DIY “My Dad Rocks” Onesie

My Dad Rocks Onesie - easy DIY project that baby can wear to honor dad!

I whipped up a quick onesie for Ryder so that he can show his love for “dada” on Father’s Day! I used a existing image found in the Cricut Design Space library and then added the “my” text. Like I said, super simple to do and “dada” loved it when he saw him wearing it for the mini photo shoot!  The best part is that I can add a few of the photos from our mini photo shoot into Jon’s Father’s day journal for this year!

First up, I designed this graphic using Cricut Design Space.

Then, I sent it to cut. Remember to click “mirror image” before you cut since you are cutting Iron-on vinyl.

This is a layered Iron-on Vinyl design. So you’ll want to layer the bottom first. Iron on the first layer to the onesie for 20 seconds on high heat (use a light weight cloth to put over the vinyl).

Next, place the top layer on the blue ironed on layer. Iron it on then add on the “my”.

And time for a roller coaster ride. That’s what Jon does. He makes the clicking sound and brings him as high as he can get him and then lets him go like a free-fall. And Ryder laughs and laughs. It’s so precious!
