4th of July Onesie

Happy 4th of July!
I whipped up a quick patriotic onesie for Greta yesterday.  
I started with a clean white onesie, scissors, riboons, fabric, and fusible web. 

Cut the desired shape out of the fabric. 
Arrange ribbons on the wrong side of the fabric. 
Cut shape of fusible web so that it is just a little smaller than the edges of the fabric. Iron, rough side down, onto back of fabric, so that it covers the ribbon edges.  Use a hot iron on the wool setting with no steam.  Press for 3-5 seconds.  Let the fabric cool completely.  Then, carefully peel the paper backing off.
Cut the same shape and size out of the fusible web as the fabric.  Iron this to the onesie.  Again, use the wool setting with no steam for 3 – 5 seconds.  Let the fabric cool completely.  
Carefully peel off the paper backing. 
To attach the ribbon & fabric decoration to the onesie, place the fabric decoration onto the fusible web on the onesie.  Be sure the edges line up and the fabric is right side up (hey, I have done silly things like that before).  Place a damp cloth between the fabric and the iron.  Place iron over the damp cloth and iron for 10 seconds or until damp cloth is dry. Now your decoration should be attached to the onesie. 
This next step is not necessary if your fusible web steps were done correctly.  However, I wanted to add a little more flair and I am in love with the decorative stitching on my machine. I used red thread for the patriotic theme.
I stitched a star design around the edges of the fabric.  This will make sure my curious daughter does not find a way to tear the ribbons out from between the fusible web layers. 
Enjoy your 4th of July!
