Sunday Best


Isn't he a handsome young man? I decided that just because he's a little boy doesn't mean he can't have fun little outfits. I've seen these on Etsy before and thought genius! Cute, comfy, and clever! I'm not thrilled with this first try, as the zigzag stitch was a little wonky on the knit fabric, but I might try a straight stitch next time. I did fuse the Amy Butler Full Moon Dots to a thin one-sided interfacing... I think I'll try a two-sided interfacing next go. Eli got all sorts of compliments at church today, so lets count it as a success. Oh, and I made a bib with a tie on it... I'm auditioning ties for my sisters wedding in August! Eli isn't IN the wedding, but will be in plenty of photos for sure! I'm thinking a grass green onesie with a flowered yellow tie. Carla's colors are tangerine, yellow, and green so that would go. We'll see what I come up with. I still have a month and a half to work it out!

Here's that smile I just can't get enough of! swoon...

What a cute pie! He is going to make the girls go crazy with that smile for sure, haha.

Love the tie onesie, I've seen these too, someone came up with a brilliant idea. He looks good with blue dots.

Such a cute little guy! Love that smile!

Cutie! Use Steam a Seam fusible for the fabric appliques. It works the best.

Cristin said...

Thanks Andrea! I'll try that! :-)

He's so cute!
If you use interfacing on the tie fabric and inside the onsie and use a ball point needle that will work best. I have made a lot of these and that is the winning combo for me. :)

I had good luck with Wonder Under on quilting fabric added to knits.

He is so adorable! I hope you are doing well.

(PS Those were my parent's wedding colours over 40 years ago!)

To machine applique on knit fabric, pin a piece of tear-away stabilizer under the onesie. After you sew your stitches, you can literally tear away all the excess stabilizer. Once you wash the onesie, the teeny weeny bit of stabilizer that may be sewn under the stitches will get all soft and mushy. You won't even know it is there.

I am so stealing this idea if my baby's a boy ;-) and if he's a boy, his name is Eli, which considering I found your nursery post through the Spool bird softie mobile group on Flickr, and that our baby's room is already painted a really similar color to yours, I'm finding a combination of cool and what the heck?? ;-) oh, and we're cloth diapering too, so I'll definitely be blog stalking you ;-)
