Halloween is such a fun holiday! Dressing up the baby in this pumpkin applique onesie is just too cute not to share!
This weekend I worked on some last minute Halloween projects, and I’m going to share this Pumpkin Applique Onesie with you today. This applique is super festive and very easy to whip up. I plan on putting my little girl in this with a pair of leggings on the day of Halloween before it’s time to get all costumed up for the night.
To make this fun little onesie you’ll need:
A plain white onesie in the size of your choice
A pumpkin stencil (or any stencil of your choosing)
Double Stick Fusible Webbing (I used Steam-A-Seam2)
Coordinating thread if you plan to sew on applique
Shall we jump in?
First, pick some fabric! I had both of these fabrics in my scraps bin from other projects so it worked out perfectly. You really don’t need much. I used a 6-9 mo onesie. The pumpkin body measured about 6 in wide and 3 in high, and the stem was about 1 in wide and 2 in high.
Next, print the graphic you plan to use as a stencil (I downloaded this graphic from Silhouette).
Following the directions for the fusible webbing, trace the graphic onto the paper liner that stays with the webbing. (My directions said to trace the design in reverse but with this graphic, it wasn’t necessary).
Peel off the liner and stick the wrong side of your fabric to the web.
Cut out your graphic, after cutting you can remove the tracing liner.
Position your graphic onto your onesie. Once you’ve got it positioned correctly, remove the liner and allow webbing to stick to the onesie.
Iron on the applique. My directions recommend to press for 10-20 seconds on the cotton setting.
At this point, your applique should be on securely. However, you could also quickly run a stitch around your applique. I decided not to stitch mine because I only intend on my babe wearing this adorable little thing one time.
I love the pumpkin applique onesie!
These cute little onesies are so universal, you could do one for any holiday you choose. They are also great as inexpensive personalized baby gifts.
And for a little extra cute. You can make a little headband to match. Here’s my little pumpkin modeling her sweet little pumpkin applique onesie.
