This cute heat transfer vinyl pompom bunny tail onesie is the easiest craft and the perfect gift for a mommy and baby! you have to try it, it’s super cute!

Babies make me so excited! Maybe it’s because I’m a mom myself but making things for babies and kids are so much fun and also so gratifying! I get great pleasure when I make cute things for them.

This time I’m making this cute Pompom Bunny Tail Onesie as a gift for a friend’s baby girl that was born recently. Right in time actually for Easter and what can be cuter than a pompom bunny tail, right????

Heat Transfer Vinyl Pompom Bunny Tail Onesie

Cute Heat Transfer Vinyl Pompom Bunny Tail Onesie

I used heat transfer vinyl for the bunny silhouette and also for a couple paws in the onesie’s booty. I always find so cute baby booties when using diapers so I love making something cute for that area on onesies or pants.

There have been lots of new baby girls in the family. I must confess it get easier for me to get inspired since I have a girl myself. Actually, she couldn’t be more girly in her ways!

This project is a really simple one if you have a cutting machine, and if not I think there might be places that offer vinyl cutting services!!!

So, want to learn how to make this cute Pompom Bunny Tail Onesie?

Here we go!


  • 1 onesie {or more depending on how many you plan on making}
  • Heat transfer vinyl, the color of your choice.
  • Yarn, the color of your choice
  • Thread and needle

First I made my design, which you can snag if you’d like HERE.


I apply the suggested settings and cut. In this case I didn’t mirror the image because it was the same either way.


For a better use of heat transfer I usually cut the necessary material and use my mat to send to cut but you can always use the heat transfer directly on your cutting machine as they recommend.


Then carefully, using the hook tool remove all the unwanted pieces. Including all the surrounding HTV.



I cut it in two pieces the bunny and the paws.


I decided the position of the bunny on the onesie and laid a t-shirt piece of fabric on top the design, I ironed in cotton settings Pressing down firmly for about 40-60 seconds {it might vary between irons} until I made sure the image was really stuck to the onesie. If you peel away the plastic and the vinyl is not set, continue ironing for a few more seconds.




I let it cool for a few seconds and started peeling away the plastic very carefully. I also laid the t-shirt fabric on top of the bunny again and ironed it for a few more seconds.


Then did the same process for the paws in the booty area… Not sure if I got it right but I tried the best I could, right? LOL


To wash it you can just machine wash and dry inside out {the lower the heat the better}.

There you go!


A super cute and lovely Pompom Bunny Tail Onesie for a gift of your own kid!

Now the final touch is the Pompom tail. If you don’t know how to make a pompom you can follow this tutorial.

Then using a long thin needle stitch the pompom to the onesie. I made sure I made long stitches so I would grab as many yarn threads as possible to make sure it won’t come off. Also do many stitches just to make sure.

Now you cute Pompom Bunny Tail Onesie is ready to rock!!!!

As a side note, I wanted to let you know that since this onesie was meant as a gift I don’t know for sure how it went after washing it. I think that if you hand wash it carefully it will do ok.






Isn’t it super cute???

    Camila this is sooo cute! What a great idea for a homemade baby shower gift! I love using my Cricut to make cute personalized clothing. The paw prints on the bottom are too adorable! Love it!

    1. Camila

      Thank you so much Kelly, I don’t have a cricut but I do have my Cameo and I enjoy so much cutting things and creating! So much fun! one of my favorite things is Onesies. LOVE decorating them! I’m so glad you like this project!

  2. Camila

    Oh Cami, this is way tooo damn cute and those paw prints on the pom – perfect!!! You could easily alter the animal too, but I do love that shiny transfer material that you used! Might need to make one of these for my bub’s first easter next year :)

  3. Camila

    think I would just sew a small piece of velcro on the onesie and then attach the other part to the pompom. Then it is easy to wash!

    1. Camila

      I think that’s a wonderful and perfect idea! I should have thought of that! When I make another one I’ll do just that! THANK YOU for sharing your ideas!

  4. Camila

    Love this! How did you attach the Pom Pom? Did I miss that step? Thanks!

    1. Camila

      Oh my! Jessica, you are completely right! I never explained that and I didn’t even noticed, you are the first who pointed it out. I’ll update this post ASAP. Thank you so much. It’s crazy I even had pictures of that part of the tutorial.

      I just stitched it to the onesie. I used a thin but long needle and regular white thread. I made sure I stitched big amount of pompom threads so it wouldn’t come off. Many stitches for sure.

      Again thank you for letting me know!

  5. Camila

    This is absolutely adorable! My 9 year old daughter would love it on a t-shirt!!! Pinning this!

  6. Camila

    This is so stinking cute, especially with the added pom pom! Thanks for sharing!
