Crafting Old School with Iron Ons

Finally our 6 week series on Onesies is coming to a close. Refer back through the weeks to learn how to throw a onesie making party, where to shop on the net for hipster onesies, how to make a personalized appliqué, embroidering teal ponies and using stencils. Today is probably the easiest of all the onesies, iron-ons.

I’m a big fan of making customized iron-ons myself. All you need is some of your favorite images, a scanner, computer and iron-on paper compatible with your printer. For Christmas I made Chris several different onesies for the baby with his band logo that he seemed to enjoy. For my baby shower I scanned in several of my favorite images out of my Pop Ink series of books. What baby does not look smashing in a onesie depicting a bunny with a chainsaw or Biggie Smalls?

Don’t feel like making your own Iron Ons? Well don’t forget you can find all kinds online like the whole series by Generation T, Iron On letters in badassical fonts by Dutch Trade and there is even a whole book of iron on goodness: Sukie Iron-On Craft Pad from Chronicle Books. I love the adorable designs and oodles of options by Sukie. Some of the girls at my baby shower were clever and used the Sukie iron on as a guide line and colored in the image with fabric markers or fabric pastels for extra umph.
