Little Baby Boy Outfit.......
I've had this idea in my head for a while now and finally took the time to make it. And I'm sure I'll be making some more. I first made a cute diaper cover out of a blue/white baby plaid. Then I embroidered a sweet little airplane on a piece of white cotton. I stitched that onto a piece of the blue/white baby plaid and then stitched the whole "patch" onto a purchased baby onesie.
I made this in size 3-6 months and I know I will be making more. The diaper cover uses such a small amount of fabric that I am using scraps that I have. And I keep coming up with more ideas for the embroidery. I thought of machine embroidering some tiny designs...but I really enjoy the hand work....so for now that is what I will continue with.
I am also finishing a "coming home from the hospital" outfit. All it lacks is buttons and button holes.....11 of them!!! That's why it isn't quite finished yet. Maybe tomorrow I'll get motivated and finish it. If these braxton hicks don't improve...I better complete the outfit before dinner tonight. Four more weeks if the baby cooperates.....but as I tell the kids...."it really could be any time." My other three were either two or three days late though....so I really don't expect the baby to come too early...but you never know. Back to sewing!!! Have a great day!!!
