NEW RELEASE- DIY iron-on appliques- perfect for the beginning crafter!

Pin It When I first started making baby crafts 3 years ago before my daughter was born, applique onesies were one of my first adventures.  I made so many cute little appliqued onesies, tees, and bibs for her.  Since then I've learned of a way to make these without having to use a sewing machine- all you need is an iron!!  This is a perfect project for a beginning crafter because all it takes is 8 seconds with a hot dry iron and you're done!  Imagine being able to make as many onesies as you wanted during a single naptime!


But this isn't all.  These can iron on to any fabric.  You could make coordinating pillows, curtains, and blankets for baby's room in no time at all!  You could iron one onto a diaper bag or use them to cover up stains on baby's clothes.  They'd look especially cute on the back of baby's pants.  (I don't know about you, but asking my husband "Guess what?" then responding "Panda butt" with my daughter just never got old.) 

I've actually seen people use these iron on appliques straight on the walls (thank you Pinterest for opening up such a world of possibilities) and they supposedly peel off just like vinyl.  So you could use them to decorate baby's room as well.  I haven't tried this, so I'd recommend testing in a closet or something before your newly painted nursery.

So I'm excited to announce to you that today I'm making the whole process EVEN EASIER for you.  I'm releasing in my Etsy shop premade iron on onesies for $2.50 apiece!  They'll ship next day so that within a week you can have a gorgeous collection of onesies of your own or a perfect craft project for a baby shower.

Iron On Applique for DIY baby onesies or kids tees

Wouldn't these pink polka dot appliques look so cute each ironed on to a onesie and hanging from a line to decorate for a surprise baby shower?  Then mom would have 7 onesies ready to go!  The only cost to you?  $10 for the whole set, plus the onesies.  Send me an email at or convo me on Etsy and I'd be happy to even pick up the onesies for you and make a complete DIY kit for the next baby shower you're hosting.  How easy is that?! 

I've used these iron on appliques to decorate my fabric buntings as well.  These are great decorations for a child's party or for their bedrooms.  (The one I made for my daughter's second birthday is hanging in her room right now and we both love it!)
Personalized Party Banner
So can I make you one?  The shapes are only $2.50 apiece (or less if ordered in a pack).  I'd be happy to customize items for you as well.  Say you want the guitar in a pink zebra print fabric or the fish in purple and white polka dots, let me know and I will see what I can do to accommodate you.  I love custom orders! 
My shop is listed below.  Please browse around, favorite your favorites, and let other people know.  As an added incentive, you can also use the code BLOGGER10 to get 10% off your total Binge Crafter purchase!

Knit Baby Hat with a Bow

Pin It A few months ago one of my friend's found this adorable knit baby hat on Pinterest and I fell in love.
Pinned Image

It's a pattern sold on Etsy by SaraMonroeKnits, so I purchased it about a week or so ago and made my first one for the new baby.  I'm going to make a coordinating one for my other daughter as well, although I might need to get larger dpn's.  My stitches are always falling off the back!  So here is the one I made.

My bow is a little bit tinier!

Being modeled by bear.  I put it on monkey, but my husband said it made him look like a thug.

Chevron Heart Applique Baby Blanket

Pin It I've always adored the cute little cotton & minky baby blankets I've seen on craft blogs and Etsy and decided for my new little one I would make my own.  I had two great fabrics I wanted to use- a pink polka dot I'd picked up at a designer fabric boutique on discount and a grey chevron I had picked up a while back at Joann's, but hadn't used yet.  I decided on a simple heart applique for my first one.  Here is how it turned out:

I really love it, and I have the stuff to make more for my shop, but I do think I need a bit more practice first with the minky before I sell any.  I had a couple of places where it puckered a little while I was topstitching.  I'm planning on making some burp cloths, so maybe that will be just the practice I need.  I really liked making this since it was a relatively quick craft (under 1 hour) which is just perfect for a binge crafter like me.  I had this whole list of baby crafts I wanted to make before my daughter arrives in January, and I feel like I'm finally starting to get some done!
