Baby Shower Gift Tutorial

Baby Shower Gift Tutorial


My sister-in-law is having a baby in September! I am so excited for her and excited to be an Aunt. I love being an Aunt.  I already have two nieces and a nephew and I just adore them. 

I wanted to make her something special for the baby.  I had planned a post about the awful baby blanket I made.  I used a simple tutorial I found somewhere and sewed two pieces of flannel together.  I hated the way it turned out.  It's charming in a home-made sort of way but not perfect.  I didn't take any pictures of it so there will be no "look at this awful thing I made" post. 

I being a little hard on myself really. 

I did make a couple of baby onesies (what to do you call them? Onesies? bodysuits? snapsuits?) that I love. 

This was so easy and fun.  Here's what you'll need:

onesie, t-shirt, etc.
fabric paint
paper towel tube or toilet paper tube

Cut a circle from your tube.
Form your circle into a heart or other shape. (You can leave it a circle too!)
Dip your tube shape into fabric paint and print onto your onesie. I always forget to do this but before you begin printing or painting on a onesie or t-shirt put a piece of paper or cardboard inside.  Otherwise your paint will seep through and your onesie will stick together!


I printed several hearts on mine.


I love the way they turned out!

Here's another idea using tubes!

Feel like a lot of work? These designs are available in my etsy shop Belle Rose Designs!

I'll be linking up here this week! Check out these great parties!

  4. These are so stinking cute. I love your method.

    I would love for you to come and join my first linky party for my month long Christmas in July homemade gift event.

    These would make great presents for more than just a baby shower!
