I have been wanting to make some fabric enhanced onesies for Jack for a while now and finally got around to it. I decided to go with a Halloween theme and made him a pumpkin onesie.
Now, this is not a tutorial per say, but I have a few photos to show what I did in case you are interested in making some of your own.
First I used Heat n' Bond which is an iron-on adhesive that will allow the pumpkin fabric to adhere to the onesie prior to sewing. Following the instructions, I just ironed the Heat n' Bond onto the back of the orange fabric and brown corduroy. Once you have this on the back of your fabric, you can draw your shape etc. onto the fabric and easily cut it out. In this case, I drew a pumpkin onto cardstock first and got it just the way I liked it and then moved onto my fabric.
Once the pumpkin was cut out, I removed the Heat n' Bond paper backing and ironed it onto the onesie. With both the pumpkin and stem in place, I'm ready to sew.
For sewing something like this, I just move real slow so that I can go around corners and tight areas. Once the sewing was done, I just pulled my thread through and tied the threads in the back.
And that is that...super easy, but fun and cute for little ones.
Now, here is our model showing off his new shirt.
