begin placing it. I eyeball the placement. Once you are satisfied with the arrangement, heat your iron. For approximately 30 seconds, press down on your iron to transfer the design. Then check to make sure it is transferred entirely to your onesie.
SIMPLE DIY Christmas Baby Onesie
My goodness, I love to sew anything with babies! It doesn’t matter if it’s for my baby. Or a gift for someone else. This project is easy to put together, and it’s quick because babies have fabric and other supplies.
A month ago, I attended a baby shower and made a few onesies for Calvin as part of her gift. These onesies turned out adorable, so I thought I would share the simple DIY Christmas Baby Onesie that I created. You never know, you might have a baby shower this weekend! 😉
Then, because I loved the way they turned out ….., I added the little raincloud design to a DIY Christmas Baby Onesie for my baby and let him join the fun.
As an aside, .who claimed my baby could grow SO big ?!?!? Waaaaaah! (My “rulebook” states that the baby of the family should stay micro-mini—but I swear, he is more significant than any of my other children at this age.
These DIY Christmas Baby Onesies are fun gifts to give because we can personalize them. They are unique and one-of-a-kind!
This cute tiny hot air balloon was and would look great for a boy or girl. All you need is a few scraps of fabric and two buttons. It’s done.
You. Know how much I love bowties and suspenders on little boys. This design was made by me back in the days when Oliver, who is now 3 1/2 years old, was a baby.
The bow tie can be interchanged. Even if you only make one. It’s nice to have it removed so that it doesn’t get creased in the wash.
This adorable iron-on raincloud design is perfect for boys and girls.
You can also make these without a vinyl cutter.
Did I mention that I love suspenders for babies? Look at my baby with his raincloud shirt! It’s so adorable every time!
Sometimes, modeling for mom can be exhausting. Ha! Oops! It’s actually because the giant 10 month doesn’t seem to be very stable on the squishy armchair.
My baby is now back at work .and in position! 😉
He was making that expression and squealing/squawking at the larger kids standing behind me. This made Max smile while I snapped a few photos. One thing is sure, The little brother of the family knows how to handle the larger kids. He was probably telling them, “…hey! Let me do my job!” It is pretty funny to see him interact with the larger children, even though he is young.
DIY Christmas Baby Onesie SUPPLIES
Plain baby onesies.
These onesies come in a variety of sizes and colors. I love them!
• Scrap fabric (for hot air balloons)
• Template for hot air balloons (HERE).
• Fusible adhesive for hot air balloons (more information HERE about the fusible adhesive)
• Iron-on vinyl (I’ve used many brands, .but the Cricut brand is available locally or online.
Rain cloud template
you can either upload the file to your vinyl cutter program, trace it, or trace it onto freezer paper.
If your goal is to make a stencil and then paint the raincloud design, you can use freezer paper.
Acrylic paint in any color (If desired, you can create a stencil to paint the raincloud design. Find out more about freezer paper.
Bowtie onesie with suspenders
You can also cut out the design yourself and iron it one by one if you don’t own a vinyl cutter, such as a Cricut or Silhouette. You can also use acrylic paint and freeze paper. It’s adorable! 🙂
Okay, the Hot Air Balloon.
• Your template pieces are linked up above. Iron some fusible adhesive onto your fabric’s wrong side. It would help if you traced your template pieces onto the adhesive’s paper side.
• Take your DIY Christmas Baby Onesie pieces apart and peel off the backing paper. The adhesive layer remains on the fabric.
• Iron your onesie by placing the adhesive side down on it. Don’t pull or drag the iron.
• To make the basket look like rope, use a zig-zag stitch to wrap the edges of your fabric. Next, create straight stitches to attach the basket to the balloon.
• Attach two buttons by hand to the basket’s upper corners. That’s all!
The rain cloud onesie.
The template can be traced using the Cricut or Silhouette vinyl cutter programs. You can then either cut the piece out with iron-on vinyl. Or cut the details from the template and trace it onto freezer paper. Cut out the shape, then trace the template onto freezer paper. Next, use a sponge brush to apply paint to the interior design.
Don’t forget to add the Interchangeable Bowtie onesie with suspenders
