Valentine's Onesie

I've been having fun with my new toy, a lovely sewing machine that I got for Christmas. I've never used one before nor did I know how to sew, but with the help of some lessons from my mom, I think I've got the hang of it.

I decided to make a Valentine's onesie for my little guy. There isn't much selection for baby boys when it comes to Valentine's attire so I thought I would make one myself.  It's a little rough around the edges, but for my first official project using my sewing machine I thought it turned out pretty good. 

{Valentine's Onesie}
* baby onesie
* fabric of choice
* heat bond
* iron
* sewing machine


1. Follow the directions on the heat bond package and apply to the back of the fabric using the iron.

2. Draw desired shape on the heat bond paper side and cut out. 

3. Apply to the onesie using the iron. Then sew around the edges using the sewing machine. 

I thought the look of a tie would be cute on the little guy and I couldn't resist the "I woof you" saying on the fabric. I added a little paw print to top it off. I can't wait to put my sweetie in it and celebrate Valentine's day with him and my husband. 

Have fun making a onesie of your own for your little bundle of joy!
