Hi all, its Caroline! After a long hiatus (due to a hellish math class) I am back and ready to contribute to the blog. Erin did such a great job holding it down, and I must compliment her on how far she has come with her sewing- she only started a little over a year ago!
Even though I have been crafting very little over the past few months, I am always collecting bits of inspiration from websites, bloggers, and clothing catalogues. My list of “things to try” is a mile long, and who knows if I will ever get to much of it. But I did manage to piece together an applique design that was inspired by this season’s MiniBoden
Ta da! Not bad for a knock-off ay? I bought a bunch of these organic onesies at the H&M outlet store during my last visit to Los Angeles. The long sleeves were $4.95 and the short sleeves were $3.95! I can’t wait to go back and load up again! An appliqued onesie makes a unique (eh-hem) gift for a baby, like this little guy:
I made this next one a while back about an hour before the birthday party for a one-year-old pal named Kenji. See how simple?
My copy-cat seagull was not as simple or quick, but I learned a lot in the process. Next time I would consider stabilizing the jersey fabric before sewing, perhaps like this:
I don’t know. It was a labor of love, worth it for such an adorable nephew!
Now, get to work boy!
