Introducing the tuxedo onesie!
This is my new favorite go-to baby gift.
Come along with me and see how to make your own...
The hardest part of this entire project was coming up with a tuxedo silhouette.
I searched Google images, and came up with nothing.
So I designed my very first silhouette inside of Photoshop!
This may not sound difficult, but it was no small feat for me.
Next, I imported my silhouette design into my Sure Cuts a Lot software.
When using heat transfer vinyl, you actually create a mirror image of your original before you cut it.
I was careful to measure the onesies and make the tuxedo images fit accordingly.
I connected my Cricut to my computer, and cut the tuxedo silhouettes out of this flocked heat transfer vinyl.
(I am totally head over heels over this vinyl, by the way! It has a nice, velvety feel to it!)
After peeling away the excess vinyl, here is the tuxedo shape left.
I followed the directions to carefully iron the vinyl onto the onesie.
All done! Now the only thing missing was a bow tie, of course!
After vinyl, felt is my next favorite thing!
I cut a bow tie shape out of red felt, and attached it to the onesie using Wonder Under.
I debated about sewing the felt down, but decided to stitch all the way around it just to be safe!
I wanted these onesies to withstand the washing machine!
Now our little guys can pull off dressy in a casual sort of way! Doesn't my nephew make a darling model?!
So what do you think??
A little formal. A little casual.
I hope you have a fabulous week!!
