Sooo, I am just about 3 months away from my due date and I can honestly say I have done close to nothing for baby #2, eeek! Granted, we don’t know the gender and we have the nursery done and all of our gear already, so I guess there really isn’t much I need to do. But I still feel way behind! Anyway, I decided to start making some cute DIY Baby Onesies for the little one on the way. Since we don’t know the gender I made a few different styles using Silhouette Heat Transfer Vinyl. This kit rocks!

These were so easy to make and I am actually really excited to make some more! I did a cute vintage telephone with ‘call me’ for a little boy and a chic little onsie for a baby girl. I can’t wait to find out which one this baby will be wearing :)

The Silhouette Heat Transfer Starter Kit comes with everything that you need and great directions.

For this project, I used the black heat transfer vinyl, two 0-3 month onsies and the  Silhouette Hook really came in handy too! And you are going to need an iron and a light weight towel or cloth.

The starter kit comes with 10 free downloads but I decided to go a different route and I used this Vintage Telephone paired with text in Bookman Old Style and this Dress Silhouette paired with text in Zapfino. And just a reminder, make sure to mirror the images so they transfer the correct way.

Once my design was complete, I inserted the vinyl into my Silhouette machine with the glossy side down and changed my settings to Smooth Heath Transfer Vinyl. It says to put the blade at a 2, but I think a 3 worked better.

Peel off the excess vinyl around the shape. This is when the Silhouette Hook really came in handy!

Place the design face down on the desired surface and cover with a soft cloth. I found that a regular hand towel was too thick, you really just need a dish towel or thin cloth. Iron over the design for 40-60 seconds, pressing firmly.

Slowly pull the plastic sheet off to reveal the design. If at any time you see the vinyl not transferring, place the plastic cover back down and iron again. I had to do this a few times.

    Your onesies are so adorable, you did such a great job on them. Can hardly wait to see if boy or girl. This is such a wonderful exciting time for you and your hubs, your little one also. I don’t remember when you’re due but hope it’s soon so you don’t have to suffer thru a hot summer. I love newborns so much, they are so precious. How are you feeling? Hope all well. Happy days

    Hi, I just came over from 36th Avenue where I saw your guest post. So Cute!! I don’t have a Sihouette….*sad* but I think I’d LIKE to have one! Your little girl is lucky to have a Mom who can do so many things, and I think the newest member of your family would be cute as a bug in either of those onsies. Little girls like to be “called”, too! Have fun deciding what to do next, and congratulations on the upcoming birth.
