Applique Onesies

Always desperately seeking a creative outlet, here are samples of my most recent projects: appliqued onesies. I have some tough constrictions on creative projects I'm allowed to get involved in - mostly, it has to be started, finished, and cleaned up within a few hours or at least a day. Someday I'll have a "craft room" where projects can be spread out and left out over time. But for now I have limited space and two mobile kiddos!
So I raided my mom's 20-years-worth supply of quilting fabric scraps, bought a nice pair of pinking shears and some plain onesies and voila! The white ones are Ginger's, and my first experiments.
The other ones were baby gifts for a friend. Who knows, if you are expecting soon you might end up with one or two as well.

Now my next project is Ginger's Christmas stocking - I've put it off for 9 months and now it's time to get cracking - wish me luck!

Those look fantastic Kari, I am amazed you find the time to do anything with all that you do. So I am very impressed.

Those are super cute. I love them! Pinking shears were my favorite thing to steal out of my mom's sewing kit. I still get giddy when I use them :)

Here's a craft that Kalle and I enjoy. We made some for his niece's birthday and I think Katie should be looking forward to felt mascots for Christmas. I think I'll turn some of them into finger puppets.
