how to make an easy diy rainbow baby onesie

Are you getting ready to celebrate the arrival of a miraculous tiny human? We are and we are so very excited!

Our little guy is a rainbow after a very rough storm and I haven't been able to resist crafting some little onesies for him! 
This DIY rainbow onesie is super easy to put together! Here's what you need...
  • a onesie
  • some felt
  • a rainbow die cut (or if you don't have one, you can hand cut your rainbow)
  • felt glue (or embroidery floss)

And here's how you put it together...

  • die cut or hand cut your rainbow. I used The Stamp Market's Rainbow Stripes die to cut mine. And a little note about felt...the type of felt matters when die cutting. I highly recommend using wool or wool blend. It cuts much cleaner than using acrylic felt. Ellen Hutson LLC and Benzie Design have great felt!
  • next attach your rainbow to your onesie with glue or by stitching. I'm not a great stitcher so I absolutely love the glue! I used Tacky Glue based on Benzie Design's recommendation an it worked perfectly! If you do use glue, I recommend placing a piece of cardstock inside the onesie to keep any excess glue from soaking through the front onto the back. (You can see my little piece of cardstock inside the onesie in the pic below.)
  • and that's it! So easy right?!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
