Coming Together & DIY Onesie Tutorial

With all of the hustle and bustle going on in my life currently, I’ve had a lot of trouble keeping up with blogging the more “official” thing like reviews and what I hope to later achieve status to do–giveaways. I want this blog to be about my life but also be able to help you improve your own with products and free stuff. For now, I have a little more of the personal stuff on hand to share. 🙂

I’m expecting our fourth baby, first son, next month. We’re planning our first homebirth and since it’s getting down to the wire, I’ve been feeling that strong urge to nest without the actual energy to do it! On top of that, today our offer to buy our very first home was accepted! Our goal is to move in by September first since Winter will be beginning her first year of school and we don’t want her to have to transfer partway through, having to transition in the middle of a life transition. With moving and having a brand new baby, I should have a lot of reviews to share but I’ll just have to find the time for it!

I wanted to share a few fun photos…

I had fun painting my belly earlier this week:
I made the little man a onesie that’s a pretty good contender for one of his first outfits because I’m just so in love with it:



For anyone interested in a HOW, here’s a short tutorial on this DIY onesie:
You’ll need one onesie, fabric for a tie and vest, two buttons, and Heat N Bond.
1. Preheat the iron to the wool setting without steam, as per the Heat N Bond directions.
2. Put the adhesive to the “wrong side” of the material so that the paper is facing up.
3. Iron the paper side (follow the Heat N Bond directions if needed) and allow it to cool.
4. Cut the tie shape out, do the same for the vest shape. (I folded my fabric in half BEFORE adhering it to the Heat N Bond, and cut half of the shape so it would be as even as possible, then I cut the adhesive to fit it after I’d ironed them together.)
5. Place material, adhesive side down, in desired position on top of the onesie. Iron. So easy!

And my family spent our fourth of July at a beautiful state park, I relaxed on the grass under a tree enjoying the gorgeous surroundings:
