How to make a personalized onesie with Iron on vinyl, Cricut and EasyPress. The perfect DIY baby shower gift
It always seems like once Spring hits it is baby shower season until the end of the summer. Today I’m showing you how to make DIY personalized onesies with iron on vinyl, your Cricut and EasyPress.
These onesies make great gifts or even a fun activity during the baby shower. If you want to create a onesie station for a baby shower I break it down for you here. Looking to use fabric instead of iron on? Learn how to make fusible fabric here.
Let’s make some personalized onesies.
Here’s what you need
- Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2
- Iron on Vinyl
- Standard Grip Mat
- EasyPress 2
- Easy Press Mat
- EasyPress Tote
- Design Space File Hooked on Daddy
Open this design space file in Cricut design space. Using a ruler or tape measurer measure the size of the design you want on your onesie. Adjust the design space file to this size.
Mirror your design
Then you are ready to click make it. When you are using iron on vinyl you always want to make sure to mirror your design. There should be a toggle switch in design space to mirror your design.
Load your mat
With Iron on vinyl you want to place your vinyl on to your standard grip mat shiny side down. This shiny side should be a plastic film.
Now load your mat into your Cricut by selecting the blinking arrow. Once the mat is loaded press the blinking Cricut C on your machine.
Now you are ready to weed your design. What’s weeding? Remove all the excess vinyl just leaving the design you want to press onto your onesie.
Cricut recently launched a new product called the EasyPress tote. It’s constructed with rugged and heat-resistant material. Not only will it keep you organized, it will make you look professional and keep your EasyPress from getting any damage along your travels.

Let’s make some onesies!
As the party starts have one person manning the onesie station giving directions.
- Pre-heat the EasyPress2 to 305 degrees (If you are working with cotton)
- Pre-heat the onesie or 15 seconds
- Place the design on to your onesie
- Place EasyPress2 on the design for 30 seconds
- Flip over and press the back for 15 seconds.
- Let iron-on cool and peel off plastic film
