This is what I did at the craft show last weekend. I'd already done the ironing on of the circles, so I just spent the afternoon handstitching the caterpillars (I think they're caterpillars ... I didn't feel like putting their feet on so maybe they are worms? No, I think they are caterpillars.).
The batiks are from a quilt I'm hoping to make soon for a special family member (not immediate family ... sorry girls!). The boyish blues and tans are mostly leftovers from this quilt, and the girly oranges and pinks are Heather Bailey Freshcut with a few other favorites thrown in.
They are all 6-12 months, some are long sleeved and some are short, there are about three of each fabric/color selection. The onesies are currently available at Ditto Kiddo, and will eventually be made available online too.
The peas in a pod are a special order. I'm not sure how I feel about this one yet. I like it, but it's not quite what I was hoping it'd be. I'm making a few more of these for the store, again they are 6-12 months, and will be in stock on Friday at Ditto Kiddo.
When I started on these I was not a fan of hand sewing or hand embroidering. It's growing on me, slowly perhaps, but growing.
