I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was solidly OK, but I still feel like I could use about 20 more hours of sleep. Which is pretty much a constant feeling for me these days.
Anyhow. I’m sharing some embellished onesies with you today. I made these, oh, back in August. Nothing like staying on top of things, amirite?
But hey, you’re still getting to see them, right? That counts for something, I’m sure.
Since last month was devoted to Filipino Food, I thought I should post something not related to food in any way. 🙂
I made this way back in February, actually, but haven’t had a chance to post it yet. Until now.
I made this for Little Man’s friend, Olive. It was her birthday. Yay, birthdays!
Last week was a really busy week. Good, but busy. One of the things that went on last week was a baby shower. Yay, babies!
So, of course, I had to make something. The parents have decided to wait until the baby is born to find out its gender, so I had to keep the onesie neutral.
Their registry looked like they were going for a jungle theme for the nursery, so we put a gift together to match. One thing we got for them was a crib sheet that had a green elephant with a blue ear, and it was the perfect addition to the otherwise lion & giraffe-heavy gift.
It’s funny, because I was already planning to make an elephant shirt for the other big event last week, so I ended up making 2 elephants, but they’re very different. More on that one later.
Ok, so since I got a little bit of interest from reader
s to see more in-depth how I did Little Man’s Busy Book I decided to give you some more details, 2 pages at a time.
Here are the first two pages, the window and the squirrel.
I made stencils for almost all of these pages, the same way I do for the appliques on clothing. I also used a sewing machine for most everything, but it’s possible to do this without one. It will just take a lot more time.
Let’s start with the window, shall we?
