More Baby

These little onesies and blankets were made for my friend at work who had her baby 10 weeks early (I also gave her the diaper clutch). She was very lucky that her little guy has been able to breathe on his own right from the start and is really strong. He is doing very well and they are actually home now (3 weeks before her due date). Her baby shower was a month ago (I know I have a terrible timeliness problem with blogging my projects). Anyway I bought some onesies and had some owl fabric scraps and cut out one owl to applique on the onesie. The bird onesie I had some scraps and used them to make the birds, and the wings. I stitched the birds' legs on the onesie before appliquing on the birds. I didn't have that much fabric that went with green onesie and had no idea what to do for that one. I found the dotted fabric and knew I wanted to make an E applique for that onesie given that the baby's name starts with an E. I love these onseies. I know it will be awhile before he can wear them, but he is growing so quickly and doing so well.

Theses blankets I made using 1 metre of each of the flanellettes. I love nice cozy, soft blankies for babies. I just sewed them up right sides together and left an opening to turn them right side out. After turning them right side out I tucked in the open end and stitched all the way around the blanket. The blankets were really popular at the shower. I love making something for someone who really truely appreciates the thought and care that goes into each item.

I wish my friend and her new little family the best. Keep growing and thriving E!
