First I'll start with something I thought of and finished all in the same day--a felt doggie bone for C's favorite stuffed animal du jour--Doggie (so far we're all amazingly clever with his stuffies' names). It's not the most impressive or complicated item I've ever created, but he's been having fun with it, although he's a little confused about who's supposed to chew on bones.
Then I thought I'd take you on a little walk down memory lane of the onesies I've started for friends' babies "lately." First we have the fabrics that I was going to rough edge applique onto onesies for my friends Annie and Julia to give them while they were pregnant. If my memory serves me correctly, I couldn't find my fusible stuff to make it easier. This resulted in my procrastinating for approximately 2.5 years on these...oops.
Next we come to the second onesie I was going to give to Julia's baby. This one is hand appliqued and embroidered. What held me up this time? Hmm, apparently finishing the stem and leaves on the tiny flower on the back was just too much.
Part of me also wondered later why one would choose brown for a flower appliqued to the tushy of a onesie. I mean, really? That being said, I'll probably finish it eventually and either give it away or keep it if we have a girl this time.
Lastly, a project that I actually finished!! I used fabric markers, letter stencils and a heart stencil that I made. Overall it took less than an hour and turned out pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself. I might add that even though the heart looks sort of messy in this photo, in person it's really pretty how the colors all bled together.
Have you embellished onesies? What materials and methods did you use? I'll eventually put together some links to great tutorials I've come across. Finn's mama asked me to make one for his wee cousin, so hopefully I can start and finish that project before the little guy goes to kindergarten! Wish me luck!
