A no-sew 15-minute satisfying craft project!

Have you seen the fabulous tie applique onesies that are on practically every crafter's blog?

If you haven't you must be living under a rock--or perhaps you're just not perusing enough crafting blogs!  It seems as if every notable craft blog has a variation of the appliqued tie onesie.  Well, maybe this isn't a craft blog but I now have my own quicker, simpler version.  Forget pulling out the ol' sewing machine and fighting with the tension trying to get the right "zig-zag" for applique--let's keep it simple, ladies.

Here's what you need:

One plain white onesie, washed and dried
Small piece of fabric, washed and dried
Heat 'n' Bond (the no-sew kind)
Coordinating fabric paint
Tie Pattern (This is a link to a pdf created by Char @ Crap I've Made or of course you can make your own)

You'll also need an iron, some common sense and about 15 minutes.

Cut out tie pattern and set aside.  Use heat 'n' bond instructions to create a piece of "sticky backed" fabric, and cut out tie shape by tracing pattern.  Iron tie on to onesie using heat 'n' bond instructions.  Carefully outline tie edges with coordinating fabric paint like so...

let it dry according to fabric paint directions... and... lookie what we have!

This craft takes less than 15 minutes, less than $5 and very little skill--so give it a whirl the next time you need a baby shower gift for a little boy.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I'm making my dog a shirt out of one of my sleeves of an old legging and it needs a tie to spice it up. Perfect!
