Make your own cute buffalo plaid baby bear onesie with Infusible Ink and a free baby bear SVG file. Quick and easy Christmas onesie!
Are you as much a fan of buffalo check as I am?? I still love all things buffalo plaid so I’m doing a little happy dance that it’s still a thing this year!
Last year around the holidays I made buffalo check pillows, buffalo plaid stockings, and buffalo plaid ornaments. And I even painted a thrift store tray with buffalo plaid check. I guess I might have a problem…
Since Cricut launched Infusible Ink this year, I have been waiting to get my hands on the red buffalo check Infusible Ink and make something with it. I finally did and it came out so cute!
You might remember I made my hubby and mine matching Halloween costume shirts with Infusible Ink and my son’s back to school shirt with it. I love that you can’t feel it. No thick feeling to the shirt because the Ink infuses into the shirt.
This time I decided to use it on a onesie since I am already in DIY gift mode. Since I had already made my family bear SVG files last year for our matching PJs, whipping up this gift was super easy.

Designing Baby Bodysuit in CDS
The first thing you’ll need to do is design your own one baby bear SVG in Cricut Design Space or download mine. (see below). My bear SVG comes in a family pack. So when you upload it into CDS, it will look like this.
If you need additional help with CDS, make sure to check out my Cricut Design Space 101 series.
Click the UNGROUP button on the top right side and delete all of the other ones. Ungroup the Baby Bear SVG group and delete the “bear” word out if you want.
You can use the templates to add a bodysuit so you can size it to fit.
Click Make It. Select “mirror” on the Prepare Screen. To save time I moved the images to opposite sides of the mat so I could put two different colors of Infusible Ink in small rectangles on my mat. Make sure to watch the video to see how I prepared the mat!
Click continue and select Infusible Ink transfer sheet in the material drop-down menu.
Cut out the baby bear SVG images with the ink side of the transfer sheet facing up.

Making a Buffalo Plaid Baby Bear Onesie
Here comes the fun! Check out the interactive heat guide to see what temperature to set an EasyPress 2. It will also tell you exactly how to apply Infusible Ink. I always have it up on my laptop when I’m making something.
Turn on the EasyPress and preheat to 385F.
Remove the transfer sheets from the mat and roll them a little in your hands to make them “crack”. Then peel off the extra so only your image is left.
Place the Infusible Ink compatible bodysuit on an EasyPress mat and insert a piece of white cardstock to prevent bleeding onto the backside.
Lint roll the front of the onesie.
Once the EasyPress is preheated, place a piece of butcher paper over the onesie and preheat it for 15 seconds. Let it cool for a minute or so.
Center the Baby and the bear on the onesie with the liner facing up.
Place butcher paper over the entire image and press it with light pressure for 40 seconds.
Once it’s cool to the touch, remove the plastic transfer sheet and be amazed by the vibrant colors!
I love how the images are infused into the baby bear onesie and it stretches with the material.
Isn’t it cute?? I might need to make a big one for myself.
If you love Infusible Ink too, you will probably love making a custom taggie baby blanket!
One gift down! Woo Hoo!
