If you don't read me over at Fabric.com's Blog, you may not know that I am expecting baby #2 in Sept so I am busy getting everything ready for our new little girl! I have been washing and folding, sewing and knitting for the new babe and made some time to share 2 of my finished onesies so far. I found a whole pile of tiny white tees that never made it onto Devon so I am working hard to revamp them for #2. First, I appliqued my favorite apple design from Jen at BeeBee Mod (no longer available) in some Heather Bailey Nicey Jane and micro dot Red. The letters were too tiny to cut out the centers of some of the letters so I embroidered the letters in green to give definition and highlight the little letters. I love it!
My second is 12 mo tee that I tried a reverse applique by cutting a 4 in circle from heat n bond and then cut a 3 in. circle out of the middle, leaving just a ring of transfer paper. I applied this to the RS of the cotton and ironed it onto the WS of the tee. Then I stitched around the circle and then cut out the knit fabric from the front. lastly, I wrote "Love" with tailors chalk in the circle and embroidered it. It is just perfect for my soon-to-be cutie and can't wait for her to wear it! I included a shot of the shirt inside out to give you a better idea.
