We have a new addition coming to our family this April! Our daughter and her husband are expecting a baby girl. So of course, this momentous occasion has been an excuse a reason for more fun essential Zing projects.

Although I recently posted about a another heat transfer project, I just couldn’t resist showing you these cute baby onesies. They are really simple to create and make such darling gifts.

  • Materials:

  1. Onesies (I purchased a package of 4 at our local department store.)Photo of Gerber Brand Onesies
  2. ThermoFlex Plus (Next, I must try GlitterFlex)
  3. Red or Blue Capped Blade
  4. Household Iron
  5. Lightweight towel or pressing cloth
  6. Heat resistant ironing surface
  • Settings for KNK Zing:

  1. Speed – 10
  2. Force – 15
  3. Multicut – 1
  • Steps:

  1. Feed vinyl into your cutter with shiny side down.
  2. Make sure your design is mirrored.
  3. Cut vinyl.
  4. Weed out extra vinyl to reveal design.Photo Showing HTV Design after Weeding
  5. Lay onesie on pressing surface and gently press to remove wrinkles.
  6. Lay out design on onesie. Measure to center if necessary.

  7. Set iron on hot setting (no steam).
  8. Check your design for any stray pieces of vinyl that could ruin your work.
  9. Lay pressing cloth on design and press firmly, according to manufacturers instructions. (Make sure vinyl is pressed firmly into fabric. You should be able to see the texture of the fabric through the vinyl.)

  10. If vinyl is not adhering to fabric, repeat last step.
  11. After peeling carrier sheet, replace pressing cloth and press again.
  12. If using multiple colors, lay down the next color and repeat. (Be sure to check manufacturers instructions for layering as some cannot be layered.)Photo of 3 completed Christmas Onesies in gray and red.
