reverse applique - take 2

I do think my model is especially handsome!

So I learned a thing or two making the "D" onesie.

First, straight lines are a whole lot easier than curvy ones.


So I decided to try something with only straight lines. That was after I tried a car and it turned out looking more like a weapon. Oh dear.


I was super excited when I had to go back over a line and they lined up exactly!

I think even the outline looks pretty fun.

But once the knit has been cut away, it's even cuter.

I wonder if it will still fit him by the fourth of July?

Oh Kelly, you've inspired me! Jacob has several plain t-shirts that are just dying to be jazzed up. Now I know what to do with them. Thank you for the fun tips! ...I love that it's "mamma" time friendly : )...we don't get a whole lot of extra free time.

I'm thinking no on the fourth of July. That boy is growing like a weed. Good job with the sewing.

Kelly, great job! How much fun it is to watch you discovering the fun of sewing... not that I'm an expert, but, you know! I've never tried an applique or a reverse applique, now you've inspired me to give it a go.
