Okay, I have to admit I love the DIY Trendy T-shirts we made but this Hello World baby onsie is quite possibly my favorite iron on vinyl project ever. I am actually kind of sad I don’t have anyone tiny to wear it in my own home.
Last year I did a segment on Studio 5 all about the many uses of tulle. I made this darling tutu skirt as one of the projects. Who knew a year later I would make the perfect matching top? I didn’t have this skirt in mind when I made the Hello World baby onsie but once I got it home I remembered this cute skirt hanging in the closet and knew they were a match made in heaven. The skirt is so simple to make, if you want to make one yourself the quickest way I can teach you is to send you over to the video where I show Brooke how I made it (you can find the video here toward the bottom of the post, the skirt instruction is at about 3:25). You could easily knock out this gift in an evening watching your favorite movie.
So so sweet together right?
To make the Hello World Baby Onsie you’re going to need just a couple supplies:
(I have the gold and white Explore Air and it is my favorite thing ever!)
(mine is a size 0-3 month and white)
Gold Glitter Iron On Vinyl
I also highly recommend a Cricut weeding tool
Because for once in my life I thought ahead I saved this project which means I can share it with you, you don’t even have to try to recreate it! That may be my favorite feature in Cricut Design Space, we can share projects with each other…no more recreating the wheel.
You can find the cut file here.
I cut both the hello and world out in the gold glitter iron on vinyl so if you want different colors (maybe for a boy) just make sure you separate the two items.
To make the skirt you’re going to need:
Rolls of tulle (I used gold glitter and white sparkle)
The amount of tulle will depend on how big/long you’re making the skirt.
Ribbon (I used white satin ribbon)
(so so easy!)
This cute set is being given as a gift, I really hope I get to see a photo of it on because I am just dying over it. I wanted to make myself one and Paula told me no which is how my Wild World shirt came about, there is something about the globe in gold glitter iron on vinyl that has pulled me in and stolen my heart.
Here are a few tips/tricks to working with glitter iron-on vinyl:
1. Please please please don’t forget to mirror your image before cutting.
2. Set your machine to custom and then in the drop down menu select glitter iron-on vinyl.
3. Make sure you heat up your onsie before you lay the vinyl down.
4. Follow the directions for the glitter iron-on vinyl and then I always hit the back of the shirt 2 more times with the iron just to make sure that everything is set really well.
I have had the best success with glitter iron-on vinyl, I love using it and think it adds so much fun to everything.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and I really hope if you make this project you’ll share a photo or link with me, I would love to see it!
