  • Simply sleeves. It always  seems like these are the hardest to sew, but really, it's not. The shoulders make it seem complex, but in a onesie, the shoulders are loose so you don't have to worry about that weird triangle shape for the shoulders.

  • Materials are simply fleece (amount needed will vary) and sewing materials. You will also need zippers, buttons, or Velcro.
