Your little one will love wearing this Funky Baby Onesie from Becky Meverden.  Made using simple tie dye techniques, this cute baby outfit is great for little girls and boys alike (depending on your dye color choices).  These make great gifts for a shower or birthday.  You could even make them at your baby shower with your friends and family so your little one always has a cute and funky outfit to wear!

Funky Baby Onesie


  • Tulip Tie-Dye Kit
  • Button
  • Flower cookie cutter or flower shape of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Thread
  • 2 onesies



  1. The instructions enclosed in the kit are excellent and I had no trouble following them.  For the main onesie, I went with the swirl method and this is what the onesie looked like after I put the rubber bands on.  Remember to prewash your item before you tie-dye to get the best results.
  2. Lay down some plastic to protect the surface you are working on.  The tie-dye kit has premeasured dye in bottles and all you need to do is add water.  I chose to use the pink, orange and yellow.  Next I squirted sections across from each other in the same color.  Turn over and repeat. I let it set for 7 to 8 hours to allow the colors to set.

  3. This is what it looked like after I removed the rubber bands.

  4. For the second onesie which will be used to make the flower, I used the crumble method.
  5. I squirted dye all over.  I used only one color.

  6. When die is set, put both onesies in the wash and run through a cycle.  I did it with some dark colored towels.  Don't add light colored laundry to the load.  It might stain.  Afterwards, I cut the side seams of the crumple onesie.

  7. I pressed the flower cookie cutter into the fabric and it left a nice indentation.  Cut out.  You can also find a flower shape, trace it onto the onesie and cut out.

  8. Center the flower on the onesie, place the button on the center of the flower and stitch in place.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share! is a great place to find wholesale baby clothing.

Very cute, but don't waste a whole onsie for one little flower, go and find an old t-shirt or go get something from a resale/consignment store and use that for the flower.
