Onsie Fun

This is a 2 day project; dye the first day, decorate the second day!

Onsies or shirt
Large bowl or sink
Felt or fabric
Liquid Stitch or Sewing Machine

I just followed the instruction on the dye package. I used velvet black, flamingo pink and purple. After I dyed them I washed them to make sure the didn't bleed after I applied my applique. I just let them air dry.

Next I cut all my applique's. Place a piece of wax paper inside the shirt. Then using the liquid stitch glue on your felt or fabric. Place something heavy on-top of the design to apply pressure. Let dry for 24 hours. I have never used liquid stitch so I am not sure how well it will hold up. If you are worried about it just sew it on instead.

Note: I like the uneven color created by dying the shirts. If you don't you may have to dye your onesies twice or leave them in longer.

For the ruffled onesie I used this tutorial:
