My daughter recently had a baby boy, and I am head over heels in love with the little guy!
For her baby shower, we had a onesie station, where people could make a onesie for the baby.
With Halloween approaching, I thought it would be fun to make him a special onesie to wear on Halloween night.
I was reminded of the adult shirt “Just here for the BOOZE” and he’s nursing, which got me thinking.
So, when the phrase “Just here for the BOOOBS” popped into my mind, I had to roll with it. Not to mention, it’s hysterical.
After all, who doesn’t love a good play on words?
I am a huge fan of my Cricut Explore Air 2, and will find any excuse to use it. I got to work immediately.
First, I needed a Onesie. Luckily, baby Avery already had a solid plain white one I could use.
Next, I needed heat transfer vinyl in black. No problem there.
So, I opened up the Cricut Design Center and got to work.
Halloween Onesie Instructions
*Always wash, dry and iron clothes/fabric before you begin.
After selecting new project in the Cricut Design Center, I selected “images”.
Next, I searched “ghost”. WhenI found the one I wanted, I clicked on it.
Then I simply clicked the green ‘insert image” button in the lower righthand corner.
Now that the image is on the design canvas, I needed to make a couple of changes.
I made the background invisible and changed the color of the front image from grey to black. This was to insure that all of my design would cut from the same mat, and the eyes would also get cut out.
After choosing an easy to read font and arranging everything the way I wanted it, I did two more things.
One, I selected all of the words and the image and grouped them together.
Two, I attached them to the canvas. Without this step, you will find that your design is all mixed up on the cutting mat.
The Cricut Design Space will otherwise automatically arrange text and images for maximum cutting space.
All that was left for me to do was to click the green “make it” button and follow the prompts for cutting.
Lucky for you, I am sharing all of that work with you. Now, all you need to do is to use the link I have provided in the supplies list.
The design is about 4×4.5″, but all you need to do is click “customize” if you need to adjust the size to fit your onesie better.
Otherwise, simply click “make it”.
Your Halloween Onesie Supply List
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- Cricut 12×12 standard grip cutting mat
- Black Cricut heat transfer vinyl
- Just Here for the BOOBS design
- Plain white onesie
- Cricut weeding tool
- Bright Pad (optional)
- Easy Press (faster and easier than using an iron)
Once you finish cutting your design, you will then need to weed it. This is where the weeding tool and the Bright Pad come in handy.
Sometimes it can be hard to see the smaller areas that need to be weeded, but the Bright Pad makes them stand out.
When you’re ready to iron on your design, follow the directions for temp setting on the Easy Press. If you’re using an iron like I did, make sure it’s good and hot.
Take your time to ensure the vinyl completely adheres to the onesie.
Your baby is now ready for Halloween onesie fun!
