Baby Boy Onsie

 So I have never sewn for a baby boy. Funny right!  I guess that's what happens when you have 3 girls. 
My Cousin is having a baby boy and I was so excited to make these cute dressy onsies. I was looking for some fun boy fabric for ties and vests and then it dawned on me.  
I swear the tie isn't dirty it just caught a bad shadow.

Last year I made a quilt  from all of my Opas favorite shirts. He passed away a year and a half ago and I wanted my Oma to have something special to cuddle up to.   The quilt was What better then all of his favorite shirts. It was a big hit.  
When I was finished I couldn't bring myself to throw away the scraps from the shirts and I'm so glad that I kept them.  How fun for my cousins sweet baby boy to have a piece of his great Opa.  Not only that, but it was the perfect addition for a manly look :)  I simply traced the onsie on a piece of paper and sketched a vest. Then I cut it out to use as a pattern. Next I drew a tie and cut it out. Now you have your pattern.  Cut out your material and pin it to the onsie and sew.  I used a tight zig zag stitch all the way around so it would have a defined outline and would stay put.  On the vest, I wanted to add buttons to give it a finished look. With the other one I just sewed on ribbon to give it the look of suspenders. So fun to sew for a baby boy for a change. I hope she likes it!
