Embellish a Plain White Onesie!

Onesies make great gifts, especially if you glam them up a bit! I have a few babies to give gifts to for Christmas, including my new baby, so this is what I came up with this afternoon. I ordered these cute cupcake appliques from northernwarmthings on etsy and just ironed them on. I glammed them up a bit by glueing swarovski crystals to them to add a bit of sparkle. I love the way they turned out. I embroidered the neckline to the above onesie using a blanket stitch. So simple, but adds so much, don't you think?
This one below is actually a newborn size onesie. Don't you hate it when you first have a baby and even the 0-3 month sized clothes are HUGE? At least they've been huge on my girls. My little Hayden is a month and a half and 0-3 month stuff is still pretty big on her. Anyway, I'm getting to my point--How cute would this onesie be as a baby shower gift for baby to have something that actually fits and is unique to wear home from the hospital? I made half of a tiny tutu on a piece of elastic that I sewed on the back of this onesie to give it some flare. You can find a great tutu tutorial on I'm thinking I might add the embroidered neckline on this later when I have more time for a nice finishing touch. It's a fun project that turns out so darling. You can add your own personal style to each one you make. If you're not up for making your own and want to buy one from me, just leave me a comment. And if you don't want to buy one, but you enjoyed this post, still leave a comment :) I love hearing from people!
