Monthly Onesies How-to & *Free Printables*

12 month onesies

I was invited to a friend’s baby shower this last weekend. I love baby showers! And people having babies!

I knew right away that I wanted to make her a set of 12 monthly onesies to use for pictures the first year.  I have made them baby boys before but never for girls so I knew I would have to re-design them and since it is a girl, add a tutu!

Here is how they turned out:



Aren’t they ADORABLE?!?!?  I didn’t want to leave the older sister-to-be out so I made her a shirt and tutu also:

big sister She just turned 4 so she was pretty thrilled!

My mom loved the onesies so much that she hired me to make a gift set for her to give at a baby shower she was going to in a couple weeks.  The mommy-to-be loves pink and chevron so I changed the design up a little bit:


Again, SO cute!  And really pretty easy once the iron-on transfers are designed. And since I already designed them, I am passing them on to you for free!

Tips for making the onesies:

*Buy different sizes: I usually try to buy size 0-3 months for months 1 & 2; size 3-6 months for months 3, 4 & 5; Size 6-12 months for months 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10; and size 18 months for months 11 & 12.  Remember, they can always be a little big and still be cute

* Use iron-on transfers for dark material – even though you are ironing onto white fabric, these work better.  Also, it doesn’t require you to reverse them before printing

* Wash and dry the onesies before ironing on the transfers

* Follow the directions on the package! 🙂

It’s really that simple: print , cut out, iron on.  And the best part is they are always one of the favorite gifts and make everyone “ooh and ahh!”.
