This was little, Ross one year ago at Halloween . . . our little hippy baby. I loved this costume. If it were up to me, I'd put her in it every year for the rest of her life. :) It was cheap and easy to make, and even better, comfortable for her. It doesn't get much better than that.
Here's what I did . . .
First, I created a pattern out of card stock/poster paper to use for the vest portion.
Next, I ironed pieces of my fabric to iron-on adhesive paper. (You can find this at any craft store. It's sold in rolls and is great for appliques. If you're confused with how it works, just ask somebody at the store. Don't be ashamed. I had to.) I ironed the paper on before I cut my pattern, because it makes the fabric stiff and easy to cut.
Then, trace and cut your pattern.
Peel off the adhesive backing from your iron-on paper and iron it on your onesie.
(I sewed around the edges of the vest just to make it look a bit more "finished.")
I did the same thing with the peace sign.
Sew some rick rack around the neck to act as the "necklace" . . .
. . . then, again peel off the adhesive backing from the back of the peace sign and iron it over the rick rack.
Add a homemade headband and a pair of holey jeans from the Goodwill . . .
then, sit back and smile.
