Wow–we’re on week 9 of the 2012 College Football Tailgate Party Series already! Crazy! And, it’s a HUGE game day for us (hosting Michigan in what will likely decide who will be the division champ). We’ll need all the team spirit we can get, including from the baby of course! 🙂 We only have one little Husker outfit that’s small enough to fit him. And, last week right before gametime we realized that it was dirty. So, what’s a mom to do?! Upcycle one, of course! The whole process was ridiculously easy and after not even 10 minutes of total time, Baby Brother was rockin’ a new Huskers-style team spirit onesie! To do this, I just grabbed a white onesie we had that I wasn’t particularly attached too. It had a fairly small saying on the front that could easily be covered up. Then, I rounded up my supplies. The Husker fabric I have is perfect for this project because I can cut perfect squares of it (they make this same style for other big teams too. I got it at JoAnn’s and I feel like I’ve seen teams like Notre Dame, Michigan, and Florida in a similar print).
– Cut strips of fabric & similar sized srips of the Heat N Bond product. Follow the directions for the Heat N Bond & use your iron accordingly to adhere the Heat’nBond to the fabric. Then, cut out the exact sized squares that you need. Doing it this way makes cutting the exact shapes easier; Plus, this method results in less fraying around the edges of the fabric (as opposed to cutting out the shapes you want first and then attaching the Heat’nBond. Once all the squares are cut out, follow the directions to iron-on the bonded fabric to the onesie. And, that’s pretty much it! From the time it took to gather the supplies until I put it on him was seriously only about 10 minutes. It’s nothing fancy, but is perfect for a little simple team spirit! And, it was adorable on Baby Brother, so that’s all that matters! 😉
