Onsie Lovsie!

I got a sewing machine for my birthday and I'm rather excited about it.  I decided I wanted to be domesticated and figured this was the best way.  But when I got it I just stared....  Ummm... I only know how to thread and press the pedal and make it go, but I don't know how to make anything!

Then my aunt came and saved me from a domesticated mess.  She showed me how to follow a pattern and I made a dress!  With her coaching me the whole way, but I sewed it and am very proud of myself.

Behold!


 
 

so proud....

Then I knew I wanted to make plain white onsies not so plain.  So she taught me how to blanket stitch and showed me how to use the sticky thinger that makes them stick to the fabric and off I went.

I've finished one pack of 0-3 months and someday I'll do a pack of 3-6 months.  I want to get more creative with them, but for now we have some basic shapes and some other stuff.

Behold again!

 
 
 
 
 


I'm so proud of myself.  I also make receiving blankets and nursing covers.  I made a boppy cover yesterday.  It was... interesting?  haha.  I'll blog about those later and post pictures.  I do like sewing these onesies so much that I want to make them and sell them. Because there is such a thing as too many onsies for one baby.  Do you think anyone would buy them?

I love these, I had to sew my G one by hand bc sewing machines scare me. Babies, esp newborns to 3 months live in onesies and the ones they sell are so CHEESY, these are perfect!!
