Appliquéd Tie Onesie

Let’s face it… the onesie tie tutorial has been around the block or two, but I still can’t get enough of them! They are beyond adorable and make for an awesome (and inexpensive) baby-shower gift! I love the fact that you can customize them for each person you are giving them to. I downloaded the FREE pattern on Crap I’ve Made, and followed her detailed step-by-step tutorial! 

I have quite a few friends who graduated from the University of Florida. Each of them are die-hard fans, which ultimately means their children will be (forced to be) die-hard fans as well! You can customized these onesie ties with just about any type of fabric you can find! 

Pictured above is a homemade card and a two pack of customized Florida Gator onesies tied with some coordinating blue ribbon. The parents who received this belated baby gift are huge Gator fans and beyond loved the personalized onesies for their new baby boy! 

I bought some Florida State Seminole fabric to make an appliqued tie onesie for another friend of mine. 

This same friend has “a house divided” (her and her husband each graduated from a rival college). I sent one of each onesie to them; Florida State University and then one of the variations of the Florida Gator’s onesie tie. Both parents fought over which onesie the baby would wear first. 

If you haven’t gathered yet from a few of our “sports related post” we are HUGE Pittsburgh Steelers fans. I figured it was most appropriate to send the Steeler’s onesie for my cousin Ricky to wear! 

Here are the three onesies we sent to my newest cousin earlier this year. 

Here is my new baby cousin, Ricky, surrounded by all of his gifts from us, and of course modeling his Steeler’s onesie! He’s ready for Football season. Is everyone else? 

And for some giggles here is a sneak peak into our photo shoot. 
Mr. Woodsy was part of my close line! He never fails to amaze me with his eagerness to help!
