I used to love going to the fabric store with my mom to pick out fabric that she would use to make me a new dress or skirt. Unfortunately, my mom didn’t pass down any of her sewing talent to me. But when I saw Bitty Baby Blessings, I knew I had to do something with fabric. Come see how I used a few scraps of fabric and some iron-on material to create a quick and cute baby gift..no sewing required!
Start by stamping the image onto fabric scraps using Staz On ink (or another washable/permanent ink).
Cut a piece of iron-on material slightly smaller
than the piece of fabric, but larger than the image. I used Heat n Bond iron on adhesive that I picked up at Joann’s.
Iron on the adhesive to the back of your stamped image.
Cut out the portion of your image that you want to iron on to the onesie. I used two different fabric patterns and cut the elephant body and the elephant ear out of different fabrics… just like paper piecing when you’re making cards. Also, make sure you iron on the adhesive before you cut out the image. This will prevent fraying of the fabric.
Peel the paper backing from the elephant and elephant ear. Layer the two pieces on the onesie. Using the wool (or low) setting on your iron, press the fabric to the onesie and hold approximately 2 seconds.
Finish by stamping a sentiment directly onto the onesie using Staz On (or other washable/permanent ink).
I packaged a single onesie in Papertrey’s 8 oz. Round Clear Top Tin.
I used the same fabric from the onesie to piece the bunny on the packaging. Altogether, the whole project took about 25 minutes… a very quick and cute gift for any new mom! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
