Description

At my daughter's baby shower last week, her BFF had the guests decorate onesies with fabric pens.  It was a cute and fun shower activity and the little garments are always practical and appreciated.  My sewing skills are better than my drawing skills, so I saved one to embellish later on at home.  My daughter wanted me to do a special one that the baby could wear home from the hospital after she is born in the next few weeks.  :smiley:

I thought about what I was going to do, and today got to it.

So here is a sweet little stylized bunny, cut from fabric used in my daughter's wedding gown.  The little pink flower is one left from a dress I made for the baby's big sister when she was a baby.  The tail is just something that was in my stash of random bits of things.

I free-hand appliqued this with my sewing machine.  This is not machine embroidery, but a satin stitch that I carefully guided along as my machine stitched.

I'm really happy with how it turned out. ♥

Thank you. It was fun making this! I used to do a ton of this kind of thing when my own kids were small. Now I have an embroidery machine that can do images so perfectly, but I still want to keep my freehand skills up and there are times I just love doing it "old school".
