Remember the yarn I was going to use to knit something during my cross country plane trip from Washington to New York? Well, let's just say I was a bit busy keeping my 2 year-old occupied and there wasn't a moment to spare. However, once I was at my sister's there was plenty of time to get those needles a-clickin'!
And clickety-click-click they went.
Initially I purchased the yarn to knit myself a pair of fingerless gloves, but I changed my mind...this was the perfect yarn to make booties for my lil' bun in the oven.
(You can find the pattern here)
And while I was there Ellen hosted a "Onesie Party" for friends to come and applique designs onto onesies for their own littles ones!
I appliqued a little plump plum onto this pink onesie, though I should've used a different fabric for the main part--now I think it looks like a pineapple! Oh well... :) To complete the attire I plan to knit a little hat out of the same pink yarn and adorn it with two little green leaves on the top.
Check out this cute one my younger sister made:
It's a shower of love!
To make your own appliqued onesies use Heat n' Bond to adhere your fabric cut-outs to the onesie, then hand stitch the edges...It's that simple! There's a few more ideas I'd like to share with you but it'll have to wait for another day. Until then, get busy knittin' and appliquein'!
