Sweet Baby Skirt and Matching Onesie Tutorial

Have a baby girl or need a gift for a shower?
This skirt and matching onesie set is so very easy to make and took me less than an hour. 
Doesn't hurt that it's super cute :)
Even a novice sewer can whip this up in no time.

I looked up skirt tutorials online for babies and most were adorable but looked a little too complicated for my one hour time limit (yes, I waited till the 11th hour to come up with a gift for my friends baby!).

Last fall, I made myself and my daughter this skirt.  Here's the website with the tutorial I used for it.

I adjusted the measurements to a 3-6 month baby.  :)  And I made it completely different.  Other than that, it's about the same.  Ha.

I almost wanted it to have a tutu look to it, so it's pretty short, but I don't think that 3 month old's care very much about modesty. 

Without further ado... The tutorial.

 (The lace is is optional.  If you don't have it, you can just fold the fabric over 1/4" and sew the edge).

 Cute skirt.  Done. 

Onesie.  I don't have any pics but the process is very, very, very, very simple. And everyone said?  Very.
*Cut a cute flower or pattern from the fabric that you used for your skirt (hint:  don't cut it perfectly yet.  Leave an inch or so around the actual flower/pattern piece that you want to use).
*Cut a piece of heat and bond approx the same size as the fabric piece.
*Iron the fabric to the paper-less side of the heat and bond.
*Carefully trim the edges around the flower or pattern.
*Peel the paper off the back and iron on to the onesie.
Here' the tutorial I made aaaages ago on how to use heat and bond for a onesie.

 I made the matching flower headband with a scrap of fabric. 
I tried to find a tutorial for it to share but maybe I'll post my own later this week :)  If you want...

PS:  the fabric I used for the skirt is from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden line.  

Do you have any questions?   Was anything not clear?  Please email me and let me know.  I'd love to help you.
