A Week of Onesies!!!

Well... I said that I would TRY to exercise some restraint, but I can't!  I just have to share what I've been working on. 


There's something about tiny clothes for tiny people... I just squeal every time I finish a onesie.  I have 5 to finish before Saturday, so if I'm able to stay on track I'll reveal them throughout the week. 


I started this one by making ribbon flowers. 
First you cut a 6" piece of ribbon and do a long stitch all across one edge.  As I did more and more of these I found that the flower turns out better if I made longer stitches than shown here.  

Next I pulled the thread and scrunched up the ribbon. Can you tell I'm not a sewer?  I soooo don't know the correct sewing terms. 

Next I pinched the two loose ends together to form a precious flower. 

Then I stitched a straight line to hold it in place and cut off the excess ribbon. 

Turn it over, flatten it out, and voila!  A cute little flower!  Easy Peesie??

After making a bunch of these, I pinned them down on the onesie and tacked them on. 


Here's my super easy Onesie Dress.

I love making these flowers too! I have lots of ribbons, and embroidery floss, so I make these flowers as I monitor my daughters doing their homework. :)

OHMY - those onesies are to-die for! I'm such a sucker for any girlie flair - and these rosettes are fabulous!!

Ribbons, bows, flowers, ruffles, hearts, etc.....these are such a must-have.

LOVE THEM!
