Baby Shower Idea: Decorate Onesie’s

A fun activity for a Baby Shower, Decorate onesies for the new Mom

Last month myself and some friends hosted a baby shower for a soon to be born baby girl.  Since I always joke that if you come to my house I make you do crafts, I thought a baby shower crafts should be no exception.

I got the idea from the Moda Fabrics blog.  They have full instructions listed there.

I changed just a couple of things:

I pre cut out 8 stencils using my silhouette.  Just simple designs, like a butterfly, ice cream, and flowers.

I just set it all out (used my pressing board) and let them work.

I think they came out really cute!! For one last step I’m going to stitch around the appliqué with my sewing machine… just for safety reasons. (don’t want it peeling up when the baby is wearing it!)

(yes I notice that the state of Kentucky is backwards, I’m going to fix that one)

    I think I am the one who traced the Kentucky one backwards. Yes, I am a geography major, but it looks like I might be seeing things a little wonky after the many years of kids!

    I Love this idea! I am hosting a baby shower on Sunday and think this would be great (the mom the be is very craft…me not so much). Is there a place to download templates? I specifically love the KY one!

      The Kentucky template is from the Silhouette online store. I downloaded it then cut it out with my silhouette. If you don’t have a silhouette Martha Stewart has TONS of great templates for free download.
