  1. Cathie, I have read your blog since you came to Denver last year to present at a craft show out here, and I loved Creative Juice! I just adopted a beautiful baby girl (3 months old) and it would be really fun to win this to make some personalized onsies for her! The 101 Snappy Fashions book looks great!

    My email is mcgonagall1@hotmail.com

  2. I am expecting and I have ty-dyed onsies-very fun. thanks!

  3. I just got your book and looking forward to making my 7 month old baby girl some cute stuff. I have altered a few onsies but nothing like you have in your book!

  4. I have appliqued a necktie on a onesie. It was before I had a sewing machine so I hand appliqued it. Oh my goodness – did it take foreever!?!!!!

  5. I’ve embroidered some onsies but this book seems like a gold mine of fresh ideas!

    I have jazzed up onsie with my students for other teachers, students or helpers when they are pregnant. My boys loved doing it.
    Personally I love the desingn you show with the anchor, my father is a tin can sailor, so it has special meaning for me and my family.

  11. I always watch your show, and am a friend on Facebook. thought the book was adorable, but didn’t really see a need to try to win it until…..I got the “are you sitting down” phone call! I’m going to be a grandma again in February! My daughter’s little girl will be five by then, and now a new baby!Yippee!

  12. What adorable ideas! I could use the ideas for projects for my grandchildren! Watch your show every week and tape each episode because you may need an idea down the road! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  13. I *LOVE* these!
    I have my second daughter due in October!!

    I’d of course love to win, but either way I’m SO snagging that book… (trots off to Amazon)

  14. Love these! Hoping I’ll be a Gma’ soon so gotta stock up! upandreasalley@gmail.com

    Hi Cathie, Thank you so much for all the fun and easy crafts you present! My children are past, way past onesies! However, I have several friends at church with adorable little ones whom I would love to make these crafts. My 12 & 15 year old daughters love crafting too!

  16. Hi,

    I definitely altered shirts & onesies for my two but they are past that age now. But our non-profit group puts together new mommy bags for all our expectant moms (30 right now) and we’re going to get together and decorate onesies to go in the bag. This kit would be super helpful with this project!!

  17. Cathie,

    My daughter and I absoultely love your designs. We love crafting together and your ideas are great.


  18. i’ve never altered a baby snap suit but i’m inspired to try it with my neice who is very creative and crafty!

  19. I just found your website.. I have altered some onsies usually by applique, an interesting motif cut from fabric. I would like to try dyeing them.

  20. Making embellished onesies is my favorite shower activity! I’m all done having babies, but I have many friends who are looking forward to little ones. 🙂

  21. Those are all so cute- I’ve altered some baby clothes in the past, and am gearing up to put together some more now that some dear friends are expecting! 🙂

  22. My son LIVES in onesies, but I’ve never altered one. I’d love to try, though!

  23. I haven’t done it yet, but I’m hoping to make an altered onesie one of these days. My sister in law has a grand child on the way, so maybe then!
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  24. I love making and giving hand made gifts. Altered onesies are the perfect shower gifts! You can customize them for the room themes, boy/girl, season, etc. I love trying new techniques and making cute one-of-a-kind treasures. Thanks for the giveaway Cathie, and all of your creative juice 😉

  25. Hello,
    My sister just bought your book and LOVES it! Can’t wait to have my own copy! Kudos on a such a great book! Hooray for giveaways!


    I totally have altered a onesie before and can’t wait to do it again!

  26. Such a fun book! I have altered a onesie before but they aren’t near as cute as the ones in the book!


  27. This is fantastic! I have two (2) grandchildren due at the end of the year. Wouldn’t it be fun to make these onesies for them?!


  28. I haven’t altered a onesie, but have made many burp cloths and blankies for newborn baby gifts. I would love to add onesies to this list!

  29. I have altered many a onesies, but I put Arabic and Farsi words on them, since I can’t find them anywhere for my friends or kids. I’ve added a princess crown with the word “Amira” which means princess in Arabic and a different one with a crown that has “Amir” which is prince.

    I’ve also altered ones with I Heart and then an image of a map Iran, with the heart in different colours of the Iranian flag.

    It would be fun to get your book and try other things (feele, the Arabic word for elephant under that image and so on…)

    My address is acraftyarab@gmail.com and good luck everyone! I’m starting a blog soon for Arab crafts…and checking out different websites right now.

  30. Great giveaway! I really like the green onesie. We’re planning a visit to meet my new niece and your projects look like they would make perfect gifts.

  31. Ohh pick me! I think i want to try my hand at doing some embroidery on one.

  40. I’ve been wanting to get this book for a while. My best friend is expecting a little girl. And I really want to make some unique gifts. 🙂

  41. I haven’t worked on a onesie yet. But it looks like a fun and quick project. We have lots of new babies coming in our family. This is a great idea.

  42. I’m expecting a little girl this fall. I would love to try some of these projects for her! 🙂

  43. What fun projects! I have a baby girl. And I would love to try my hand at some of these. There are so many good ideas! 🙂

  44. I LOVE these projects! I’ve never done anything like this before. We have so many babies due this year in our family. I would love to make some personalized onesies for all these babies!

  45. I’ve done projects with onesies before. But never this cute! Now I want to try a few new ones. 🙂

  46. These are really cute! I painted 2 onesies for a friend. She had twins in March. But I just used some puffy paint.

  47. I had twins this Spring. A boy and a girl. I never thought about projects like this. I would love to try a few. And I think our older daughter would enjoy making some things for her brother and sister. 🙂

  48. Before our son was born, my daughter and I painted some onesies for him. Nothing too fancy. Just hand prints. But now I’m inspired to make some fun ones.

  49. I was due on June 9th. But we’re still waiting for our little girl to come. I would just love to make a few of these for her. Why didn’t I come across your book sooner?

  50. I have never tried anything like this before. But I’m expecting my 2nd baby late this Fall. I would just love to make a few of these with my older daughter. I know she would enjoy it so much! 🙂
