Do-It-Yourself | Personalized Newborn Pants

ALL THINGS BABY, DIY Baby Projects

Here’s another diy project created using my Silhouette Cameo 3 but this time I used newborn pants instead of a onsie. Not sure how I feel about them but once my little one is in them I’m sure they’ll be adorable.

I chose my favorite cursive font and used the simple text, “Baby Caleb” and “Caleb”.

In the design studio for Silhouette, I then sized them according to the size of the pants (in this case newborn size). “Baby Caleb” was approximately 2 inches wide and 5.5 inches long. “Caleb” was 2 inches wide and 4 inches long (I’ll have to double check the exact sizing. These are approximations).

Once you have the sizing you like, flip your design so it’s mirrored or backwards and then you’re finished creating the design.

For the cut settings I used “Heat Transfer: Smooth” and changed it to number 3 instead of the original setting because my blade is dull. Normally I would keep it on the preset setting.

Then send your design to cut and watch the magic happen!

Weed your design, place your design on your clothing of choice and iron. I am still using a regular iron which I feel doesn’t give the smoothest application and takes a bit longer to actually adhere to the clothing. I want to invest in the Cricut Easy Press 2 but haven’t gotten around to making the purchase.

If anyone has a review on the Cricut Easy press please let me know!

Happy crafting!

Also, please don’t mind the stained navy pant, these are hand me downs from my first son. I’ve never used vinyl on infant pants so these were also kind of a trial run that seemed very successful.

Update | Do-It-Yourself | Baby Girl Onesie

Remember that baby girl onesie “Bows and Big Brows” that I made for my niece? If not, check out my post here for a step-by-step guide on how to create this onesie yourself with a cutting machine.

Well my niece arrived about a month ago and look who finally fits into it! Isn’t she precious?!

This is the first onesie I’ve made with a baby actually wearing it. It definitely looks more adorable when there’s an adorable baby wearing it!

Here’s another diy for your shelter-in-place entertainment.

Again, using my Silhouette Cameo 3, I designed this using my favorite script font and some random “free design” accents that I downloaded for commercial use on the Silhouette Store. I placed them randomly to frame my design.

I sent my design to my cutting machine on “Heat Transfer: Smooth and changed it to setting 3 instead of 2 because my blade is getting dull.

Weed and place on a onesie and iron on! I still use a regular iron which is why I feel like my application isn’t the smoothest. I want to invest in the Cricut Easy Press 2 but that’ll have to wait. For now an iron will do.

I love that this can be personalized with baby’s last name to make it more personable.

Enjoy!

P.S. I swear that isn’t a Nike check. It was part of the free design on the Silhouette design store.

If you love this design but not up to making it yourself, you can head over to B&C Company and purchase a onesie for the little one in your life.

Do-It-Yourself | Baby Boy Onesie

ALL THINGS BABY, DIY Baby Projects

With shelter in place put in effect, I’m trying to keep busy (and sane) and decided to make a baby boy onesie for my new arrival coming June 2020.

I had a minor messed up with the peeling process after ironing on the design but since it’s for my own child I don’t mind the mess up. If it were a gift I would’ve made another one.

“Hi I’m Caleb” for our new little boy was made using the following:

1. Silhouette Cameo 3

2. Cricut Iron-on vinyl in black

3. Iron

Carter’s baby onesie in white

Just choose your favorite font and center the design so it’s even.

Flip your design so it’s reverse. This is for the cutting machine. Don’t forget to do this or it won’t iron on properly to the material.

Cut the design and iron on! That’s it! Super easy 5-10 minute craft and a personalized baby onesie for your little one.

Side Note: there was a minor issue with the “A” in Caleb because I tried peeling the clear plastic off of the vinyl when it was too hot. So please make sure to let it cool before trying to peel.

Do-It-Yourself Personalized Baby Onesies

ALL THINGS BABY, DIY Baby Projects

So ever since having my little one I’ve been completely obsessed with making personalized baby onesies. Making munchkin sizes are so much easier because you can actually complete the project in a timely matter. For example, I completed the below baby onesies for our dear friends baby shower in less than 30 minutes.

To create your own baby onesie you’ll need the following:
1. A cutting machine: I use the Silhouette Cameo!
2. Iron on vinyl: I use the Cricut Iron-on Vinyl and I purchase it from either Michael’s or Joann’s.
3. Baby attire: For this particular project I went to Target and purchased the Just One You by Carters Baby Boy 3pk

I then created the design in Silhouette Studio. Since the couple hasn’t announced the baby name, I chose Baby Flor, the last name. Once you’ve created the design you’re going to flip the design so when we iron on the design it’ll be facing the correct way.

For my cut settings I used Vinyl, Glossy and Speed 3 because my blade is very dull and I need to replace it.

Once the design is cut, weed all the excess vinyl (the parts you don’t want to iron on). You should get something like this:

Then take your iron and put it on cotton no steam setting, iron on the vinyl for approximately 30 seconds with medium pressure. I apply the iron in circular motions so that I’m not melting the material. Honestly, I’m not sure if that’s even possible but I feel like it could so I’m constantly moving the iron.

And tada! You’ve created a custom made, personalized baby onesie!
