  15. I would love to win this giveaway- no babies on the way for me – but when my neice was in utero we decorated a bunch of onesises for her. I went to a baby shower once where we used fabric paint on onesies for the mom to be – it’s a blast.

    I have several onsies waiting to be altered. My baby boy needs some boyish atire, and he has several cousins on the way who will also need some cool onsies! wball.12@gmail.com

  17. Cathie, I have a new grandson, born one month ago and a new granddaughter born 3 days ago! They are both in the market for some very cool onsies as their mothers are very artistic and I would love to surprise them with something unique! I have done some simple embroidery on onesies but I know this book is going to get me going on a new track!

  23. SUPER PRIZE! I just altered a onsie for my 8 month old and a tshirt for my 1 1/2 year old for them to wear on easter.. its kind of like your “junior prom” one… I put a bowtie, dress shirt ruffles, and buttons on the little one, and a regular tie applique and dress shirt ruffles on the bigger one. I used red bandana fabric (because I had some scraps to use up) so I call them the “redneck dress shirts”

  24. Hmm, I think the funnest one I altered was the tie dye pumpkins for Halloween…I just had to give him a little jack o lantern on his tushy =)

  46. Anonymous says:

    I have appliqued on simple designs but have yet to use fabric paint etc, would love to try other techniques.

  47. i made a few onesies before but i never thought of patches. i liked the blue bird.

  48. I have two little ones that I want to refashion for.

  49. We used iron-on transfers to spruce up some tiny snapsuits for my daughter before she was born. I learned a valuable lesson about not using cheap transfers!

  50. I like to make matching snapsuits and undershirts for my kids for each holiday.


  51. I love altering babies clothes. I cut the front part of my friends baby’s onsie, and I turned it into a bib by using the front part where the tummy is. Then,I presented back to my friend for her baby to use again!


  52. I’ve just gotten into putting appliques (initials & basic shapes) on onesies! So much fun to do inbetween my 1 yr olds naptimes πŸ™‚
    Thanks for the giveaway chance!


  53. I’ve never decorated a onesie, but I did applique a little giraffe on a baby-sized fleece jacket once. I think it turned out pretty cute!

  54. I’ve taken onesie’s and added color to them with permanet markers. I never write the name of a child on their tops because that puts them on a first name basis with a stranger if he (or a she) can get close enough to read it. I’ve put horses and dogs on tops and used tulip paints to do the details.

  55. I have done freezer paper stenciling to onesie’s, but look forward to doing much more once I get a hold of your book.
