Learn how to DIY cool baby clothes – here’s how to make an awesome onesie for a baby with a tattooed dad.
Baby clothes just aren’t edgy enough.
There are plenty of clothes with cute puppies & flowers (or now unicorns and llamas), but there are very few onesies that allow a mini-me to coordinate with their tattooed, “I only wear black t-shirts” parent.
The first thing that my husband bought our first (still unborn) baby was a Metallica onesie and a plaid golf hat.
I made the first version of this shirt in 2011 when J1 was a baby. It’s been handed down through all of the J’s and is too small for J4 now. She wore it at a birthday party, and the birthday girl’s dad commented on it. He also has tattoos so I quickly offered to make his kids matching ones.
I made the original by using the freezer paper stencil method. This was years ago before personal cutting machines existed, but it’s still a great way to make personalized clothes.
The two I recently made used HTV (Heat Transfer Vinyl) that was cut on a Cricut Maker. After removing the excess material (the material around the letters), I simply ironed it onto the shirts. Super easy!
