Even babies need to be ready for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life! Get your little one ready with this Gilmore Girls Inspired Onesie
Gilmore Girls is a show that I binged watched in college. Growing up, my family didn’t have cable, which meant every time I went to my grandma’s or my aunt’s I was always watching and recording shows. This was back before DVR, so I was recording stuff to watch on a VHS tape, old school right? But it wasn’t until college that I was introduced to the world of the fast talking, coffee loving Gilmore Girls. One of my roommates had all of the seasons, so I loved being able to watch them all at once.
I’ve always hated how the show ended, with such a lack of resolution. So when I heard Netflix was bringing back the Gilmore Girls I was so excited! I look forward to one day introducing K to the Gilmore Girls, though I’m sure by the time she’s old enough she’ll feel like I felt watching TVLand as a teenager. But hey, I loved TVLand and all of the classic shows so hopefully she will too. Gilmore Girls is the perfect mother-daughter show.
When I think of Gilmore Girls one of the first quotes that comes to my mind is, “Oy with the poodles already.” I had to go and look it up to see what episode the quote first appeared. It was a Friday night dinner and Loreili was rambling on about funny sounding words and decided her new phrase would be “Oy with the poodles already.” It’s the last episode of season 2 so check it out to be reminded. I knew I wanted to use this quote for my project.
I decided to create something for K to celebrate the upcoming revival of Gilmore Girls on Netflix. Now that I have a daughter I love watching the mother-daughter relationship unfold on Gilmore Girls and hope that one day K and I will watch it together. I decided to use Heat Transfer Vinyl to make an “Oy with the poodles already” onesie.

I started out by creating my design. I purchased a poodle from the Silhouette store then did the words on my own. I decided to use pink HTV for the poodle and the gold sparkly for the words.
Once I had my design I flipped the words and image horizontally. Then I deleted the poodle and first cut out the words with the gold HTV, placing it shiny side down.
After I cut out the words I put the poodle back on the design and removed the words and cut out the poodle on pink HTV, placing it shiny side down.
Once both my designs were cut I removed the excess vinyl leaving the clear sticky side with the words or design on it. Then I weeded my designs.
I then placed them on the onesie in the positions I wanted them and ironed. I’ve never had much luck with it when I put a pillowcase between the iron and the design so I iron straight onto the clear paper. I pressed the iron down on the design for about 20 seconds at a time moving around the design twice.
Once the designs were on the onesie I carefully removed the clear backing paper and viola!
I love how this onesie turned out and it’s perfect for K to wear when Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life comes to Netflix on November 25th!!! I know that sounds like an ad or something but honestly I am just so excited for it! What about you? Are you excited?
