I recently made these onesies for a friend of mine who is expecting a baby girl and a baby boy!  I couldn't resist making them something cute and matching!

You will need:

2 onesies

applique paper (I use Steam-A-Seam)

24" polka dot fabric


permanent marker

1/4" braided elastic

I started by making the appliques.  First I cut the heart and tie shape out of paper and then traced them onto the applique paper.

I cut out the shapes, peeled the back side off of the appliques and stuck them to the back-side of the fabric.

Next I cut along the lines, removed the other side of the applique paper, and then stuck the shapes on the shirts like stickers. (I always love how easy it is to make appliques using Steam-A-Seam!)

Once I was happy with the placement of the appliques on the onesies, I pressed them with a hot iron for around 15 seconds.

To make the skirt I cut a rectangle of fabric 6"x24".  I ironed a 1/4"seam along one edge , folded it over another 1/4",   and sewed it with a zig-zag stitch.  To make the top, stretchy side of the skirt, I sewed the elastic along the top edge (using the zig-zag stitch), stretching the elastic as I went.

I folded the fabric over twice to enclose the elastic, then sewed it with the zig-zag stitch, stretching the elastic as I went.

I laid the skirt on top of the onesie and cut off the excess fabric so the ends of the skirt hung off the onesie by 1/4".

Then I sewed a 1/4" seam down the side of the skirt and attached it to the onesie by sewing a little dart on each side of the onesie.

That's all there is to it--- a fun and easy gift to make for some sweet adorable babies that I can't wait to meet!
