{it’s baby time} ruffled onesie with skip to my lou

Hello everyone! My name is Cindy Hopper and I blog at Skip to my Lou. I love making home made gifts and nothing is sweeter than a home made baby gift! You might enjoy browsing through my Home Made Gift Guide!

This cute little ruffled onesie is a super quick and simple baby gift that you can whip up in no time.

For this ruffled butt onesie no need to cut strips of fabric and finish edges. All you need is 1 -1/2 inch wide organza ribbon. Grab a onesie (a nicer quality one than I had on hand) and some ribbon and you are ready to go.

Position the ribbon where you want the ruffle and measure three times the width. Repeat this for each of the three (or more) rows. I had three lengths of ribbon in slightly decreasing size.

Place Fray Check on the end of each ribbon to keep it from unraveling and fraying.

With the longest straight stitch sew down the middle of each length of ribbon. Pull thread to gather.

Pin ribbon to onesie. I started at the top with the longest ribbon and worked down.

Sew gathered ribbon to the onesie by stitching down the middle of the ribbon.

Repeat for next two rows. My rows were spaced just less than an inch apart.

Imagine the possibilities— hot pink polka dot ribbon with a matching handmade ribbon flower on the front………Just make sure you choose ribbon that is washable!

I used a piece of 1/2 inch ribbon and a ribbon detail to embellish the front.

  1. How cute. I’ve done this with grosgrain ribbon but never thought to use sheer ribbon! Give it a whole different look! And the front is adorable!

  2. Oh, my gosh, this is adorable. I need to make some for the twins and headbands to match. My daughter in law will love it – thank you.

    Soul Wishes
