Have you ever wondered how to make those cute custom baby onesies? Well, today I am here to show you how to make a DIY Baby Onesie with a Cricut!
We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Some dad passing off this ahhmmm ‘smells’ onto that cute little baby. Haha. Well, this shirt will have him thinking twice about that!
I recently became a proud aunty again. My little brother and his wife just welcomed their third baby into this world. Baby’s are so precious, aren’t they? My brother lives three and half hours away from me, so I haven’t been able to see this latest precious bundle of joy just yet. However, I have been busy at home creating something for my newest favorite human 🙂
READY TO DIY a Baby Onesie with a Cricut?
To make your own DIY baby onesie, you will need an svg design. If you would like to use this one and I hope you would 😉 scroll to the end of this post, subscribe, and you will be redirected to the file. Let me know if you have any issues with that.
Save the image and then upload it into Cricut Design Space. You might want to adjust the size, depending on your shirt.
Click make it, and don’t forget to mirror your image! Choose iron-vinyl as your material setting, load your mat and press go.
When your machine is done doing the hard part, unload your mat and weed your image. Weeding is basically removing all the excess vinyl off of the sticky carrier sheet.
You’ll want to get the transfer set up on your shirt. I like to mark the placement with a small line of chalk.
Remove the transfer and heat your shirt through. This removes any moisture from the material and helps your vinyl transfer better.
You’ll need to then follow the heat and time settings for your particular brand of vinyl. I have an Easypress, pictured below. One thing about an Easypress is that you can be very precise with your settings. If you don’t have one, you can also use a household iron and still get awesome results.
Put your vinyl back into place on the shirt. I recommend using a piece of parchment paper between the shirt and your heat source. Press your design, flip your shirt over to the back and press again. You should then be okay to remove your plastic carrier sheet. Follow your vinyl’s instructions whether you need to peel it back hot or cold. I have had best results when I wait a few moments for everything to cool down, but still be slightly warm.
And then TA DA!! Your diy baby onesie is complete. You are ready to impress the world with your mad diy skillz!
