One Little Onesie

I stitched this onesie recently. It's for my brother's wife's younger sister, who recently gave birth to her first child.

(Design by Sublime Stitching.)

Who says blue is just for boys?

Lately, I have been semi-obsessed with blue & green. I think they look nice together, especially turquoise and bright green.

This onesie worked up very quickly, which was great since I didn't have much time to stitch it. I, unfortunately, was rather ill during Spring Break, and all plans I had for stitching fell to the wayside. I managed to put the final stitches into this onesie just hours before I gave it away. That's what I love about embroidery. I can give someone a handmade, one-of-a-kind gift that doesn't take too long to complete. ♥-♥-♥

Spring term has begun, and I have more classes than I did last term. Sigh. I see very little stitching time in my immediate future. There is another baby on the way in my family, so I hope to be able to do a little something for Baby Girl...but we'll see. It just depends on how this term plays out. Wish me luck!

Ok, I've been putting off my homework long enough. Time to wrap up this post and hit the books. I'd rather throw the books out the window and pick up my needle and thread, but that won't get me a degree. ;)

Happy Stitching, everyone! I'll be stitching vicariously through you. :-)

PS I don't know if anyone noticed, but I've posted a link in the sidebar for Pinterest. (It's right below the Feeling Stitchy link, up near the top of the page.) Oh my, how I love Pinterest. Check out my pins when you have time. :)

Hey, Anna's bedroom was blue and white when she was a baby…remember? I still love/loved how cute it was in her original nursery. But the blue and white definitely lost a lot of panache when we moved out of the 100-yr-old house with character (beadboard walls! big white molding!) into totally generic newer and 1950s construction.

I still have blue stuff in her bedroom--mostly just the duvet cover and some of the decorations from her original nursery--but the room has pink accents now. Meh. And boring light tan walls. Blech. But having the energy to paint it hasn't happened yet, even after 2 years.

LOVE the onesies! So cute! I'd totally be all over something like that for my little girl! And I was a little sad a few weeks ago--I went through Anna's closet and cleaned out all her outgrown clothes…and that adorable shirt you stitched her officially got archived. =( It's in the box of clothes to save so I'm not getting rid of it, but it was definitely too small on her. Le sigh. =)

You could definitely have something to sell on Etsy with those onesies and other baby/kid stuff once you're done with school. Cute, but quick and easy = ideal way to get some extra income from it. =)

Miss you! Mwa!

Pretty pretty! I have also been working on some onesies...argh the stretchy fabric! Worth it though. I need to connect with you on Pinterest..I'm a fan too.

That's one cutie patootie onesie! Great job! Did you use any sort of backing material or just stitch?

Kristi said...

Aw, shucks, ladies! Thanks for the nice words. :)

I just stitch the oneies as they are--no stabilizer. I really hate stabilizer, unfortunately. In this particular case, it doesn't matter, though, since the Gerber Organic Onesies don't seem to need any backing material. I've always had great luck with them; they're not too stretchy. But lately I've had a hard time finding them in the stores, so I may have to change my methods and start using stabilizer. If I do start, I've got some from Sublime Stitching lying around here somewhere...

I love this pattern for onesies. I've made several for friends using the flowers but I've always added the bee. These look great.

Kristi said...

Heather--Thank you!

Jonesy--Ooooh, the bee! How cute!! I never even thought of adding the bee.
