I've recently entered my daughter into a local baby contest (for fun of course...I don't plan on making an appearance on Toddlers & Tiaras!) But I wanted her to have something to wear that no other baby would have. So I took a white onesie and added some fabric flowers to it. Here's how to do the flowers...it is so simple and a cheap way to dress anything up!
I made three flowers in all, and improvised with the width of the fabric. I did 2 1/2", 1 1/2" and 1". You can change the length of the strip of fabric depending on how big or small you want the flower to be. My biggest flower here was a strip of fabric about 10-12" long. Once your strip is cut, fold the fabric in half wrong sides together (like below) and sew on the raw edge side. Make sure you keep your thread nice and long on the ends when you start and finish sewing...you'll see why in a minute. Also, set your sewing machine to have a long length stitch - I did mine 6.0.
