While I’d love to be a serious crafter, I don’t have the patience to create anything too amazing. I like to sew, create notecards, and do a little needlepoint here and there, but I usually end up feeling disappointed with the final product. That doesn’t stop me from lusting after new craft supplies, though. Hence, the three new colors of DMC embroidery thread I just bought at Michaels. In my next life as a professional crafter, I will own each of the 454 colors DMC makes.

Today’s project is embellishing baby onesies for the scores of baby showers I’ll be attending in the near future. (I think 80% of the girls at my church are pregnant). I dye white Gerber onesies, attach fabric shapes to the onesies using fusible web, then reinforce it by hand stitching around the edge with DMC thread in a complimentary color. Voilà… the finished product below. (Modeled by my darling niece Dallyn.)

    Ashley! You talented little vixen. That onesie is the cutest thing (as is your niece). I wish I had some of those when Audrey was a babe. I think you should post it on the DDD. And then post your step-by-step process. Although I’m sure even with a tutorial I couldn’t produce anything so cute.
