There’s nothing cuter than a baby in an adorable Halloween bodysuit. This post is sponsored by Cricut. This post contains affiliate links which, when purchased through, add no cost to the consumer but help support this site to bring future Cricut projects.
My “babies” are long past the baby bodysuit stage. When they were small, I would dress them in a different themed bodysuit for every holiday. I always felt that they were more comfortable than a fancy outfit or a costume. My babies had a bad habit of spitting up, and a bodysuit was easier to change out than an entire set of clothes. Luckily, even though my kids are outgrown of baby bodysuits, I have several friends who are expecting or have little bitty ones. These cute bodysuits are made especially for them.
My Cricut machine is my permanent side kick during this time of the year. Kicking off with Halloween, I personalize a plethora of projects from October to February. My Cricut Explore Air 2 puts in lots of hours of cutting iron-on vinyl and Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets. The Air 2 is the ultimate personalization tool for shirts, baby bodysuits, totes, and more!
Cricut Infusible Ink has become my go-to crafting material for bodysuits and shirts for kids. Kids can have a bad habit of picking at iron-on vinyl, and Cricut Infusible Ink transfers into the fibers of the material rather than sitting on top of the material, making it more comfortable and durable for kids. Infusible Ink is peel proof and crack proof, leaving a finished personalized project with professional results.
Supplies to Make Halloween Baby Bodysuits with Cricut:
- Cricut machine- Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker
- Cricut StandardGrip Cutting Mat
- Cricut Infusible Ink Sheets
- Cricut Infant Bodysuits
- Cricut EasyPress
- Cricut EasyPress Mat
- Weeding Tool
- Butcher paper (included in the Cricut Infusible Ink Sheet package)
- White card stock
- Lint roller
- Ruler or measuring tape
Open up Cricut Design Space. My ready-made “Cutest Pumpkin in the Patch” design is here. Click “Customize” to open the design on the working canvas.
Measure the front of the baby bodysuit to determine the size of the design. Resize the design on the canvas to fit this measurement. Send the design to the Cricut machine.
If using the Cricut Explore Air 2, make sure that the Smart Set dial is set on “Custom.”
Within Cricut Design Space, choose “Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet” as the material and make sure that the entire image is mirrored.
Place a Cricut Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet with the liner side down on the cutting mat and insert into the Cricut machine.
After going through the steps in Cricut Design Space, press the flashing button on the Cricut machine itself. Continue with the remaining colors of the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets.
Once all pieces of the design are complete, weed the unnecessary portions of the design with tweezers or a weeding tool. Carefully roll the design to allow the Transfer Sheet to crack along cut lines, making the unnecessary portions easier to remove.
Preheat the Cricut EasyPress 2 to 385°F.
Place the Cricut EasyPress Mat inside the baby bodysuit.
Place a piece of card stock inside the baby bodysuit on top of the EasyPress Mat.
Use a lint roller to remove any fibers or small pieces of debris that may be on the tote. It is important to not skip this step. If you do not have a lint roller, a piece of fresh adhesive tape (something like the blue painter’s tape) will also work.
Cover the baby bodysuit for butcher paper, making sure the paper covers the EasyPress plate.
Preheat the bodysuit by pressing the EasyPress 2 on it for 15 seconds.
Remove the EasyPress 2 and the butcher paper. Allow the bodysuit material to cool completely.
Place the design on the bodysuit. The liner should be on top. Cover the design with butcher paper.
Use the Cricut EasyPress 2 at a setting of 385°F (195°C) for 40 seconds. If using the original Cricut EasyPress, use the interactive EasyPress heat guide to determine the settings. Use light pressure on the EasyPress for pre-heating. Use light pressure on the EasyPress 2. Do not slide the EasyPress around on the stack.
When the Cricut EasyPress is completed, lift up the EasyPress without moving or sliding the stack. Allow the stack to cool completely.
Remove the butcher paper and the liner.
Those cute babies are ready for pumpkin picking and trick-or-treating!
