DIY {Ruffle Butt Onesies & Pillow}

Last week One Pretty Thing featured my craft organizers. On the same day these Ruffle Bottom Onesies were featured. I had bought a couple packs of plain white onesies previously…which a couple of my friends gave me a hard time about (verses me buying girly onesies). At the time I figured I’d iron-on something to them like I had done for the boys. Well – look at my personal growth as I approach having a daughter! My mom and I sewed ruffles on the butts bottoms. I have to admit they are so cute it is a good thing I don’t have a serger at my house or I would probably be covering her room in ruffles. You can find directions for them HERE. We used the same technique to make a pillow for her room.

The pillow…the orange fabric will be curtains for her room too.

The onesies…one is out of Amy Butler fabric, the other is Heather Bailey fabric that I bleached for another project (to be posted later).

And on another note I finally got to do a little thrift store shopping. It doesn’t happen often since my boys DESPISE shopping. Here are my finds from the day: wooden movie seats from the 50s, a magazine rack (to be madeover), an enamel pan, a record box (also to be madeover – not so much a fan of the color or butterfly). I’ll post “after” pictures later. So technically speaking Chris and I can now say we have theatre seating in home 🙂

  • Carissa - LOVE those onesies! Wish I would have had those when Emmy was a baby. They would be super cute if you embroidered her initial on the front too. If you need a name of someone who embroiders….I have a lady who does it for super cheap and does and amazing job! 🙂

  • rachel denbow - Love those theater seats! WOW! I think we’d have a lot of fun thrifting together. And I think you look beautiful in your ninth month. Someone told me during month six that it looked like any day now. I already feel huge at 19 weeks so I can appreciate your hesitation to take pregnancy pictures. But, really, you look fabulous!

  • jennicrack - I love the onesies! And I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the record box! I purchased one that I think belonged to my mom when I was a kid at the Salvation Army years after she donated hers. I makes me smile as I remember her puling out all sorts of important docs out of it as a kid!
