Pink + Pearls!
Every time I go to look at baby clothes, I'm always checking out the cute little onesie for boys with the little necktie printed on the front! They get to look so dressed up and fancy in their little onesie, so I thought, my little girl needs something like this too! So here's how to make your little girl a pearl necklace onesie...
What you'll Need:
-A plain Onesie - I recommend black or another dark shade. Pre-washed.
-Fabric paint, white or crystal (I used crystal)
-Sewing kit (needle, thread, pins)
-Clear nail polish
Step One: Make your stencil. I didn't want a lopsided necklace so I made a easy stencil with a piece of paper. I marked my start points with a pen on either side.
Step Two: I folded the paper in half and starting at my mark I cut a half circle.
Step Three: I place the stencil where I wanted it on the onesie.
Step Four: To make even sized "pearls" I used an eraser on the end of a pencil and put a dab of fabric paint on the end of it.
First strand done here:
I added another strand below the first. You must wait at least 4 hours for the glue to dry.
Step Five: I folded over the ribbon to make a bow and pinned the middle. I then used a needle and thread to make a stitch to hold it together.
Step Six: I took another piece of ribbon and wrapped around the middle and added another stitch. Then sewed it in place where I wanted it on the onesie.
Step Seven: Clean up the edges of the bow by applying a thin strip of clear nail polish to avoid any fraying.
Enjoy your little one's adorable new onesie!!!!!
