Baby Onsie for a BOY!! (shocking, I know)

There are so many cute things for little girls and I feel like the boys get a little left behind. One of my friends, my cousin and my roommates sister(who's having twins) are all having boys! I wanted to make cute little girl things!!!

But I thought that this idea was super cute and not only that but it was also quick and easy. I used a onsie from the Dollar tree as a practice. The fabric was pretty thin so it made it hard to sew on. But I'm sure that yours will look much better ;) (and my next one).

 First get a onsie and some scrap fabric (my total cost: $1). If you have a onsie or shirt that has a stain down the front this would be a perfect project for that.
 Then fold your fabric in half and cut out half a tie shape. The fold makes sure that the tie is symmetrical. Then cut out a "trapezoid" shape for the knot at the top of the tie. Pin everything down.
 Use a zig-zag or blanket stitch to sew the tie in place. You can also use stitch witchery for this.
 I didn't use the right stitch for this, I should have practiced with my stitches first. I'm still learning the new machine.

I think it turned out pretty darn cute. Perfect for when your baby wants to be classy, yet casual ;)
