A lil' buck baby set (mini tutorial)

 Ok yes it seems it is baby central around here. Seriously everyone I know is having a baby it seems. (seriously everyone) So I have more baby things to share, and since the constant complaint seems to be a lack of baby boy things, those people are in luck because everyone seems to be having boys. (all of these things could easily be used for girls as well)

 So for a friends little boy (soon to arrive) I went with the ever so simple onsie and reversible pants set. For the onsie I used my new love (which is seriously addicting) heat transfer vinyl. I used my silhouette to cut the deer head and I used silhouettes flocked vinyl in yellow. The cool thing is you don't need a silhouette machine to use heat transfer vinyl. You can cut it with scissors, or a scalpel as well.
 Paired with the sweet reversible pants this time with grey knit on one side and seer sucker on the other. I love the little man flair. So want a mini tutorial on how easy heat transfer vinyl is to use? Careful once you get started it's hard to stop.
Cut out your design and lay it face down on the fabric.
Cover with a cloth and press with a hot iron.
Then you are done and you have vinyl design flocked (velvet) or smooth.

The vinyl is smooth and flexible and it is nearly seamless into the shirt, a lot like using fabric paint only fabric paint can get stiff and crusty so I am really liking this alternative and since it is so easy to do I have been adding it to tees and onsies, and a million other things. I know this is really just a mini tutorial and this week has been a little light on tutorials so far, Spring Break has been busy and my kids gave up nap time... what? It's crazy I know I was hoping they would nap forever... Such is life I guess. See you back here tomorrow


  1. How well does the flocked vinyl do in the wash?

    1. I haven't washed it yet, but the instructions say you can wash and dry it. It seems to be stuck on there really well so I imagine it should hold up nicely.

  2. I was also going to ask where you get your vinyl? and do you cut it with a silhouette?

  3. Adorable! I love the deer on the onesie. It would be perfect for a friend of mine :) Thanks!

  4. I'm having my first male-child, as it turns out, so I'm frolicking about with bated breath whenever a baby boy idea comes out!
    That's a lie, I'm nearly 5 months pregnant, I don't frolic.

  5. Hi Shauna, other people have asked, where do you get the vinyl from? I've looked online with no success.
