Ruffles & Onesies
This is my first attempt at doing any embellishing on clothes. My husband has a wonderful office assistant that is having a little girl and I wanted to do something fun with the onesies for her baby shower. I got the courage to try this from this cute blog. She encourages NOT perfect ruffles and sewing so I decided to try it because I can’t sew straight to save my life!
What do think? My first time doing any thing like this let alone ruffles and I think they came out cute. I just hope they look cute on and that the ruffles are in the right places. After taking these pictures I added a little flower applique to the pink out fit and it was super easy to do. I think I will be appliqueing more because the method I used was so easy!
This really only cost me the price of the onesies which were on sale and I used fabric scraps I already had on hand. So maybe an hour of time and under $10 for both outfits I think it makes a really cute custom gift.
Now onto figure out what to do for my baby nephews on the way? I already know what but, I can’t post until after I give the gifts…what I have in mind will be really cute!
