As we were chatting about what options she had for her order, I immediately thought of somehow constructing a dog tag onesie. The idea evolved into this amazing little thing, complete with the new baby's name & year of birth. I couldn't be happier with the outcome, and so pleased to have something new for boys in my Custom from Calista portfolio!
First, I embroidered the name and year onto the camo print fabric. Then I printed out a dog tag image in a few sizes, so I could find the perfect fit to the length of the finished embroidery. I traced the shape around the name & year, cut it out & added it to the front of the onesie with some fabric glue. After that dried I carefully sewed around the edges. Then I added silver puff paint to form the appearance of a necklace - pretty easy!
What a perfect gift for a newborn - paired with a matching burp cloth and you're set!
