DIY Charlie Brown Baby Costume

I found this yellow onesie at H&M before one of my close friends planted the idea of a Charlie Brown costume in my head. I used an iron-on fusible paper to attach the black  fabric chevron stripe that went across the belly. I didn’t have black shorts, so dark denim shorts went in replacement. To seal the deal I made a classic Charlie Brown curly-cue on his almost-bald head with some black eye-liner. Good thing it was a squiggly line because he was one wiggly baby boy as I was drawing it – in the words of Charlie Brown, “AAUGH!”

Draw a chevron stripe on top of the transfer iron-on paper. Cut pattern out, with fabric attached.

Lay chevron stripe on top of the onesie about 2/3 down. Cut off extra chevron fabric according to width of onesie or shirt.

Iron on chevron stripe according to package instructions. Allow to cool before putting it on baby.

I used dark denim shorts, but black is more true to the character. Then some brown shoes and a squiggly curly-cue on the head with black eye liner nd the costume was complete.
