Decorative Onsie for Baby Bryant

This is not an original idea (is there anything that hasn't been done, and blogged about?) but I saw it in a boutique and thought I can do that. Those thoughts come often and never come to fruition accept in this case!

A couple in my PA class is expecting (actually two couples are so there may be more of these in the making). This craft is for Baby Bryant.

All you need:

white onsie (mine was 0-3 months)
scrap of material
sewing machine and coordinating thread/ or fabric glue

It is super easy.

I freehand drew the tie on to the back of the fabric. Cut it out and pinned it on temporarilty.

shown here before I straight pinned it at the top and bottom.

Then I/We (the machine broke and I had to call in reinforcements) sewed it on using a zig zag stich. I am a little ashamed to say Mr. is actually the sewer in our house... I just get the projects ready. I am his sou-sewer! :( (I actually didn't realize he was so good at it until last night) He is sewing all my projects from now on!

When I whimsically asked him if we would do this for our kids, he quickly replied no! He said it was too much work.... Goodness!

I'm attempting to make Baby Bryant two more... watch for em.

This is so cute. I've seen/made the personalized burp clothes with ribbon/fabric, but I've never seen the little boy's. I wish I knew someone who was preggers...
