Custom Baby Onesies

Our youngest is having a baby this fall. I decided to make these onesies for the baby shower gift. There are so many cute baby onesie ideas out there! See which two I picked to make using my Cricut Explore Air and Easy Press machines!

This box is from Ikea. It fits inside the Kallax unit.
New boxes are called Tjog (Link), Tjena (Link), and Kvarnvik (Link).
A fabric option is called Drona (Link). A wicker option is their Branas (Link).

Materials Required

  • Free Cricut Design Space
  • Cricut Explore Air with 12×12 Sticky Mat
  • Onesie
  • Cardboard 6″ x 12″
  • Cricut Easy Press or an Iron
  • Cricut heat pad that reflects heat
    Do not use ironing board or wool mat!
  • Weeding Pick
  • Iron-On Vinyl
Using my Cricut Explore Air 2. Any Cricut machine would work.

My Process

  1. Create Image in Design Space
  2. Cut on Cricut Explore Air Machine
  3. Weed then iron onto Onesie using Cricut Press
Weeding to remove the bits and pieces of vinyl from the cut design.

Important Reminders

  • Place cardboard inside the onesie to protect the back of onesie.
  • Select the desired font inside Design Space (you can filter to help search).
  • Place the iron-on vinyl shiny side DOWN on the mat (the shiny side is the carrier or transfer sheet).
  • Be sure to MIRROR or flip the image because we are cutting the back of the iron-on.
  • Select Everyday Iron-On Material so that the machine will kiss-cut the image and not cut the carrier sheet).
  • Cut then weed the image — be sure to double-check all the little inside pieces that you do not want to iron onto your onesie.
  • Check the proper setting for your iron-on vinyl. I used Cricut and Hobby Lobby iron on at 340 degrees for 30 seconds. Different companies have different settings. Also, notice whether they want you to remove the carrier sheet when it is warm (Hobby Lobby/Paper Studio) or wait until it cools (Cricut).
I used the fonts Jubilee – Runt and Adorable Mother Script for my designs.
