The first, and probably my favorite, is this heart doily design. I first dyed fabric with Rit dye. The free doily pattern comes from Red Heart. I crocheted it with a 1.65 hook. After pressing with an iron, I pinned onto the Onesie and used my sewing machine with a zigzag stitch to secure.
You can't decorate Onesies without doing at least one with necklaces! There are a billion tutorials online. I chose to mark the cloth with chalk first to make sure it would be even. Next I used my trusty dimensional fabric paint(puffy paint) to make the "beads". I crocheted a small flower with cotton yarn, added a button and hand sewed on.
One more Onesie to go and you know how much I love Matryoshka dolls! I found a free printable from Design Is Yay and printed onto t-shirt transfer paper. After ironing on, I used dimensional fabric paint to add a design around the transfer.
I've had so much fun with this project! It's probably a good thing I only found 4 Onesies because I think I could have kept going!
Can you tell I love puffy paint? A few tips to remember are when using...1.)take your time! 2.)make sure there are no air bubbles 3.)allow to dry completely before you think about touching it!
