Football Onesie

We love college football in this house. The BYU Cougars are our team (although both my hubby and I graduated from their rival, the U). Justin's family has had season tickets for as long as he can remember, and it's a tradition for all of his brothers to gather at their parents' house to watch the away games. I like having a "team." Not that I keep track of the scores and players and such very well, but I like getting our family dolled up in fan-wear on game days.

Here is Harvey a couple of years ago in his football jersey, compliments of my cousin who worked at the BYU Bookstore:

Since then we have mostly just adorned t-shirts, but I wanted my baby girl to be in something cute and festive. I searched all over creation for a cheerleader outfit, but the smallest one I could find was sized for 12 months. Bummer.

I did find a tutorial to make one, (which I had almost followed but might come in handy in the future), but then I found this adorable football onesie on Pinterest. I decided to make a version of my own.

I followed her instructions to the T: brown onesie and felt from Hobby Lobby, hand sewn using a backstitch with an embroidery hoop for ease.

Pin It

I love it. And it was a big hit at the last football gathering. Although I think it might be missing a tutu. We'll see if I get around to it by the bowl game.


  1. That is just the cutest onesie! And she's a pretty cute baby too. :) Also, I know what you mean about not bring able to find university things for babies. We had the same problem at BYU and Vanderbilt.

  2. So Cute!!! You are such a fun and creative Mom!

  3. Just a quick note to let you know that a link to this post will be placed on CraftCrave today [13 Nov 02:00am GMT]. Thanks, Maria
