Onesie Cupackes TutorialMy friend had a baby shower for her Sister-in-law last weekend and so of course I scoured the internet for a great shower gift and came across many, many versions (and videos) of these cute cupcakes made of blankets & onesies! 

I combined a couple of the features and added my own twist to these beauties by adding a headband in the center and wow were they a hit! They came out soo cute! Here’s how I made them~

Onesie Cupcakes


Fold Baby Blanket for cupcake onesieFold the blanket in half, then fold with open ends toward the center in 2 1/12 in folds.

Fold Onesie for cupcake

 Fold your onesie in half sleeves in.


Add headband to onesie

Place the headband long ways on the bottom snap end of the onesie and roll tightly, {like you are rolling dough for a croissant}. Pin with two straight pins to keep it tight and secure.

Roll onsie and blanket

Then begin to roll, really tight as you go, wrapping one end of the blanket around the onesie all the way to the other.

Place the roll inside the bowl, tucking the end of the blanket down inside the bowl. Place them in a cake box and that’s it~ instant cuteness!!!

Now if you want to get really crafty, you could make a wrapper for that bowl. Another idea is placing the the rolled blankets in large cupcake liners, coffee filters or just tied with a bow instead of the bowl version. There are endless versions out there to try.
