To which I laughed and said (a little sheepishly), "turn it over."
I really don't see the problem. :) In fact, when we found out we were having a girl, one of the first things I said was, "now I can put ruffles on everything!" If you love ruffles on babies, try out the ruffle butt onesie tutorial found on UCreate. To make the project even quicker, I used jersey fabric so I could leave the edges of the ruffles raw (no hemming or serging required).
Another item recently crossed off my to-do list is dying onesies. It was a lot easier than I thought (I used the stovetop method for RIT powder dye) and I now have a little stash of pink onesies (and a very pink wooden spoon). Jared thinks it would be easier to just buy them pink. True, but where is the fun in that? :)
The pink was cute, but it needed something more. That's where the petals came in. It's like J-Crew for infants:
tutorial to check out on heylucy. I used the same heart-shaped petals, but went the lazy route and just machine stitched them to the onesie, sans gathers.
Want another quick baby craft? I've posted about these before, but baby legwarmers are having a little comeback at our house. I made three pairs last night! They only take 10 minutes a pair.
Baby Hopes. My favorite place to buy socks for craft projects is the Gap, because they come in the cutest prints and colors and are a nice, thick sock. I just wait until they go on sale and stock up - these were only $1.99 each.
Babylegs are really cute with petal onesies:
As you can see, I've been having a lot of fun with the 30 minutes or less baby projects this week. But there has been something else that has been keeping me busy. It is really cute. And new and different (I hope ... I've been wrong before). Oscar LOVES it, but it's not for him. And it comes with a tutorial ... next week!
