Easy Onesie

My baby girl goes through several onesies a day. This is a fun way to save some money, but still have a cute little stylish baby. Take some scraps of fabric left over from other projects. Buy a 5 pack of the plain white onesies for $8-$10 depending on where you buy them, and what brand you go with. Brainstorm a few ideas of what you could make with the fabric you have, draw up a little design, and go for it! Owls are all over the place, so I decided to go with a cute little colorful owl. Cut out your pieces:
Then cut out matching bond paper to each piece. Depending on the directions on the package - you should iron each piece of fabric to it's matching bond paper piece for about 2-3 seconds. 
Pull off the fabric from the paper and place it on your onesie. Start with the bottom piece and work your way up. So I did the brown, then green, pink, eyes, beak and nose. Iron each piece for about 6-7 seconds until it is secure. If you use felt you should sew it on because the bond paper doesn't adhere very well to the felt. 
If you really want to make it last sew the edge of each piece to enforce it. Within just a few minutes you've got a cute new little onesie! Anywhere from ties to butterflies the possibilities are endless!
