If you're like me, you put a lot of thought into what you're going to wear when you go on a trip...weeks in advance. Okay, maybe even months. Now that I have a little person to dress also, I'm thinking about TWO sets of clothing!
Every other year we visit my family in Maryland for Christmas Day. On Christmas Eve my grandparents have a big party at their house. This is usually the one time that I see most (if not all) of my extended family in one place! It's one of my all-time favorite days of the year.
I know there are TONS of "my first Christmas" onesies and whatnot, but I like to be original. Or maybe I just like the mini adult outfits as opposed to the "cutesy" baby clothes.. Either way, I decided to make Maddox a little outfit for Christmas Eve!
This is SO SIMPLE. Here's what you need:
You also need a plain onesie. I went with white, but you could do green or red. (Or maybe you don't want it to be Christmas-y? Go with ANY color combo!)
I bought this Liquid Stitch at Walmart for under $4. The ribbon is also a Walmart purchase for $2.
So, measure your ribbon according to the length of the onesie (or t-shirt for an older child). Glue along one side and lay it on position.
Repeat on the other side.
Then lift up the un-glued edge and glue it! Be careful to not let the glue seep through to the back side of the onesie! You can place cardboard between the layers if you'd like.
I glued over top of the edges of the ribbon so that it wouldn't fray! The glue dries clear, so you really won't be able to tell that it's there.
Now for the bow tie! These ribbons are cut at roughly 5 in. and 1 in.
Find the middle of the longer piece. Glue both edges to the middle, leaving two loops.
It should look like this.
You can skip this step, I just thought it made it easier to attach the middle. I glued the vet center together to create that bow tie look.
Next, glue your short piece around the center.
Lastly, glue your bow tie onto the shirt!
I love how it turned out. It was a spur of the moment project with stuff I had laying around the house!
