Lovely Baby Shower: Decorating Onesies

When I came across this amazing baby shower by Amy of Shutterly Lovely, I was literally floored by the cuteness. I mean baby showers in general are meant to be cute, but each little element of this shower was utterly perfect.  Yellows, pinks, and oranges were the main colors of the shower, and Amy found coordinating scrapbook paper in different designs to make the bunting, the invitations, and the little cupcake flags as well.

Instead of traditional games, they had a fun project of decorating onesies.  Decorating onesies is such a great alternative for a creative group of friends!  They bought plain white onesies and then used remnant fabrics to create different shapes and designs on the onesies.

After they cut out the shapes, fabric glue was used to put it all together.  Remember to use a piece of cardboard behind the front of the onesie so the glue doesn’t soak through.  The finished onesies above are such great decorations to hang for the rest of the shower!

  1. Those onesies turned out incredible! Coincidentally, I just saw in Michael’s the other day where they actually sell plain onesis in multi packs for this very activity! Good to know!

  2. This would be great for a 2nd and beyond baby shower. A way to celebrate the baby, but not overload the parents with items they already have. Love it!

  3. great idea! You can also iron on fabric adhesive(available at Joann’s Hobby Loby, etc- next to the stabilizers) to the whole piece of remnant. The guest then just have to cut out the pieces and iron them on to the onesies…. another alternative to fabric glue :-) Very adorable shower Courtney….

    1. Thanks for the additional idea! Iron on fabric adhesive would also be perfect for this project!

  4. What a cute idea! If you have been to a lot of baby showers, you get so tired of the same old games at each one. This idea is fun and useful!

    At my step-daughter’s shower a few weeks ago, painting onesies was going to be our activity. I’m just not a fan of the games. In the middle of this drought that Texas has been in, this was the one Sunday it poured buckets all day long. Since we had it planned as an outdoor activity, it was a no go. Thought about using the garage, but that was not an option. Thought about bringing the activity inside, but would have had to clean everything up before proceeding with anything else. I was amazed anyone even showed up, it was that bad out. People would arrive and have to wait until the rain let up to come in.

  6. I’m throwing my first baby shower this spring for my sister & I’m so excited now that I’ve seen all these great ideas for decorations and things to do at the shower.
    On an unrelated note, where did you get the dish you used for the M & M’s? It’s beautiful!
    Thanks for the ideas!

  7. This is a fantastic idea! I am going to try it for my best friend’s baby shower. She has been talking about all the onesies she will need. I have a few questions, where did you get the bulk pack of onesies? Also, after washing was the fabric glue or iron on more successful?
    Thanks again!

  8. Oh my! I really like these onesies. My question is pretty basic. Does fabric glue work? I’ve never used it….not much of a fabric crafter, but wondering none the less.

  9. I did something similar to this for a friend of mine, though it was with fabric markers instead of fabric. Very cute though! I would advise though that you should get a variety of sizes of onesies, since babies grow so fast, they may not get to wear them all. If you have several sizes, once they grow out of one or two they are moving on to the next two.

  10. Hi Katie I have a couple questions…where did you purchase onesies? and second how did the guest apply them? sewing. iron or glue? Thanks for the help

  11. I have the same question as Nicole…what worked better, Iron or Glue??

  12. Super Cute!! Where did you find the designs for the cut outs?

  13. Try using a Cricut machine for cut outs. A great time saver and their templates make really cute onesies. Cut out with steam a seam backing and iron on onside. Only trick, cut with fabric side down.

  14. HERE’S A TIP– Iron on was much faster and less messy than fabric glue. Only issue I ran into was that the applique came off partially when my dryer got to hot. I’ll still use the iron on but I think I’ll do a quick stich around them next time! (btw-seen your link on front page of Pintrest & had to re-pin!)

  15. What fabric glue would you recommend?

  16. Wow, marvelous weblog formatting! How much time have you ever been posting regarding? you made blogging peek simple. The entire peek of your respective web site is amazing, since nicely because written content!
