My best friend is having a baby girl in April. To celebrate, my mom and I had a baby shower. At the shower, we made baby onesies for the new baby - almost 20 of them. My mom bought plain onesies at JoAnn Fabrics ($9.99 for a pack of 5). We then used double-sided fusible interfacing to make iron on appliques out of fabric scraps. I highly recommend this project for a baby shower. Everyone had a great time and the baby has more onesies than she'll ever need!

What a terrific idea!  The onesies look great, & I bet you all had loads of fun!  I love the ones with the paw print & the little necktie!

Great idea!  My sister is having a baby in June and I will keep this idea in mind.

I wish I had taken more close up pictures. There were 12 girls there and we each made 1-2 onesies over the course of a couple of hours and more than a couple bottles of wine. It was such a hit we were saying that we couldn't wait for someone else to get pregnant so we could do it again! Hopefully, they'll hold up okay in the wash.

I love this! I have a grandbaby coming in May.  This would be so cool to make for her.  My daughter in law kind of beats to a differant drummer. So I can see were I can really have some fun with this.  One question though, how will they wash?

The fusible interfacing we used said that the appliques are machine washable -- just use cold water and low heat to dry. I hope they're okay.

I love this so much more that the puff painted version! I'm so stealing the bikini idea too! My friend's cousin just had a baby girl and she NEEDS this, lol!
