My youngest niece, Lisa will be having a baby girl in September. I am going to visit all of my Atlanta, Georgia family in a couple of weeks so I'm starting to sew for Ella Marie. This is a project that I've been wanting to try for awhile..... a onesie dress.
It has taken me all morning to complete it but it is finished and I like it! I don't think the next ones will take me as long. Since Ella Marie is not due until September I used a long sleeve onesie.
I used this tutorial. It uses elastic which makes it easier to slip the dress over the baby's head. If anyone wants to make one skip on over to Barefootinthekitchen. I modified her directions ever so slightly only because I serged the unfinished edges. Also, I cut my onesie and I don't believe she cut hers. Next time I will make the onesie a bit longer.....I needed a little more room for the monogram and rickrack. If you have any questions just email me and I'll try to help.
I plan to make Ella a onesie to match this burp cloth. Love this little happy owl :)
I believe he is a LynniePinnie design and her things are on sale so hop over there to take advantage of the sale.
I think I will add a bow to the owl so he will become a she :)
More later for Ella Marie, my great-niece to be!
