Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas, mother figures, and future moms! This is my first Mother’s Day, and the only craft I was able to put together in the last month was this iron-on letter onesie for my little. It’s super simple and you can gather all your supplies from your local craft store or craft closet.

Materials and tools:

  • Onesie or any clothing item of choice (I recommend washing before applying letters)
  • Iron-on letters (Pick your fave font and color)
  • Scissors
  • Iron (Remember I have a dedicated craft iron now? Ha!)
  • Ironing board or other heat-tolerant firm surface
  • Towel (A tea towel works nicely)

I made a similar top for myself many years ago to celebrate my mom. Mine said Mommy is my Homegirl. I was inspired by a Gwen Stefani bag I used to own that said Gwen is my Homegirl.

Cut out letters and arrange as you wish. Remove the protective backing; the letters should stick in place. Place a towel on top of the letters, then firmly press with the iron (I used the cotton setting) for 20-30 seconds. Allow the letters to cool, then peel off the plastic. If it looks like the letters have not yet set, stop peeling and iron them for a little longer.

I realized as I was cutting out letters that getting glitter letters was probably not a good idea for a baby, but the font was so cute! Also, the glitter seems to be sticking well so far, and he will probably spit up on it soon after our photo opportunity and we will need to change him into something else. 🙂

So easy right? I have so many more letters left, too. What should I spell out next? Happy celebrating the Mamas in your life!
