i finished recovering the boppy pillow last night (yay!). its not great, the front is pieced together kinda funky, and the back is chenille, but its done. now i won’t have to nurse my son on a pink toile boppy.
here’s today’s project: a bunch of onesies. if you don’t know by now, i’m a pretty picky person, especially when it comes to baby clothes. in general, i don’t favor the typical lines of clothing you can get about anywhere with animals and sports themes, etc. so i got some onesies as hand-me-downs and bought some from the gap and carters that had GAP across the front, or a bear, or the abc’s. i went thru all my scrap fabrics and used some wonder under (double sided fusible webbing – basically acts like glue for fabric) and made these little appliques. i still need to stitch them all down. they’re stuck for now, but need some reinforcement. i really wanted to try to trim them with some thick embroidery floss for fun, funky lines, but i’m realizing that’ll take a long time by hand. so i may just machine stitch them in contrasting threads. we’ll see…
and yet another star
signing off for now. my mother-in-law is visiting us with my nephew for a couple days, so my posts may be on hold for a bit – not sure if i’ll get any more projects done tomorrow.
