Flower Onesie Tutorial


I finally got around to making Lorelei a little something.
This is a super easy way to glamorize a plain onesie.

You'll need some felt, 2 strips of fabric, and fray check.

1. Cut two squares from felt.


2. Cut two strips of fabric...mine were about 18"-24"


3. Set your sewing machine tension to the highest setting and set your thread length to the longest setting.  Sew down the middle of your fabric strips to create a ruffle.





4. Starting at the center of your felt, sew the ruffled strip onto the square, spiraling it as you go.

It should look like this from the front when you finish the spiral

...and this on the back.

Do both flowers the same way.


5.  Squeeze the fray check across the ends of the fabric to prevent further unraveling.  I like a little unravelling because I think it looks shabby-chicy ;)



6. Lastly, sew the flowers onto your onesie.



Then put it on your baby!



She's thrilled to be wearing it, can't you tell???


This is also great for tshirts for older girls.

What a sweet sister's picture this would be to make a matching onesie and tshirt???

I hope your week has been a great one!
