With Valentines Day coming I wanted to make a little outfit for my 18 month old daughter to wear. I wanted to make something that wouldn’t take a lot of time since it won’t be worn very much.
I do love hearts, but if it’s pink and red it’s Valentines enough for me.
My mom got this onesie for the little girlie for the fourth of July. It has been too big until now. Since it was pink I thought if I covered the flag with a red flower it would be cute for Valentine’s Day.
First take the peony apart. Take the bottom petal and pin it to the center of the onesie or shirt.
Sew the flower petal to the onesie. Make sure you don’t catch the back of the onesie. You could do this with a sewing machine if you want to. I like the look of the hand stitching though. I also think it would be fun to use a contrasting color of thread.
Take the next petal and pin it on top of the other petal. As you can see I alternated the petals so that none of the flag could be seen. Sew it in place as well.
I didn’t stitch the next two petals all the way down. I just stitched them in place around the center. I sewed a button from my Flirtation Button Jar in the center. You could use the rhinestone that comes on the flower if you want to. Just glue it on with Fabri-Tac. Heck, if you want to you can glue the entire flower on using Fabri-Tac. It’s machine washable and everything!
Done! Yay, that was easy!
I’m so glad I’m not a photographer! I don’t seem to know how to make kids smile!
If you see any shine or sparkle on her face it’s because she was making her entire face and eyes pretty with my lip gloss. I had to wipe it off before the pictures, which could be the reason for the grumpy faces. HAHA
HA! Caught a smile!
This was a fun and easy little project. My daughter watched me as I made this so she was excited when she got to put it on. I’m so glad she likes pretty things!
Flower Onesies or shirts can be worn by all ages of little girls and would be so cute for Spring and Summer!
Did you happen to notice the bow in her hair? I will be showing you how to make it next week, so stay tuned!
