DIY Iron On Onesies

My new article on the Nesting blog is up. It shows how to make iron on onesies. This project is very easy and is perfect for baby showers.


  • I *Heart* You says:

    such a cute idea! my little one on the way needs the giraffe!

  • Kendra says:

    Love these! Such a simple, graphic design, and so sweet!

  • liz stanley says:

    sometimes my iron ons come off in the wash so it's helpful to make a few quick stitches around the perimeter of the shape to hold it more permanently.

  • Whitney@Whisker Graphics says:

    These are darling! The possibilities are endless… tote bags, bibs, jeans, placemats… Nice job!

  • michelle says:

    These turned out so well! My favorite is the giraffe.

    Good job.

  • koodeker says:

    Jordan I love this! I ran out of time and had to order mine off of etsy for the shower. But yours are darling!!

  • brooke says:

    Mother of three and a half (pregnant), used to be a graphic designer and somehow lost all creativity through the years. I have been needing a creative touch in my life again and am TOTALLY inspired by you! I just went though almost a year of your blog and I am off to design. Thanks for all the inspiration!!

  • Kristen Sara says:

    What a wonderful idea!! I can't wait to host a baby shower so I can do this!

  • avant garde says:

    hi! i love your blog, just found it through oh joy!'s blog. so happy i did. enjoying reading your great posts and will be back often. i love the ideas on your posts for easy to do things yourself. like those printed bags for weddings etc. great inspiration :)

  • trupeach says:

    i may just make myself a polka-dotted giraffe tee.

  • Joanna Goddard says:

    so cute! you're so good at this stuff! xo

  • ninfa says:

    Awesome, thank you for the tutorial! I want/need to do this.

  • jennifer says:

    great DIY post! these are very cute.

  • Whatever Dee-Dee wants says:

    So cute! I cant wait to make some.

  • Linda says:

    LOVE the idea! Much better than the puffy paint onesies I had at my shower (while cute, difficult to wash and uncomfortable for baby to wear). Question: does the iron on material make it so that you have to wash/dry the onesies in a special way?

  • twin2trip says:

    Oooh this makes me happy. I will have to try this.

  • LobotoME says:

    love this idea!

    oh, and i think you posted about paper straws – found some (50 for $3) here: http://www.kikkerlandshop.com/cu13-a.html

  • Magchunk says:

    Cute! Love the giraffe!

  • Devon says:

    Thank you for this idea. I just bought the iron on materials to get this started!

  • featherbed says:

    this is sooooo cute!! I am going to try it!!

  • love.boxes says:

    We made these at a party the other night & I couldn't believe how cute they turned out even the ones the kids made were perfect!

  • we chirp says:

    I can't wait to try this! Just on my kids tshirts.

  • Heather says:

    What a great idea for a shower! So unique and I bet really fun to make!

  • jen jafarzadeh says:

    I never knew iron-ons were so easy! This is the perfect idea for a baby shower, or gift for a new mom. Thanks for the fantastic step-by-step, Jordan!

  • Megan (in Munich) says:

    I feel silly asking this, but I live abroad and have no idea how to describe iron-on fabric in German.

    If I were to purchase this online, where would I find a good selection? I have a new nephew and am heading home to CA in 3 weeks, so I could send myself some to take back with me.


  • Kara says:

    I love these and am hoping to use the idea for a baby shower! I can't seem to access the tutorial and am redirected to the conde nast website. Anyway I can get the directions e-mail or republished on the blog?!


  • Sheri says:

    I agree with Kara – I'd love to make these, but the links are going nowhere. Any way you could re-publish? Thanks in advance!
