My friend is having a girl and we threw her a baby shower to celebrate. Since I have tons of girl things that I want to make and all the supplies but little motivation, I felt this baby shower would give me the kick in the pants I need to get 'er dun.
I found a really cute onesie on etsy that I wanted to recreate. But when I bought the 6-9 month onesies, they were for my now 14 month old. I am a total procrastinator but it doesn't stop me from still using them.
I REALLY wanted to do a pink onesie with pink ruffles and so I dyed them in some RIT fabric dye. Well, there's a first for everything and this one did NOT go well. I seem to be overly confident on some things and this was one of them. I didn't let the dye powder dissolve all the way before I put my fabric in so there are dark spots all over the 2 onesies I dyed. Thank goodness I only did 2 because I was still able to use the other 3 from the package. I did also throw in a strip of a blue shirt I don't wear anymore to see if it'd dye it pink or purple. And that's what I used for the ruffles on this onesie. It also had some dark spots but they aren't as noticeable.
(I found a tutorial on fabric dying and would recommend it even though I screwed mine up. It was still helpful to have more than just the directions on the box.)tutorial here minus attaching it to a hat.
video and she gives you the basic instructions.
This one I also copied from one on etsy, I think from the same shop too. Not too hard to figure out. I just made sure to put fray check on it.
tutorial. I think it's super cute. My flower is smaller since it's for a little head. I think I went .5 in smaller than the measurements the tutorial gives.
