Baby T-Shirt with Tie

This is the final t-shirt I'm making for my friend's baby due this month.

I got a cheap onesie from H&M and had material left over from making my cork message boards

Here's how I did it:

Draw out tie shape on slightly stiffer material to make it easier to sew the material onto the onesie (I used some left over material from our blinds upstairs)

Cut out tie knot and tie pieces separately

Cut material slightly larger than the pieces, fold it round the templates making nice sharp edges and glue it at the back

Sew tie onto the onesie using lockstitch

I used ribbon I had lying around (who am I kidding, it was neatly wrapped up in one of my boxes on my craft shelf!!) for making a pair of braces and sewed them directly onto the onesie leaving a little gap where I threaded on a metal washer and then carried on sewing so the ring is on the ribbon but can be turned round.

Can't decide which one is my favourite yet - anyone have any opinions??

  1. Better late than never, right?! I love them all, and think the sunglasses are coolest and the braces and tie the cutest. Loving your work (and tidy drawer descriptions!).
