Have you seen Cricut's new Iron On Designs? You do not even need a Cricut machine to use these; just an iron or EasyPress! They have dozens of adorable designs perfect for baby onesies, like the narwhal/seahorse pack that I am using. They are a great DIY baby shower gift that only takes about 5 minutes to make!

Lets get started! All you need is a onesie or body suit, ready made Cricut Iron-on Designs, and an iron or EasyPress. I got a 3-pack of Gerber onesies in white from Walmart. You could use one with a color or pattern, but I chose to go with white, so the iron-on design would really stand out. I found my iron-on pack at Michaels, but you can find dozens of them them online at Cricut.com as well.

Adhering Iron-On Designs using an EasyPress


Preheat the EasyPress according to the material. The iron on package comes with a handy cheat sheet, so I set mine to 340 degrees. While it's pre-heating, cut apart the designs using scissors.

Lay the onesie on the Heat Press Mat and preheat the area of the material for about 10-15 seconds. Lay the design onto the material then heat the design for 50 seconds, applying medium pressure.

A couple of care notes: Wait 24 hours after application before washing, wash inside out and dry on low/medium heat, do not bleach, iron garment inside out if needed.

If you want, you can always personalize it using iron on vinyl to add a name or quote. This was the easiest project I think I have ever done! With several of my friends having babies this year, I will be making more of these for gifts. There are so many designs to choose from and they are affordable at less than $5 a piece. Head to Cricut.com and let me know your favorites and tell me what you would use them on.
