DIY For The Little Mister.

This summer we've been invited to two weddings. 
I love weddings and all the fun to be had at them and I especially LOVE getting all dressed up for them. 
I'm totally the type of person to pick out my outfits ahead of time especially for such fun events such as weddings. I had a pretty good idea about what I was going to be wearing but what about my little guy?!
I've seen these super cute tie onesies around, and I decided to make my own. 
some of the examples I've seen online were a little bit funny shaped or too big or too small. I experimented a little and came up with a simple pattern for a good shape. The size works well for a newborn or 0-3mo onesie. You could use it for a larger onesie, you would only need to elongate the tie.
Little-Man Onesie PATTERN.
Onesie, fabric & Heat&Bond.
You don't need much fabric at all, this is a fabric scrap project. 
I got my fabric from a stack of quilt squares.
Use the pattern to cut out the appropriate sized pieces.

Use the guide on the pattern to determine where to fold and iron under the edges.
Trace the pieces onto the Heat&Bond and cut out.
Follow the Heat&Bond direction to bond the fabric pieces to the onesie.
Finally, sew around the edge. Sew about an eighth of an inch in from the edge of the pieces.
Viola! Enjoy.
