Make this adorable (and easy!) Baby’s First Easter onesie for any “new chicks” you know in under 20 minutes!

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a great week and that you had a fun and safe St. Patrick’s Day! I realized I had a total new mom fail when I saw all of the adorable little green outfits on babies in my IG feed. I totally forgot to make my little girl an outfit for St. Patrick’s Day! (Insert hand covering face emoji). Oh well, at least I pulled one out for Christmas and I just made this adorable “New Chick in Town” Easter onesie for her to wear this year with my Cricut® Explore Air™ 2 Special Edition, Martha Stewart Machine Bundle.
If you have your own “new chick” or know someone who does, you definitely should make this adorable and easy Easter onesie!
Baby’s First Easter Onesie
- Cricut Martha Machine
- New Chick in Town cut file
- Baby onesie
- Cricut Martha Stewart Wildflower Patterned Iron-on
- Cricut Martha Stewart Rose Pink Iron-on
- Cricut Gold Iron-on
- Weeder Tool
- Cricut EasyPress and EasyPress mat
Open the New Chick in Town cut file in Design Space. Customize the size to your needs (the size of my project fit perfectly on a 3 month onesie) and change the letter on the back of the Easter onesie to the baby’s initial that you’re making it for. The “New Chick in Town” design is one file in Design Space and the cute little chick that I monogramed is one of the many Martha Stewart images in Design Space (along with tons of adorable Martha projects that are included in the Martha machine bundle).
Before cutting, remember to mirror the turn the knob on the Cricut Martha machine to “Iron-on”.
When cutting iron-on, remember that the material is always finish side down (shiny, glitter or pattern in this photo). I used gold iron-on for the chick and 2 designs from the Wildflower patterned iron-on sampler for the egg. Can we take a moment to talk about how AMAZING the Martha patterned iron-on designs are?! I want to pattern iron-on all the things!
Weed the negative space from the designs.
Position the design on the onesie to determine the placement you want.
Follow the EasyPress setting guide for applying the iron-on to your material. Warm up with onesie on the front and back before ironing on. I always use a sheet of parchment paper to protect from any heat discoloration. Start with ironing on the text to anchor the rest of the design. After the text, continue to iron-on each element of the design, ensuring that the iron-on has fully adhered to the onesie before peeling away the liner between each step.
I love how easy (and uber quick!) it is to create personalized projects with my Cricut Martha machine… this adorable Easter onesie was done is less than 20 minutes!
Do you know a little “chick” that would look adorable sporting this Easter onesie this year?
Very Cute LydiOutLoud!! I am going to give it a go at making a few of these. I wonder though how the print will hold up in the wash..
Hi Petra! It holds up great, I’ve washed iron-on designs tons of times.
What a great Easter gift for grandchildren. So much healthier than candy.
Absolutely Eileen! 🙂 Thanks for your comment.
This such a cute idea for a little baby girl! I love how detailed you describe every step of this project.
Thank you so much Irena! 🙂
