Appliqued Onesies

Threw a baby shower for a friend. Didn't want to play games. All of the guests made appliqued onesies instead. Loved the way they turned out!

(onesies started out in the "cake" and everyone had to take a "piece". please forgive the cluttered table...all of the candy and desserts were spread out and looked super cute, but we had too many little kiddos who could reach the treats! so my table got rearranged)

I asked everyone to bring some cotton fabric scraps, I printed pictures off for ideas/templates (in grayscale and on fast draft) and provided the onesies, and this is what we came with:(I generally use wonder-under/iron-on adhesive for appliques but I learned that spray adhesive works GREAT. I think you can sometimes get away without sewing around the edges with wonder-under but you most definitely have sew around the glued fabric because the adhesive will lose its stickiness over time or as you wash it)

SUCCESS!!!

That is so cute! :) Where did you find your designs? I may be helping with a baby shower in a few weeks, and what a fun idea! :)
