Embroidered Onesies

Embroidered onesies completed! Here is the set for Baby Girl Twin:


And a detail:


And here are the two for Baby Boy Twin:


At last! Cute boy motifs!



I know I could have gone out and bought a special iron-on stabilizer but I was possessed of that pioneer spirit and wanted to complete the project with things I had on hand. So I was well-satisfied with my freezer paper backing, which I was able to pick right off the back, and to finish things I cut out a square of very soft, high-quality fusible interfacing which I pressed on the back of the design, so there would be no tickly threads to bother the babies. I like these!

Two very blessed babies will wear these special onsies! You did such a lovely job!

We have a baby shower to attend this weekend and I've pulled out some flannel to make soft little things for our gift! I hope they'll turn out as nicely as your gifts!

These turned out darling, Anna, and I love your pioneer spirit! :o) *sigh* and twins -- now that is lovely. I'm sure your adorable onesies (quick on/quick off) will be much appreciated!

They are two cute and I love the idea of putting the stabilizer over the threads! You are very resourceful.

The onsies look great. It gives me ideas for my girls t-shirts.

So sweet! I'm about to do a similar project with a white jacket and pants set. I found a vintage pattern for lambs while thrifting one day that will be just perfect. Thanks for sharing pictures of yours - I'm feeling inspired to get started.

So cute! I've been working on my embroidery project using the picture of your tulips...I'm probably half way done. I'll post about it on my blog when I'm all finished.
God has gifted you with so much creativity!
