Mother’s Day will be here before you know it and what better way to celebrate than with DIY matching shirts for mom and baby! It’s my first time celebrating the occasion as a mom and I wanted to have a matching outfit with my little one. This shirt design is so easy to create and perfect for you and your little or any mom and baby that you you know – or you could even style it for you and your mom! Find out how easy it is to make it.
- Baby Onesie / Youth Shirt
- Heat Transfer Vinyl (2 colors – I used black and rose gold)
- X-acto Knife or Die Cutting Machine
Step 1. Size, cut and weed your design. For my small-sized unisex shirt, I sized it at 11″ across as I wanted it fairly big. For the onesie, I used a 6-9 month size and sized it 5.25″ across. Weed the negative parts of the letters.
Step 3. Position and iron your design. Make sure that no carrier sheet gets trapped under the letters when you are ironing down the side with the two vinyl colors. For mine, I made sure to trim the excess carrier sheet on the heart so when I press the design at the same time no carrier sheet is trapped under the letters surrounding the accent heart.
That’s it – you are done with your DIY matching shirts! And if you don’t have a die cutting machine – don’t worry! Just size and cut the letters by hand and use it as a stencil! I love this stencil film to use on stenciling projects.
