Bye-bye plain white onesie!!

Hellooooo stylish baby!


My inspiration for this came from Jessa Jill, she created one with cute little poppies and I just thought it was precious!

I started with a plain white tank onesie (size Newborn).  I didn't think I needed to take a pic of the before...it's a plain white onesie, we have all seen these.  :)  I am expecting a baby girl 8 weeks from today and I was looking through all of the plain onesies I had and was just sort of bored with them all.  So, I decided to start with one and see what I could do...I love it so much, you can bet I will be doing more!  And, I may make some for my etsy shop, too. 

I taught Zumba for about a year and over that year collected WAY too many expensive outfits.  I had one shirt in particular that was perfect for this project.  It's hot pink with black and white letters and I just never liked the fit of it.  We are naming the baby Avery...Zumba has an "A" the wheels were spinning!  So, I basically just cut the "A" out of the shirt, used a little bit of hot glue to hold it in place on the onesie and then stitched around it.

For the flower, I used the same shirt, cut out circles in different sizes, cut small lines around each flower to give it movement, then added a black button and stitched it to the onesie using hot pink thread that I had.  I am just loving it and I am planning to bring her home from the hospital in it.  I think I need some cute bottoms and a headband to complete the ensemble, so stay tuned for the whole outfit!

So, if you have a "Z"oey, "U"rsala, "M"adison, or "B"rooke, let me know if you'd like one!  :)
