The 10 Minute Tuxedo Onesie

As I explained yesterday, I needed something for my baby to wear for his uncle's wedding that would be comfortable and functional, so I set to work on what I like to call the 10 minute tuxedo onsie!

Here's a step by step tutorial on how to make two tuxedos. It's a twofer!!

Start with a plain what Onesie. It cost me $2 at Walmart.

Next I made a shield shaped template out of cardboard.

Puffy Paint- if you couldn't read the label.

Trace the Shield with the puffy paint.

It only takes a few minutes to dry.

If you want to get this baby finished in 10 minutes, be impatient and DON'T wait for this to dry. Create the next line beside the shield shape.

Repeat one the other side.

Time to make a bow tie. Fold the ribbon in a figure eight.
Pinch the Bow like a baby's butt cheek.

Pinch the Bow and stitch the back side to make that pinch permanent.

For the middle piece, fold the ribbon in half.

Loop the center ribbon around the middle of the bow tie and stitch.

Trim the end of the ribbon and Stitch to the top of the onsie.

Now if you want to party in a less formal, but still classy way, go for the tie look.

Here's how you do it!!!

Start with a long piece of ribbon. Eye-ball the length to fit the onsie and make the finished edge a point.

Melt the edges to keep it from fraying.

(Melted Edges)

Slightly cut the ribbon to taper in at the top.

Melt the edges here too, to keep from fraying.

(Melted Edges)

Now for the top of the tie. Fold a length of ribbon in half.

Begin to create the triangle shape of the tie.

When you've created the tie top, stitch in place.

Tuck the left overs into the top of the tie and stitch.

Tuck the top of the tie into the knot and stitch.

(Stitch together)

Stitch the tie to the onsie.

Cut a double triangle and stitch over the top of the tie.

Party Time!

  20. First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
