Attempting Aloha: DIY Baby Monthly Onesies and Free Printables

DIY Baby Monthly Onesies and Free Printables

This post contains affiliate links



Aloha,

I'll keep today's post short and sweet! I made these monthly Onesies (R)  as a baby shower gift for a friend of mine and then did some more for my own little guy and thought I'd share the printable here with you.




The printables are for months 1-12, and I just used iron-on transfer paper. Here is a link to the brand I used. The printables are facing the normal direction, but remember that they need to be printed in reverse. Look through  your printer options to do that. My printer has "iron-on paper" as one of the paper settings, and it automatically flips it. Test it out on a regular sheet of paper to make sure it's printing right, so you don't waste your transfer paper. :)




The hardest part about this project is finding enough Onesies in the right sizes without breaking the bank. They usually come in packs of 4-6, and I had a hard time finding the sizes I needed. Ugh! I think I ended up paying about $22, and I had a couple left over. Different brands have different sizes, too, so I think I had a pack of 3-6 month that I used for months 4-6 and then a 3-9 month that I used for 7-9.





Aren't they cute?!



I like giving practical packaging instead of the standard gift bags. I bought this little bin at Dollar Tree and lined it with tissue paper. Then I folded each of the sides in on each Onesie and rolled them up, so the month was showing. I actually put the bigger months on the bottom and months 1-6 on the top.


Such a fun gift!  Now let's just hope the baby isn't a chunker. ;)   I have my little guy's all printed out but am waiting to iron them on one month at a time since he's big! That 2 month pic (right on his 2 month bday) he's actually in a 3-6 month size! Ha!!



I'd love to hear or see pics if you decide to make these. Please comment or share a pic on my Facebook page if you do.

Aloha,

Charlie

Thank you. I always get that last-minute nervousness when I make something crafty as a shower gift, but this one was a hit! ;)

This is so, so cute! Thanks for the printable. I had a suggestion for not breaking the bank for Onesies, and so you don't have to guess what size the baby will be :) At Michael's, I found printable fabric that has a repositionable/removable sticker backing on it. It's in the area with the iron-on transfers. That way, you can just buy 1 onesie in each size, and Mom can stick it on at whatever size the baby is that month (I reused the same onesie for 2-3 months in a row)! Hope that helps!

I found printing stickers to be easier/better so I didn't have to guess sizes a year ahead!! My 15 month old is already easily wearing a 2T, she is super long!

I thought of stickers right after writing this post. lol I'll probably do that for the rest of the months with my little guy. :)

Aloha,

So cute! Thank you.
Do we need to flip the image?

It depends on your printer. I mentioned in the post that mine has an option for iron-on transfers, so it flips it automatically. Please make sure you test before wasting a sheet of your transfer paper! :)

Aloha,
Charlie

What kind of printer do you have? I'm in the market for a good one for projects like this and have trouble deciding.

Hi, Carmen! It's a Canon MX870 printer/copier/scanner/fax. :)
