Our first grandchild is on the way and I am sewing up a storm. We know it's a boy and he should be arriving at the end of August. I have blocked off my calendar and plan on staying close to home during August and September. I don't want to miss a thing.
A few weeks ago, I had a fabric dyeing workshop at my house. You can read about it in this post. I had a bunch of dye left over. The MX fiber reactive dye is stable in solution for a couple of months, but it does start to loose potency over time. I thought it would be fun to dye some onesies.
There was a package of 5 at Target that was a mixture of long and short sleeve.
I did leave one white.I'm going to try my hand at sewing some sleep sacks using them.
But I thought it would be fun to use one as a onesie with a bicycle applique.
I cut it out of the cutest fabric called Cruizin' by Barbara Jones from Henry Glass.
I fused it on and blanket stitched around it.
The background color of the bicycle fabric should be turquoise. This isn't the greatest photo.
I also used the bicycle fabric to make a boppy cover. If you don't know what a boppy is, I didn't know either until a couple of months ago. It is a pillow for nursing.
I want to save some surprises for the mother-to-be's shower.
In a couple of weeks, I'll share it all with some links and tutorials.
