How To Make A Newborn Christmas Onesie
Here’s everything you need to know about making a baby Christmas onesie. Before you know it, you’ll have it ready to wear!
Here’s what you’ll need for this project. I’ve even included a few handy links to help you find some items faster and more easily.
- Iron-on Material (I used regular red and glitter white)
- Cricut machine (the Explore or Maker will work here) (Which is my favorite? Find out!)
- Iron or EasyPress (Here’s why I like the EasyPress)
- Weeding Tools (Optional)
- Cut File
Here are our step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process of making this infant Christmas onesie.
Get the access file and cut it from the iron-on material. Be sure to size the design to fit your onesie.
Place the material (shiny side down) on the mat and mirror the images before cutting. Then use weeding tools to remove all excess, including the centers of letters.
Next, use your Cricut EasyPress to add the design to the front of the newborn Christmas onesie.
Just put the design in place and press according to the recommendations for time and temperature on the Cricut website. I pressed my red first, removed the liner, then pressed the white.
Pro Tip: Just be sure to put the liner back over the red before pressing it for the second time to protect the iron-on. You can watch an IGTV video here of how to layer iron-on if these steps seem confusing.
Then all that is left is to step back and admire your baby Christmas onesie! Every baby will look stylish in this custom-made Santa onesie.
Imagine all of the onesies you can make with this same technique! I’m always coming up with new designs, so be sure to come back and check out what’s new!
Do you think your little one will be on the nice list this year?
Here are a couple of questions that I see readers ask about making infant Christmas onesies. If you have a question, please check to see if I’ve already answered it below. Don’t see your question? Leave it for me in the comments!
Can I use this same technique to make different sizes of garments?
Yes, you don’t need to only make infant onesies with this design or this technique. In fact, I think this same design would look adorable on a toddler’s shirt. It would be so fitting for all the mischief toddlers get into, right?
As far as the process is concerned, this process works the same whether you’re making onesies or shirts, so feel free to have fun with it!
How can I personalize this baby Christmas onesie project?
I think the best way to personalize it is to change the color of the onesie. Can’t you see this design on a green onesie or a white one? So cute!
Can I use an iron if I don’t have an EasyPress?
Yes, definitely! Just be careful not to use a setting that’s too hot and melts the vinyl, ruining the onesie. Learn more about Cricut EasyPress Versus Iron!
I hope you love this newborn Christmas onesie project and try making it for that adorable baby in your life this year!
