Bird shirt...





Since Grandbaby Hazel arrived, I've had a hankerin' to make something special for her. I really enjoy embroidery so I went looking for some ideas and then added my own touches. First, I ironed some interfacing to the underside of a plain Onsie. Then I traced the pattern on with a washable pen, using a window for back-light to see through the shirt. I found this cute Bird Pattern at Hoop Love from Beetastic's Vintage Finds, also known as Sweet Bee at her blog. I loved her color combos so I copied her and then added a little running stitch to the front of the collar for a homey touch. I'm quite happy with it. I can just see "Hazel Peach" in it in a month or so. I'm working on another Onsie with a Busy as a Bee pattern, also from Beetastic's Vintage Finds.


Addendum: One more finished tonight!
