Spring is IN the air

Red Flower off centered

I’m absolute ready for SPRING!! 

Red flower center detail Can you tell??  I have had these little flowers dancing around in my head for over a week now but HAD to finish all the heart day stuff before I could initiate yet another project.

This little onesie is a birthday gift for a dear friend’s daughter.  Havanna is all about Minnie Mouse these days… thus the red and yellow inspiration for her shirt.

Oh, and btw, these guys are easy peasy to make.  Cut out a few circles (different sizes) of polyester fabric you like, pass the edges of the fabric over a flame to “seal” them (so they won’t fray), and arrange the circles to your liking.  You can either stitch them in the middle or use a fabric glue to attach the circles permanently.  For the center, I sewed a basting stitch down the middle of yellow organza ribbon and gathered it tightly.  Then, I sewed it to my flower and accented the middle with a few pearls.  I used the same ribbon technique for the leaves only I gathered loosely this time around.  I shaped each green ribbon into a “leaf,” so to speak, and attached them to the flower.

I stitched around the largest circle twice in a not-so-perfect circle shape whilst backstitching here and there to create the look I was going for.

I think I am totally missing out on the world of fun because I don't sew or really know how to thread a needle correctly. You did a GREAT job with this cute onsie!!! I LOVE IT!!! Of Course I want one!

This is just beautiful - I love the colours, how special!
Thanks for stopping by @ The Quick Unpick I am off to follow you about now!

Wow! This is soooo cute! I love it! And I think I'll have to make one for my baby!

Loving the shirts! Almost makes me wish I had a baby in a onsie still...almost! haha! Sorry to hear the sickness has made it to your house too! ugh. It is miserable!

I think those are absolutely beautiful! Nice work and thanks for the tips on making them. As I don't sew, I can ponder making them in the future someday when I maybe get a sewing machine!

so neat! I really like the tulle you included and the raw edges! It would be a fun embelishment to an adult's outfit, but I love how quirky and sweet it is as a onesie too!

What a fun shirt! The color is so vibrant, I sure feel Spring is in the air!

I love the colour combination! It turned out amazing!
