Baby #2 will make her debut in just a few short weeks, and now that I have completed all of my Matron of Honor duties and my sister is happily married, I can return to the haven of my craft room and SEW! From my experience the first time around, newborns spend alot of time in clothes that are soft and comfy. As much as I would love to put this little girl in smocking daily, it just isn’t practical (or affordable, for that matter!). Although many of my clothes from Mr. Cheeks are all boy, I did uncover quite a few white onesies that are just crying out for a fabric facelift.
Today I will share two ways you can quickly and easily embellish a onesie. The first one is the ruffled collar and looks like this:
You can find a full tutorial on the Cottage Home (one of my FAVORITE sewing blogs ever!). The tutorial includes the pattern pieces. I cut the fabric for this project during one quick break in my day, and then did the sewing one evening. It was quick and fun to make. This project is a great way to use up scraps of fabric because everything for a newborn is tiny!
The second idea is the onesie dress and looks like this:
I found this tutorial on Prudent Baby, another fantastic sewing resource. Just as the tutorial states, this project comes together in about 10 minutes, and makes the cutest little outfit.
I’m really enjoying my Sewing For Baby Post Series, and would love for you to share links to your Baby Sewing Projects. You can read my first post in this series here.
