Tutorial: Appliqued Onesies

This weekend I whipped up a batch of appliqued onesies. (Among other things.) This is a great quick project that makes a great gift or a cute new top for your little one. Yes I know it is July and that I made a pumpkin one...a girl has to be prepared don't ya know.

There are tutorials all over the blogosphere that can tell you what you need and how-to. I am not in a 'recreate the wheel' mood plus, I didn't come up with the concept of appliqued onesies. Genius that person. Anywho...check out homemade by jill's recent entry if you need a general how-to. I heart her blog.

Three Tips:
  • If you are like me and don't yet wash onesies on a regular basis...prewash your oneies...they shrink big time.
  • I always try and use a pressing cloth (i.e. - a bigger scrap of leftover fabric) to put between my iron and fusible webbing. You don't want that gluely junk on your nice iron.
  • I just zig-zag around the edges of my appliques...I like that look. You can do a satin stitch, but you have to think about it more.
Oh and if you want patterns of what I did let me know...I may post the pattern pieces if y'all are interested. Just kidding...here you go.

And a taste of things to come:
  • some more tutorials...in the works as we speak
  • some new quiet books and a new pattern
