From Booklist

Bored with baby Onesies but on a budget? Enter former costume designer, now crafter-author (Creative Juice: 45 Re-Crafting Projects, 2007; Bow Wow WOW! Fetching Costumes for Your Fabulous Dog, 2009) Filian, who uses four or so legit crafts (and stretches the definition of other do-it-yourself materials) to turn bare bottoms into bling. Few skills are needed; she advocates the purchase and use of such ordinary stuff as dye, ribbons, fabric paint, and iron-ons to decorate snapsuits for infants, from newborns to three-year-old toddlers. Each of her 10 how-to chapters starts with two to three pages of simple instructions: materials needed, what to do (and not), common questions and answers. Answers are also practical; for example, a thorough prewash of baby suits before crafting is advised. And she counsels mom-crafters to avoid the rhinestone-setting gun (too rough on baby’s skin) in favor of plain old glue. The more than 100 designs are streamlined and bold, with easy-to-follow directions; choose among a Haight-Ashbury tie-died style, Jackson Pollock look-alike, or a ready-for-the-Fourth firecracker suit. --Barbara Jacobs

s almost everyone on the planet knows babies go through a LOT of these one piece things called "onesies" when they are new, sweet smelling (most of the time)round armfuls of pure joy. Lets face it too these onesies are really boring and generic unless you shell out big bucks to buy the haute varieties at places that might remind me of Rodeo Drive for infants - you get the idea!

Cathie Filian begins this book with a wonderful dose of the basics - what sizes equate to how many pounds of the most perfect baby alive - things like that. She has an excellent section on dyeing; prepping he fabric to take the dye, mixing the dye (she uses simple cold water packets), how to make more than just one color of dye using only one color packet, and how to care for the garment after it is dyed and before it is worn. Well thought out and well written - this is an excellent section - even for those who may have some experience using dyes.

What follows are 101 ways to change the dull white look of onesies. There are so many ways that these utilitarian, necessary baby wear can be altered in small, inexpensive ways. Each section in this book offers a very well done set of basics on the particular technique. Who could have thought that there were so many ways to to makes these garments fun?!

Some of the listed ways to alter onesies to suit included in the book are: Dyeing, Painting, Embroidery, Applique, Ribbons and Trims, Iron-Ons, Patches, Cutting, Ripping, Tearing, adding Bling, special holiday motifs and a special section for bathing. There is even a section on how to throw a "snappy Baby Shower". Each section includes approximately 10 ideas for making a special onesie for the cutest little you know.
