Oh So Sweet and Easy Baby Gift

Hi Friends!
Did you miss us? It's been a little while since our last post. We've been super busy with baby showers, husband in Haiti and getting ready to show our sweet stuff to a boutique in AH. We're showing it today so we'll post on it soon! Hopefully we'll have good news.
My "work station" getting ready for the shop. See how organized I am?I don't know about you, but I feel like it's raining babies around here lately.
I have two friends who JUST had babies. One had a boy, one had a girl. I wanted to come up with something cute to give them post-delivery. I've seen adorable personalized onesies and thought that it would be something easy and fun. And guess what? It is! With little sewing skills you too can make a personalized onesie. Don't have a sewing machine? You can easily use a needle and thread and do this by hand, too.
Time: 25 minutes
Materials Needed:
Onesies (I used 3-6 mo)
Cute fabric
Coordinating Thread
Heat n' Bond

For the boy onesie, I decided to go with a tie. I drew a tie onto the Heat n' Bond and then cut it out.

Cut out a piece of fabric a bit larger. Iron the heat n' bond with the paper side UP onto the WRONG side of the fabric.

Cut the fabric to the Heat n' Bond. Peel the paper off.
Place onto the onesie where you want it. Iron on.

Now you can use your machine, or hand-stitch the edges of your fabric.
Voila! You have an adorable, inexpensive and easy gift to give ;)

I haven't sewn the "J" onto the tie yet. It was an idea that I had after I was done... Should it stay or should it go? Do you think it's cute, or too much?

Here's the "H" onesie I made for the little baby girl. So sweet.

Letters are a little more complicated. You have to trace the letter onto the Heat n' Bond BACKWARDS. Then follow the instructions above.
What do you think?
PS: If I didn't convince you that this was easy or you just don't feel like doing it but would like one, let us know. We'd be happy to whip one up for you.
