Funny Baby Onesies Using Heat Transfer

I really like funny baby onesies!  I made this Freshly Squeezed onesie for my BFF RG’s new baby boy and I have several more in my shop!  My high school girlfriend just had a baby girl so, of course, I wanted to make her a onesie!  Since normally I get to make them for boys, I was excited to do one for a girl!  {it has pink on it! Yay!} I think I’ll add an No Sew Infant Tutu and a Rosette Headband and send her a complete little outfit!

I mean, who doesn’t love a baby in a funny little custom made onesie?  I cannot think of a person!

Here is how I made my onesie!  It’s the exact same technique that I used on my Boo Ghost Shirt and my Ho3 Kitchen Towel!  Let’s get started!!

Supplies Needed for Funny Baby Onesie:

I opened up Silhouette Studio and placed my words in the font I liked (Oswald).  I then mirrored the image!  DON’T FORGET TO MIRROR!

TIP:  To Mirror simply select your design or words, right click and select “Flip Horizontally”

I filled in the colors on the software just to get an idea of what it would look like and to help it show up better in these photos :)

Next, since I am cutting three different colors, I just want to cut one line at a time.  So I go to the cut screen (small scissors).  Then I select My 2nd and 3rd lines and then I select “NO CUT”  This will only cut my first line on my yellow heat transfer.

Cut Each Line separately

After you cut your first line, go back to the cut screen and change the first line to “no cut” and the second line to “cut” and then repeat for the third!  You are then left with three pieces of heat transfer.

Cut Heat Transfer

Weed (remove) the excess heat transfer around the wording in in the centers of the letters like O and D and A.

Then you can flip these over so they read correctly and line up on your onesie!  The shiny side of the heat transfer backing is still on at this point. Using a hot iron, place a piece of cloth over the heat transfer and iron until it is adhered to your fabric.  Remove the shiny pieces of backing.

It it took me FOREVER to figure out what “flocked” heat transfer vinyl was!   So I am trying to help those who were like me!  flocked is “fuzzy”, smooth is well…smooth.  Look at this picture, the yellow is flocked the pink is smooth!
