A Year of Onesies {tutorial}

****NOTE: Why didn’t anyone tell me I’ve been spelling onesies (onsies) wrong????** :o)
At the shower last week, I gave my sister a onesie for every month of the first year. I’ve seen a lot of these around as parents take pictures each month. And this is my version! Pin It
 I realized a bit too late (after I had them all dyed yellow…) that I probably didn’t need so many. I could have just had one of each size with removable numbers. But, they look SO cute, and now my sister has lots of onesies! I went with these colors because she doesn’t know the gender.
Doesn’t the 0 look SO tiny? I love little onsies!
Here’s how I did it:
13 onsies of various sizes.
1 newborn
3: 0-3 month
3: 3-6 month
3: 6-9 month
3: 9-12
I prefer carters onsies or some of the other made by carters brands like just one you. I find that the gerber brand runs really small…
Dye your onsies to the color you want. 
(I will be sharing some front load washer dying tips next week!)
I cut out all all my numbers with coordinating felt and used a darker shade of embroidery thread. I wanted my sister to have the option to take the number off and re-use the onsie if she wanted so I did most of the stitching off the shirt.
I left the outer stitches to attach the number to the onsie.
I just eyed up the placement.
And stitched on the number with the same stitches as I had already been using.
finished product!

I love the way they turned out and my sister is so excited about them!
