Applique Onesies

I can't think of a better way to use those scrap fabrics kicking around your craft room. These adorable onesies make the perfect handmade gift, or design and create a collection of your own.
The applique is fused onto a silky soft onesie for durability and machine stitched to reduce fraying of fabric edges. secure buttons, ribbons or ric rac for added detail!


the supplies.

onesie {solid colors work best}
an assortment of scrap fabrics
heat n bond or wonder under
paper for pattern
sewing machine {handsew is an option}
iron
buttons, ribbons or ric rac {optional}

the how-to.

1. Fuse wonder under or heat n bond to wrong side of fabric using the directions on the product.

2. Print and cut out template.

3. Trace onto wrong side of fabric backed with heat n bond or wonder under and cut out.

4. Remove paper backing.

5. Place design on onesie and iron on.

6. Straight stitch or handsew a back stitch to completely secure applique to onesie and give it a finished look.

7. Embellish with buttons, ribbons or ric rac if desired.

I tried this using heat n bond - it didn't work! The rough side of the heat and bond adhered but the other side did not and there was no paper to remove on the back.. I did end up sewing them on anyway, but I wish I knew what I was doing wrong. Maybe the wrong product? I used "heat n bond fusible interfacing," would you mind telling me exactly what you used? Thank you! - Jamie

These are the sweetest shapes! I've made my little guy (due Nov) one onesie using the elephant template, but I'll be making him LOTS more! I've shared this as part of my Pinterest Project! http://fabulouslydomesticbyambrosia.blogspot.com/2011/09/pinterest-project-day-15-simple.html

Del Puppo - the product you used is only fusible on one side. You need to find the double sided fusible webbing. It will have a peel off paper on it so you can heat bond the fabric to one side, then peel off the paper and then reheat to the clothing item to bond to that. Hope this helps! Very cute!!!

Thank you for sharing! I'm excited to make some cute onesies for my next baby.

Interfacing is for collars and is not used to fuse 2 products together. You need to make sure you get the craft heat and bond.

Very nice! Thanks for sharing the templates! I made some onesies for a baby shower gift/decor. I hung them in a clothesline and they looked so sweet. :)
