Tutorial: Twin Heart Baby Onesies (and hairbow)

I feel like there is a deluge of twins being born into my life.
I have three friends having/had twins recently and my awesome younger brother
and his wife (who are BOTH twins themselves) just announced that they are having
twins this Fall!!!!!
So, when I saw a cute photo shoot of twins with adorable heart Onesies, I knew
that I needed to step outside of the box of my usual baby gift ideas, and make a set for the babies being born in a couple of months to a girl at church.

*Wonder Under or other fusible web
* 2 baby Onesies or t-shirts
* Red fabric
* Heart shape template or Lifestyle Crafts Heart Nesting Dies
* Sewing machine
* Iron

Following the package directions of your fusible web, adhere to a piece of fabric
that will fit your heart shaped template or the Evolution Die Cutting Machine.
(Remember when cutting fabric to use a cardboard shim.)
Cut TWO hearts that are backed with the fusible web.

My heart die didn't cut all the way through in a couple of places, so I just
went around and snipped with my scissors.

Remove the paper backing from the fusible web, and line up the middle of the hearts 
with the side seams of the Onesies.
I dropped the middle dip of the heart 1.5" down from the armpit joint of the Onesie.
Iron the hearts onto the Onesies following the directions for the fusible web.

You can skip this step if you'd like, but I did a zig zag stitch around the
edge of the hearts just because I thought it was cute.

This set of twins is a boy and girl combination, so I had to make a matching
bow and headband for the little girl.

I used the bow from the Knotty Gift Set to cut the bow and I paired it with my
no-ribbon loop interchangeable nylon headband and it was perfect!
