DIY Adorable Ruffled Baby Onesie


At my sister-in-law’s baby shower, the hosts set up a cute little section to create personalized onesies for our newest member of the family {due in WEEKS!} …but I didn’t get a chance to make one and as the party was winding down I realized there were only two onesies left! I grabbed one intending on doing it there but alas, didn’t get a chance.

After a week of thinking about how to decorate this cute little tiny little little tiny, I thought wait{!}, I can actually do whatever I want!

So I basically used my petal sandal and petal sleeve ideas and baby-ized them …and it’s now clear that if I’m not careful, I will “petal” everything I own.

What You’ll Need…

* Make sure you wash all of your fabrics first.








DIY RUffled Baby Onesie


And a little asymmetrical ruffle butt!


See Delilah wearing it!

Have fun!

    September 24, 2009 |

    That baby is so loved! Go ahead and “petal” everything – I love the look. have you tried adding it to a headband? I bet some red or deep blue petals crowned over one side of your head would be beautiful.

    Or a belt…

    Or a wrist cuff…

    The possibilities are endless aren’t they? =) Keep doing the extraordinary Maegan!

    You are so creative, Maegan! I just can’t get over it! Such a cute baby tutorial. I’m so selfish, all of my D.I.Y. projects so far have been for myself! I’m going to have to take note and start making stuff for babies!

    Omgosh, I can’t believe you found MY blog. I LOVE YOUR BLOG! Ha! What a treat. (:

    Yeah, I’m all about my rotary cutter, I even love to use it on paper (which I’m sure is a total no-no).

    Did I mention I’m tickled that you found my blog?! I love to look at your gratuitous outfit post and vicariously live through your cute outfits since my days of having a reason to wear beautiful clothes are limited to nowadays. Ah well…so point is, keep posting those, they’re my little treat!

    Oh and one more thing (this is getting to be an embarrassingly long comment) I’m actually sitting here with a head full of pinned curls that I slept in thanks so your crazy afro curls post. I just love the look after they all fall out a bit. Thanks!

  • AsianCajuns (Lauren)

    September 24, 2009 |

    This is genius, Maegan!!!! My boyfriend’s sis-in-law is due in three weeks. They won’t tell us the sex, so I think it’s fair that if they have a boy or a girl, it will get a ruffle butt 😉 I love it!

    I completely missed out on the crafty gene and I’m bitter about it! I’ve tried making these little rosettes and they do not come out looking like rosettes. My mother should have worked harder to pass on the crafty genetic code, because the things you make are so pretty!
