Babies Need Bling Too!

My cuz just had a little girl and since they didn't know Hadley's gender till she was born, they don't have much "girlie" stuff.


I've been D.Y.I.N.G. to try my new Silhouette Rhinestone kit

My very first project was A BLAST!!!
I grabbed some prewashed plain white onesies and an old grey t-shirt I no longer wear. 
I cut the bottom seam off my t-shirt and then cute 1 inch strips. "Fler, why would you do that?!?!?", you ask. Well, you'll see!
I cut each side seam off. When done I had 4 strips total. 
Next, I found this super cute template in my Silhouette Studio. Perfect baby girlie BLING!!! I used my rhinestone heat transfer kit. I'm not sure how long this will last after washes, but should some fall off...easy fix anyway. 
OH HOW I LOVE HOW THIS TURNED OUT!!! The baby elephant's body color is pink and she has a clear rhinestone eye. SOOOO CUTE!!!

Remember those strips?!?!
Well, set your sewing machine straight stitch to the widest stitch and make some ruffles. The really nice thing about t-shirt material is that it doesn't really fray so you don't have to hem or anything...EASY!!!
Now that you have ruffles, I pinned them to the bum of my baby pink elephant onesie and put my straight stitch back to normal stitch length and sewed the ruffles in place. 
I wonder if our bub will be a little girl from Ethiopia??? I'm totally making her some of these. 
I couldn't stop there. I had this insanely cute birdie image I've been wanting to use so I figured Hadley needed a cute birdie onesie too!
And of course.......A RUFFLED BUM!
Oh I love it!

Off to the Fed Ex drop box so Little Miss Hadley can have some girlie clothes!
