Petal Onesie Tutorial

I've been away at a wedding all weekend so haven't managed to keep up my challenge to the full extent I would have liked! Bummer!! Oh well, I've still been creative thorough it all, thank goodness, I've just been without my craft supplies and sewing machine!
Seeing as I was having withdrawals, as soon as I got home I got straight into this gorgeous little project!


I found the idea at Southern Lovely (tutorial here) and thought I'd put my own little spin on it...I couldn't resist!

Felt in a variety of colours (or one..if you like)
A onesie
Pins
Sewing Machine
Scissors
Small circular item to trace (optional!)
Firstly, trace your petals using a circular item the desired size. Mine was a bottle of fabric glue!
Have a play with the petal sizes and see what suits you!
Do this in your different colours until you feel you have enough. I used a lot of guess work.



Pin all of your petals onto your onesie ensuring that colours aren't touching and they are evenly spaced. 



Sew your petals on starting with the top layer. This was a bit tricky and I was concentrating so much that I didn't take a picture, sorry! Just make sure you follow the line and keep them as aligned as possible. Also, make sure you're only sewing though the one layer of onesie too!

Here is is!

  8. Aaawww!!! What a fabulously cute outfit! Love the petals idea - babies just grow up too fast, don't they? Mine are older now, but I still love to make girly baby outfits for gifts and for sale. Thanks for sharing. Catherine
