DIY Appliqued Baby Oneise, Wipe Case and Headband

how to cover a wipe case diy baby onesie headband

It’s blog hop time and we are excited to be showcasing our designer pal, Laura Kelly’s, new fabric that features her youthful patriotic drawings.  They kids are so sweet and the message is even sweeter.  We decided to make a trilogy of crafts that would be perfect for a new baby.  All the projects (baby onesie, wipe case and headband) were made with Laura’s awesome fabric and with goodies supplied by the blog hop partners.  The base case and headband were from the 1$ store and the onesie was from Target.
