I’ve got a big day of extended family fun ahead of me today! Hope you all have a wonderful day. :)
Today I went to a baby shower for a dear friend. Her husband is a rockstar. Seriously. So if your daddy is a rockstar, you need to be able to rock with him.
A Rockstar Onesie!
I just machine stitched on this guitar-shaped fabric applique, cut from a fat quarter. I left the edges raw, because as it washes, it will fray a little, which will add to the rockstar quality a little bit.
The hat is made from this tutorial. You may remember that I also made another one of these hats in this post. The hat is upcycled from a never-worn 4x jersey skirt that I scored at Goodwill.
Sometimes I find it hard to make gender neutral clothes, but I think a boy or a girl could easily rock out in this outfit. I just hope that this baby chooses to do his or rockin’ mostly during the day, for the sake of these newbie parents. :)

I am surrounded by boys. My kids are boys. My friends keep having boys. Seriously, there are a couple dozen kids at our church, and there is one lone girl (who can hold her own quite well, by the way). Needless to say, I get pretty excited when I have the chance to make something for a baby girl. So when one of my best high school buds told me she discovered that her December baby will be a girl, I began to see pink.
Awhile back, I ran across a tutorial for the easiest baby hat ever.
And this 0h-so-cute fabric needed to be used to make a matching onesie.
I made a template out of paper for this applique, then traced it on the reverse side of the fabric. I was having trouble with my mom’s sewing machine, so I quickly hand sewed this one onto the front.
Can’t wait to see this on that sweet baby girl!

A couple weeks ago, I broke my first needle on my sewing machine. It was a sad day, because I was finishing a project for myself, and I couldn’t get the old needle off! But of course, that problem is fixed and we are now back in business.
But before I could get back to finishing my selfish sewing (which sometimes is much more fun, I will admit), I had to whip something up for a baby shower! So, here are the baby onesies, embellished with felt. I love decorating onesies with felt. It has a fun look to it, and it’s super easy to make. Some pieces are hand-sewn (which is great for when I’m watching The Next Food Network Star, or some other TV show – I like to multi-task!), and some are machine-sewn.
(For this one, I set all the pieces up exactly how I wanted them, then took a picture to refer to as I was sewing)
This onesie has been my favorite so far. My friend whom I gave it to is doing an owl-themed nursery, and I just LOVE how it turned out.
