It all started with a post on Pinstrosity. Cute little Minimalist Disney Onesies. With so many friends having babies right now, what better way to personalize my present than onesies?
I got all of the supplies:
Minimalist Pictures (I used some from Pinstrosity and googled the rest)
Heat N' Bond Iron-On
I bought the fabric at Wal-Mart where I found them in the reject clippings and started with cheap, white Gerber onesies, which still cost about $2.93 a piece. I went for 3-6 month and 6-9 month for a range. While I originally bought 10, I realized that once I got started it would go easy since everything was laid out, so I went back on Amazon and found these. Disney Cuddly Bodysuits for $2 a piece!!! I immediately purchased 3 different packs of 4.
They just look like they will have so much more potential than the boring white ones.
The entire process was a huge pain to set up, but it was definitely worth it once I got on a roll. Turns out I ended up ordering another 2 sets of 4 Disney onesies because I ended up having so many extra iron-ons.
Total, I will have 30 onesies for $78.20 (all supplies included). Comes out to $2.61 per onesie. The price would have been less if I wouldn’t have wasted $9.30 on the white ones instead of Disney awesomeness. Not bad at all! I am tempted to keep them all for myself.
To start, I found all of the Disney minimalist pictures that I was interested in. I sized them on a normal 8.5 x 11 paper and could fit about 2-3 to a page.
I then separated the pictures by colors I needed to cut out first and traced the piece I wanted to cut out. I did this color by color. Probably not the best way since once I traced it onto the paper, I ironed it to the fabric, then turned off the iron until I was ready with the next color. I should have done what Pinstrosity did and traced each item onto the paper and put them with their colors to iron all at once. Oh well.
Next, I lined up all of the pieces and ironed them onto the onesies. I definitely had my favorites, like the Tangled one. So cute. It’s also fun to see if people can guess which movie they are. I still have others to complete like Aladdin, Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmatians Cinderella, Cars, and so on.
