Stormageddon Baby Onesie

This post is sponsored. All craft ideas and general geeky love is my own. 


If you are a Doctor Who fan, then you have probably seen the episode. Closing Time features Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor and James Corden (The Late Late Show with Jame Corden) as Craig. Craig has a small son Alfie, that he is caring for while his girlfriend is away for the weekend. In one of my favorite Doctor Who scenes of all time, Craig introduces The Doctor to his baby as Alfie, The Doctor listens to the baby for a moment and then announces that he speaks baby and the baby prefers to be called Stormageddon, Dark Lord of All. I love the sweet moments between James Corden, Matt Smith and the baby in this episode and I always swore when I had another little one I would make them a Stormageddon onesie. This is what I came up with and I absolutely adore it. 


You will need:
  • a onesie ( I used pink, but use whatever color you want)
  • contrasting heat transfer ( I used blue, but if you use a blue onesie consider silver or gold)
  • an iron
  • a Cricut or other way to cut the vinyl



To make this shirt, head over to the Explore site and select the great big blue, Create a New Project button.


I did a Google image shirt for the Doctor Who logo, you can find my search here. Download the image you think works best for your onesie. Upload it to Cricut Design Space by selecting the upload image button. Your image should be pretty simple so select the simple image button. Make sure only the logo and no surrounding white space is selected and then insert it into your post. Add your words to the bottom of the logo. My entire image is 6 inches tall and about four inches wide for a 6-9 month onesie.



When you hit cut, it will ask you how many you plan to make, so if can plan your mats accordingly. It will groups the different color items onto different mats because it assumes you want to cut them out with separate colors and my absolute favorite part of the Explore? A check box that you can check that says you are printing this with iron-on and it will mirror everything for you. Kind of fantastic.



 After you cut the words, weed out the negative part and then you are ready to apply it to your onesie. Make sure your onesie it prewashed before you iron on to it. It helps the design to last longer.



Place the carrier sheet, vinyl side down onto the shirt and then iron straight onto the plastic carrier sheet, making sure all of the areas of the word get high heat for 30 seconds.

Start to peel the plastic off the onesie and if any letters pull up, make sure they are covered with the plastic and iron that part again until all parts of the letters are firmly melted into the shirt.

You did a great job with that and she just looks so adorable in it. I have been interested in getting a Cricut but there are a few versions. Which do you recommend?

alexandria waning said...

Aw. Too cute. I don't know the Doctor WHo show, but I know it's popular and have seen posts from you about it. I used to make tshirts with the iron ons in high school. I didnt know my Cricut could even do this!

I'm not a crafty person, but I so want a cricut! This looked relatively easy to make. my mom has an embroidery machine, and I'd love to learn that too.
