DIY State Baby Onesie

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

Here's a really quick (and easy!) DIY project for the baby in your life! I've been thinking about making these for a while now, so I finally made one for one of my nieces today. It seriously took me less than 20 minutes to do this onesie.

Baby onesie
Piece of fabric big enough for your state
State (cut out)
heat n bond
sewing machine w/ thread (or needle & embroidery floss)


Print off map of your state. Scale to your desired size. I printed this map poster style (4 sheets of paper for the whole map) out for my scrap map and then enlarged it 120%. Cut out desired state and a piece of heat n bond big enough for that state. Iron onto "wrong" side of fabric. Flip over & pin cut out state to "right" side of fabric. Cut out state. Remove state & backing from heat n bond. Place on onesie in desired location. Iron on. Sew around edges about 1/8th of an inch in from the edge. Pull top threads through to the back and cut off. Put on your favorite baby and enjoy! :)

And um....if you live in a square state (ahem, CO & WY), this will work for pretty much any shape you want to cut out & sew around! Go crazy! ;)
