Make a flower from a baby onesie or t-shirt using this great tutorial. This is an easy way to use up those onesies your baby has outgrown or stained. What's even better is these flowers can be made without sewing - quick and easy. Add one to an accessory or gift to personalize or to gift wrapping or home decor to show off your crafty skills!

Skill Level: Easy

Materials:
Onesie or T-shirt
Scissors
Glue gun
Felt
Crochet Flower
Button
Needle n Thread

Instructions
Step 1: First you will start by cutting the sleeves at the seam. I chose this onesie because it had really cute ruffles on the sleeves to add more layers to my flower but if you don't have one you can always add another layer using other fabric.

Step 2: Cut a circle out of felt using your flower as your guide and set aside.

Step 3: Now that you have cut your fabric, gather and tuck it into the center and pull it through with your other hand until it is all evenly gathered. Once you have gathered it in the center you can sew it together using a needle and thread or you can hot glue it underneath. 

Step 4: Once your glue is dry and your felt is cut- attach your flower to the felt circle using your hot glue and let dry. Once it is dry, add a crochet flower and button to the top using needle n thread or hot glue.
