As you probably already know the Andersen home has been taken over by all things girl lately. With less than three weeks until our little princess joins our family I am excitedly finishing up a few last minute projects for her. Last week I shared matching Mama Bear and Baby Bear Cups and today I’m sharing with you one of many custom onesies I’ve made.
As I’ve been shopping online for blankets, clothes, shoes and everything in between for our little girl I’ve found some super cute graphic tees and onesies. There are some really cute sayings out there but I just can’t justify spending $20 on a shirt when I can make one for 1/10 the cost. The idea for this onesie came from one of those shirts.
I changed up the design a bit and added a crown because she’s going to be our little princess. I added the design to one of the many onesies I’ve bought from Primary.com. Primary is my go to shop for buying basics for my boys (and now Mahle) because they have the SOFTEST shirts, skirts, pants, hoodies and more and the quality can’t be beat; they don’t shrink and they get softer with every wash.

So once I had my onesie I created the design in the Cricut Design Space. I used black iron-on vinyl for the first part of the design and glitter gold iron-on for the crown and “mama”. For a step by step tutorial on how to apply iron on vinyl check out this post. But here are a few tips when applying glitter iron on with standard iron on:
-Having a good weeding tool is a must when it comes to removing the backing for iron on, especially with the glitter iron on. This one is the one I use and it’s my favorite.
-Heating up your surface prior to ironing on your design is key to making sure your design stays on for the long run.
-Make sure your iron on pieces aren’t overlapping. I made the mistake on my first iron on project and part of the gold glitter got ironed on top of the backing for the black vinyl. To avoid this you can also iron on each piece individually.
