Personalized Onesie

My mom works with a lady who has a 4 month old grandson.
Her grandson has had a really hard start to his life and was born with
his insides - on his outside.

He has endured surgery after surgery and they were finally able to get everything in its proper place - and then he got an infection.
Poor little Guy!

Since he is hooked up to a bunch of tubes and they do a lot with his tummy -
he can only wear onesies that unbutton in the front and at the bottom -
this way they can just slip his arms in and don't have to go over his tiny head.

My mom found this sweet little white onesie for him -
but wanted something a little more on it -
so she asked me to put a "K" on it - since his name starts with a K!

A simple project - but a sweet one!

I think it turned out cute!
I used steps from this tutorial I did to make the K -
but you can find onesie applique tutorials all over the place!

This is great! I love personalizing onesies- I recently added and bunch of ruffles and flowers to some plain ones for my new nieces. This is a great idea for the boys! love it :)

I love the onesie. It looks fantastic. One day I might do something like that on a T-shirt for my little man. Just found your blog from Making the World Cuter. Some great projects for inspiration here.
