Onesie & Pocket Tee {Appliquéd}

I was so excited to hear that my brother's wife had their second son on Saturday, a beautiful baby boy! I am so excited and cannot wait to meet him! :) I wanted to make him something, so.... I had seen various versions of this around, and I wanted to make one myself. So, I came up with a graphic, printed it onto printable fabric (iron-on), and then cut it out and ironed it in place! :) (I toyed with the idea of sewing them on, for added insurance.... BUT I decided that for sanity's sake- I would just "trust the product"! (Here's to hopin' that the appliqué doesn't come off in the first washing!)

I made one for both the BIG and LITTLE brother:

And that's it! As for making messes... this was barely even a mess! So fun and easy to do!

Products used in this project:


  1. Oh that is cute! Great job!


  2. What a sweet idea. I have a new cousin coming next week and you gave me an idea for a fun gift!

    I have a weekly linky party called Terrific Under Ten Tuesdays. You can link up projects made for $10 or less. I would love for you to join in sometime!

  3. That is so cute! I have wanted to do something like this for when my little one get here. Thanks for sharing over at Tuesday Tell All.



  4. These are great! I recently did my first iron design and I like how yours has a border, I tried to give part of mine a clear background and the edge of the iron on are visible. Yours looks much more seamless. Thanks for joining us at A Crafty Soiree, I also Facebooked a link to your project:)

  5. That is so stinkin' cute! Is it like an iron on transfer sheet or something? If so, the colors turned out excellent. VERY CUTE! Congrats on the new nephew.

    I'm here from Amanda's party.

  6. They are so adorable! I never used Iton-on transfers, I should try!
