Handmade Gifts: Freezer Paper Tie Onsie

I love a handmade gift.  I think it just shows that much more care into gifting.

A while ago I made some cute onesies for my two nephews (one on each side) that were born right around the same time.  This is a perfect little comfy outfit for church and I think would look awfully Snazzy for this Christmas Season.

So I give you: How to Make your Own Freezer Paper Tie Onesie.


And I'll admit, some of my projects can be a little complicated or time consuming.  
This was neither.  
Super easy, super fun, super fast.

Here's how to make your own.

1. Onesie
2. Printed off 'Freezer Paper Cut Out' page.
3. Freezer Paper
4. Exact-o knife
5. Red Fabric Paint (tulip brand)
6. Sponge Brush
7. Iron

STEP ONE: Print out this page.

STEP TWO: Place the printed off paper under your Freezer paper and trace on top with a pencil.
On the freezer paper you'll need to distinguish which lines you'll be cutting out.
I drew on all the while lines-- numbers, so I knew not to cut those out.

STEP THREE: Cut out the parts you're going to paint with an Exact-o Knife.

STEP FOUR: Line up your tie on the onesie and iron in place.

STEP FIVE: Paint over your stencil and let dry.
I did four different layers of paint, waiting about 1 1/2 hours or more between each layer.

STEP SIX: After being completely dried (I left mine over night), peel off your Tie Stencil.
Place a towel over your project and iron for 30 seconds to seal everything together.

All done!

I did two of these, for both baby boys...
picked out some cozy pants...

wrapped 'em up and off they went. 

And Oh-- My, what a handsome boy he is rocking his Comfy, Cozy, Big boy Tie.

His Mama tells me he gets lot of compliments each Sunday.
