Ribbon & Onesie Makeover #2

Ribbon & Onesie Makeover #21. Pick a onesie you would like to makeover. Iron if needed.

Ribbon & Onesie Makeover #2 - The Ribbon Retreat Blog2. Cut five to six 6″ strips of both the red and white 1.5″ grosgrain ribbon.

*For steps 5-8 you are going to be appliquing. For specific applique directions, you can visit our How To Applique tutorial here.

5. On your HeatnBond, draw a heart on the paper side of the heatnbond. I drew my heart on a small, scrap piece of heatnbond. If you are opening a new package of the heatnbond, draw or trace your heart in a corner to be the most resourceful.

Ribbon & Onesie Makeover #26. Place your heatnbond heart on top of your ribbon checkerboard, paper side up. Since the ribbon is double sided, it doesn’t matter what side of the ribbon is face up or face down.

Ribbon & Onesie Makeover #27. Iron the heatnbond and ribbon checkerboard together. Read the instructions on your heatnbond for ironing times. (I typically do about three seconds). Carefully cut out the heart and slowly remove the paper from the ribbon heart so you do not pull the adhered product from the ribbon.

9. Sew the ribbon heart to the onesie.
*Note: Make sure you do not sew the front of the onesie to the back. 🙂

11. Sew ric rac to ribbon heart. (I used a zig zag stitch).  If you would like to add a little more pizazz…you can tie a ric rac bow and sew it on to the heart in your desired location. It adds just a little more cuteness :)!!!
*Note: Again, make sure you do not sew the front of the onesie to the back. 🙂

You are done! 🙂 Yeah!

    This is really cute!! You can do any shape or design you want, awesome idea!!
    Also, great idea if you have a onesie that gets ruined by stains, you can transform it in to something “new” again!!

    Really a cute idea. I totally agree with Rebeca about using this idea to cover up stains and having a onesie that can look good again, that can be put on the top of the onesie pile again, and be used again!
