Hi, everyone! I am Courtney of Sweet C’s Designs. I have tips on a fun little blog dedicated to crafts, inspiration, recipes and photography. I am so excited to share one of my favorite current projects – DIY onesies! I turned my son’s blue Baby clothes into something suitable for a sweet baby girl.
And since I'm on the quick and easy on Sweet C’s, I promise, this doesn’t use advanced skills, expensive materials/equipment, or much active time. Scroll down to see how I young’ rotate;s onesies into a girl’s Mod hodgepodge Cabinet with fabric.
we Had our 20-week ultrasound for my baby due in April, my husband wanted to again and again for another boy. I know he wanted to have our little guy here, a buddy, a buddy – as he had grown up with his little brother. He has also rightly recognized that it would be another boy really, easy on our budget. After all, we had the Cabinet already has a DELIGHTFUL, complete, boy’s.
I, on the other hand, had visions of pink, ribbons, ruffles, and all sorts of beautiful floral designs. Guess who won? Yep – I am with a beautiful baby girl in April! I can wait’t – but I also know that the adorable girls’ clothes are more expensive than the boys’ clothing.
While I have some fun planned outfit purchases, it seems to buy stupid-a ton of new clothes, when most of the little man’s in perfect condition. While I save planning on sending some to friends, a few for a baby clothes quilt, I still have a TON of clothes in light blue or a lovely blue and white stripes. Blue is my favorite color, I knew I had to some of these adorable outfits to work for my baby girl! Is this DIY-onesies.
Well, I don’t know about you, but I'm kind of a lazy seamstress. I love to sew, but I'm not admittedly the best, when it comes to applications. I can’t get my lines to be perfect, and it totally sucks. I also hate using iron on appliques – while they are totally easy, I have an aversion to my iron, and they seem to peel always.
So I was thrilled when I ran across fabric Mod hodgepodge the other day while Hiking a aisle at my craft store. I just HAD to try it – it would work better than iron-on backing? It would take you? They hold up to a washing machine? How easy was it? Read more and see how it went!
DIY parts with fabric Mod hotchpotch
, you can First collect a series of T-Shirts and baby onesies, and cut a piece of scrap fabric. I like to cut large squares to work with, but don’t make it too large is that it manage isn’t easy to. Turn the fabric on the back, and coat with your decoupage medium. Let dry completely.
will be after drying your fabric ready to cut. I ran through my die-cutter (Yes, it really works!!!), but I would recommend going with a new/newer mat. I ended up free-hand cut most of my shapes, because I have so much to do, it seemed so much easier than loading and unloading the cutting Mat.
Just use a fabric pen to trace your shape, and cut (I have slightly the heart in the first place, because I can freehand the. . . and you’re girly!)
apply a generous amount of Mod smorgasbord on the back of the patches. You can be sure that it really is a lot on the edges (you’ll see below, what happens if I went to the light on the edges).

Let your DIY onesies to dry overnight. I don’t know if it is necessary, but I ironed it once before the wash the application. Wash like normal. I didn’t you put these in the dryer, as I’ve seen people recommend against it. I live in Colorado – so line-drying clothes is not an issue at all for me, with our dry air!
After the wash, I peeled a few of my applications a little bit at the edges. I while the skinny B not have noticed that my thicker heart, at all. I know I went a little light on the Mod-hodgepodge around the edges on a few of my applications - and these were the ones that can be peeled.
I just took a brush and painted the back of the peeled up applications with more Mod-hodgepodge. Press firmly and let dry for about 1/2 hour. Give you drag the edge of a gentle – if it comes up, add more decoupage. If it doesn’t Golden brown (I only add it once).
I washed all of my DIY onesies for a second time, before you are taking this picture – and the appliques are still as fabulous as they were before washing!
