football onesie

My nephew plays football, so I thought it would be cute to make my niece a little football onesie (my sister in law made the skirt & headband...but you can find a similar tutorial here). I haven't gotten to see her in it yet, but my father-in-law sent me these cute pictures.
__________________________________________
Here's what you'll need to make your own:

a onesie (this one was 3-9 months)
some RIT dye
a bucket & hot water
piece of white felt
matching thread
needle or sewing machine
__________________________________________

I started by dying my onesie - it needed to be a nice "football" color brown. I used a bucket and followed the instructions on the box. Then I washed and dried it (actually...I made 2 in case I messed one up...)


Next, I cut my felt to resemble laces. I just eyeballed what size to make them and how they would fit best on the onesie. Piece by piece (starting with the long piece going down the middle) I machine stitched them to the onesie.


There you have it! A few easy steps and you have a cute, football onesie.
Also, before I go: Did you know that I was sharing some of my favorite finds under $10 over at Happy Go Lucky? If you have a minute, I'd love for you to check it out!

  3. This is one of the most clever costume I've ever seen - especially with big brother holding her - absolutely adorable!! We are a big football family and one day I hope to have a little granddaughter after three boys and this would be precious to have 'Daddy' holding his little football girl! Loved it - thanks for sharing!!

  8. It looks to me that your kids are enjoying their new football gear, I love that. I'm a sports fan myself and I like to dress up as well as my kids during superbowls and special sport moments. It's kind of my thing. Glad you see it the same way as I do. Nice onesie!
