I hoped and prayed when I made my godson’s Baby’s First Christmas outfit last year that I would be able to make one for us this year and I did! If you’re new around here, we’re expecting our miracle baby just before Christmas. The best gift ever, indeed! Although she isn’t here yet, she’ll be outfitted and ready to go come Christmas!
These Baby’s First Christmas Pajamas are perfect for your new little one or would make such a heartfelt, special gift for any new parents you may know! Here’s how easy it is to make with your Cricut Maker, some iron-on and festive holiday fabric for the adorable knee patches. I know our little peanut won’t be crawling yet but I just couldn’t resist for the cute factor. 😉
DIY Baby’s First Christmas Pajamas
- Cricut Maker
- Fabric Grip cut mat
- Best Gift Ever cut file
- EasyPress 2 6″ x 7″
- EasyPress 8″ x 10″ Mat
- Glitter Iron-on in White and Gold Dusk
- Everyday Iron-on in Green
- Weeder tool
- Heat n Bond
- Holiday fabric of your choice
- Baby sleeper
Open the Best Gift Ever cut file in Cricut Design Space and adjust size if necessary to fit the size of the sleeper you will be using. Cut the text and bow images (remember to mirror any type before cutting!) out of iron-on. I used green, gold glitter and white glitter iron-on.
Cut a piece of fabric a little larger than the size you will need for the knee patches (you can see the dimensions on the mat preview in Design Space). Apply a piece of Heat n Bond (liner side up) onto the back of the fabric with an EasyPress or iron. Press for about 15 – 20 seconds. I leave the lining on the fabric for the cut, that way the crisp cut remains when you pull it off of the mat and the fabric doesn’t fray.
I love how easy it is to select your cutting material on the Cricut Maker! When it’s time to cut the fabric for the knee patches, select medium fabric, bonded and switch out your Cricut Maker blade to the bonded fabric blade.
Cut the fabric on the strong grip mat.
Position the design where you want it onto Baby’s First Christmas pajamas.
Follow the EasyPress settings for applying the iron-on and the fabric knee patches.
I cannot WAIT to dress up our little girl in her very first Christmas outfit!
