DIY Personalized One Piece

Sunday, August 26, 2012
A friend of mine is having a baby girl in the next couple of weeks and I wanted to make her a small gift to celebrate her upcoming arrival. Appliqued one pieces are usually my "go to" gift because they are fun to make and people always appreciate the thought and uniqueness that goes into them. Baby Liv will be adorable in this. How could she not?


Making personalized one pieces and t-shirts is super easy following the exact same steps in my appliqued love tee tutorial. The only difference is that you will create your own template. Simply type up the name or word of your choice in the font of your choice. A larger, chunkier font is always easiest for cutting and stitching. Another thing to keep in mind is that you will need to flip the text so that it is backwards on your template. The image will be reversed once you've put your applique together. (If you have questions about making your own template, feel free to let me know and I'll be happy to help).



These one pieces whip up pretty quick and make an awesome handmade baby gift.

 

Try it! I promise - super easy. Your friends will thank you. And so will their babies.

Follow the instructions in the tutorial here.

M, I actually made one of these with the same font for a boy. I can't remember the colors I used...maybe olive green and grey? Anyhow, would be fun in another font too.

Miss "seeing" you girls! Hope you're enjoying your new adventure. xo
