Tuxedo Onesie

This is a tutorial I originally posted at The Scrap Shoppe.  You may remember the tuxedo t-shirt that I posted about months ago.  Well, here is the baby version!

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.

Hanging With My Peeps

I simply didn't fight it... This time around, I busted out this holiday shirt with pride!  Easter simply wouldn't be Easter without peeps, right?!  Little Man's Grandpa already introduced him to peeps, so he got excited about his peeps shirt right away.
Yes, my Little Man immediately recognized the sicky-sweet, sugary, gooey marshmallow bunny-shaped treats.  And this makes me very proud.  That's just how we roll 'round here...
This shirt represents another perfect marriage of Silhouette's heat transfer flocked vinyl with my lovely Cricut!  Yes, it's true.  Silhouette and Cricut CAN be happy together!  My opinion of Silhouette just keeps on improving... I even met the handsome Silhouette Team at Creative Estates. (They were really the only dudes there!)

Mr. Lucky Shirt {Using Heat Transfer Vinyl}

Oh how I love the gals at eighteen25!  Their Silhouette t-shirts absolutely rock my world!  When I saw their latest and greatest St. Patrick's Day shirts, I got sucked in.
If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know I have a strange kind of addiction.  I always promise myself that I will stop making special occasion shirts for Little Man.  But somehow, at the last minute, I always feel compelled to make some kind of shirt for him to wear.

I have used all kinds of different methods.  Freezer paper stencils.  Appliques.  But over the holidays, I purchased Silhouette's flocked heat transfer vinyl for the first time.  This stuff is magic. I absolutely can't get enough of it!  (Yes, I purchase Silhouette materials to use on my Cricut. Ha ha!  If the Silhouette crew would ever like to hook me up, I would be more than willing to make a complete conversion from Cricut to Silhouette products!)
I simply designed my vinyl, cut it on the Cricut, and then followed the instructions to iron it on to the t-shirt.  The flocked vinyl has a fun, velvety feeling to it.
Little Man already wore this shirt Saturday at Denver's St. Patrick's Day Parade--which, by the way, was the best parade I've ever attended!
Are you or your family wearing anything special for St. Patrick's Day?
