St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner, so I decided to create a fun design for my own little lucky charm. Baby Bun isn’t due til May, but I figure this onesie can be worn year round. The great thing about hand sewing the felt onto the onesie is that I can easily undo it and attach it to a bigger onesie.
I drew the shamrock and words onto the design using disappearing fabric ink, and then stitched it by hand using embroidery floss and and a needle. Then I attached the onesie onto a small embroidery hoop and hand stitched around it to securely fasten it to the front.
I decided to attach the design at a little bit of an angle, because I thought it was cute (and easier than making it straight). I’m all about whatever makes my life easier.
I love this design, and can’t wait to dress up my own little lucky charm. I’m thinking if Baby Bun is a girl I can add a cute green bow or headband, and if a boy should arrive I could accesorize with cutie plaid socks. Don’t judge me for dreaming about accessories for my baby. :) I’m not the only one, right?
I’m entering this design at the CSI Project. I would love for you to head over there and check out all the projects and vote for your favorite (hint, hint). I’m also linking to some great blog parties. Check them out on the right sidebar and come visit and join the fun.
