Do you have a new baby? I’m sure you are way too tired to even think about a Halloween costume. Well, fear not. Here is a simple Halloween tutorial using a onesie and a small piece of fabric.. I promise this costume will take less than an hour to make!!
- Baby onesie – I bought a 4 pack for $9.99. Keep extras around the house for future projects
- Felt – in baby pink or blue
- Fusible Web – check out Pellon EZ Steam
- Sewing machine and related supplies
- Superhero logo to trace
Halloween is less than 2 weeks away. With just a few supplies and a sewing machine, you can create this cute Superman costume in no time. Pair the onesie with pink or blue leggings from American Apparel and you are good to go.
Alright, let’s go:
Trace your image onto the fusible web. Trace on the smooth side. Remember to FLIP your image and then trace.
Once your image is traced, place it onto the felt fabric. Iron down. Cut out.
Peel off the backing.
Figure out placement and lay onto your onesie. Use an iron and press down in place.
Place into your sewing machine and stitch down. Make sure to not stretch the onesie too much – especially the neckline. If you don’t have a sewing machine or applique scares you.. Handstitch around the edges. Refer to the original image for where to sew.
Pull all the threads to the inside of the onesie. Trim the threads
Ta-Da.. that’s it. Trick or Treat.
Until next time.. Happy Sewing!
So simple and easy. Thanks! I’m going to make this..This would also make a great baby shower present

You are so right! It would make an awesome baby shower gift
oh the cuteness!!! And I love that you took the time to pull the threads to one side– I’m terrible about that.
How cute!! It looks kind of retro too. Very cool 🙂
This is perfect! Just what I was looking for this year for Halloween!
