Little Birdie

A little while back I had a hankering to embroider some onesies for my good friend (and the best web designer ever), Nancy.  Well, actually, the onesies were for her sweet little daughter.  I embroidered a little birdie on one and just did some simple accent stitching on the other.   

(Note: The following photos were taken by Nancy.  I'm sharing them here with her permission.  Thanks Nancy!  If you'd like some wonderful photographs of your own child, check out her photography site.)

Okay, now on to all the cuteness...

Isn't she sweet?

My embroidery skills were pretty dusty when I started this, but I'm so happy with how it turned out.  
Perfectly paired with those adorable pudgy little arms. 

And just in time for some summer fun!

Here's the other onesie with just some simple purple stitches across the neckline.  
Don't you just want to kiss her sweet little face?  

For those of you who may be wondering, I used this image as a pattern and then just added the little heart on freehand.  I just held the onesie up to my computer screen and traced the lines I wanted on with my Mark-B-Gone pen.  Super easy.

Happy Friday!

How do you hold a onesie up to the computer screen? What do you do with the back of the shirt? Does the image still shine through both layers? I tried holding up a pattern an using a pen, and I am not as good at this as you are. This is beautiful.

Umm... I don't remember exactly how I did it. I think the image showed through both layers. But I didn't print the image off or anything. I just held the onesie up to the image displayed on the screen.
