12 Drummers Drumming
11 Pipers Piping
9 Ladies Dancing
5 Gold Rings
4 Calling Birds
3 French Hens
2 Turtle Doves
And a Partridge in a Pear Tree
I found the cutest little dancing lady logo over at Mikon Mark, enlarged the image on my computer and printed it out using it as a general guideline for my dancing lady pattern.
As instructed in Day 1, I then used fusible interfacing for all pattern pieces and sewed them directly onto the Onesie (being sure not to sew through the back).
On the 10th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 10 Lords-a-Leaping:
I found a great free downloadable image HERE which I thought would be simple enough to use as an outline. All of these people are tough to do (and I thought it would be the birds – lol)! I did have to change his footing in the tracing process in order to fit the circle I had created, but wish I hadn’t as it doesn’t look like he is leaping now…hopefully you won’t have to!
On the 11th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 11 PIPERS PIPING:
This one I had fun with. Finding the cutest little cartoon image HERE, I decided to put that on a onesie using the freezer paper method. After giving this some thought, how great would it be to put other black and white cartoon images on T-shirts, and give kids some fabric markers to draw in themselves?!!! (Another present idea)
And last, but certainly not least…
On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me, 12 DRUMMERS DRUMMING:
I went simpler this route, because I thought a simple drum would look so cute on a onesie. I used an image I found HERE as my inspiration.
And there you have it, the 12 Days of Christmas onesies set. Easy enough to do if you have the time, hard to do when trying to jam it in with the rest of your December holiday schedule…lol.
With a little extra no-fray, I will be all set to gift this one out to the cutest little baby around 🙂

Of course there are loads of ways you can complete this set and make it you own: fabric markers or paint, freezer paper stenciling, freezer paper printing, quilting, any way you choose it will be a gift from the heart from you to that special baby in your life. Put it on Onesies, t-shirts, bibs, recyclable tote bags, you name it! If you come up with something inspired by these posts, let me know! I would love to see it!!!
Merry Christmas everyone!
