DIY 4th of July Baby Onesies with FREE 4th of July SVG Files!

Make your own baby 4th of July outfit with these free 4th of July SVG files and a video tutorial on making a cute DIY onesie.

I love patriotic crafts, how about you?  Every year I usually make our family 4th of July t shirts that we actually wear year round because why not show off our pride any day of the year?

This year I made a couple of adorable baby 4th of July outfit onesies using my Cricut. 

I love making DIY onesies because you only need a little bit of iron-on vinyl… a perfect way to use up all the little scrap pieces of HTV if you are a hoarder like I am!

Along with showing you how to apply iron-on vinyl to baby onesies I have two 4th of July SVG files for you to make your own.

You could also grab a God Bless America SVG File or Proud to be an American SVG file on my American shirts tutorial.

I made a quick video tutorial on how to make these DIY onesies to show you how quick and easy it really is.  Make sure to turn on the volume to hear all the instructions.  There are also printable directions at the very bottom of the post.

I used my small EasyPress 2 for this project but you can also use an iron or heat press.  If you’d like to learn more about the EasyPress family (which I love!), check out my EasyPress review.

How to Make a 4th of July Onesie 

Once you’ve downloaded and then uploaded the file into Cricut Design Space, ungroup them.  (If you need help with this part, hop on over to my tutorial on uploading files to CDS).

Size them to how big you want them to be.  Set to mirror setting on the preview page.  Tip:  Use the templates in CDS to add a baby onesie to your screen to see how it will look.

Apply iron-on vinyl to your Cricut mat with the shiny side down.   Insert the mat and select iron-on vinyl setting and click the flashing button to go.  (Again if you need additional instruction, check out my cutting and weeding HTV tutorial.)

Weed off the extra iron-on vinyl and get your EasyPress ready.  Set temperature to 315F and time to 30 seconds.

How to Apply Iron-on Vinyl to Onesie

Once the EasyPress is preheated, place the onesie on the EasyPress mat or a towel and press for 3-5 seconds.  This will get the moisture out of the cotton and help the iron-on vinyl to adhere through a ton of washings!

First off, I will usually lay all the vinyl on the onesie to see where I want things to go.  It doesn’t have to be exactly the same as how the SVG file was.

Then I like to fold the onesie in half and press the seam so I know where the middle is.

Then I fold the iron-on vinyl in half and line up the creases.

Put as many lines on as you can without overlapping the plastic backings.  I put on “Made” and “USA” and then pressed for about 5 seconds ( you don’t need to press for the whole 30 seconds yet since you will be pressing again with another layer).

Peel off the plastic backing.  Add the other words and stars where you want them.  Place a teflon or protective sheet over the entire onesie and press with light pressure for 30 seconds.

Peel off all the plastic backings.

Flip the 4th of July onesie over and press the back for 15 seconds and you’re done!  Repeat for the second DIY baby onesie if you want to do two.

I tried to download using that pink button, but it won't download. Nothing happens. My 12 granddaughter was born yesterday 6/27 and I want to make her a onesie. Thank you!

I tried to download the SVG.... It sent me to a google doc with extremely blurry pictures. These aren't SVGs and I can't use them.... Could you tell me what I am missing here? I'd really like to make this for my best friend for her shower onesie decorating station.

HI, there is a pink button that says "download SVG here". Click on that and you should be able to download it from a google. Yes, sometimes it appears a little blurry on the pop up screen but once you actually downnload them, they are crisp. There is also a few different other file types for other machines.

Love the "Made in the USA" onesie. I am making tshirts for my son and d-i-l can announce they are expecting. His is going to say "Rad Dad" and her's Bomb Mom . And they wanted to hold a oneie that says Made in the USA,m so this is perfect. Is the font you used for USA available to download and/or purchase so I can use it on their t shirts? Thank you!
