Lars is two months old now, so I made him a new birthday onesie! Don't worry friends, the radmegan blog is not going to be a solid year of ONLY onesie modifications.
There will eventually be toddler t-shirt modifications too...
And maybe tips for getting spit up out of our bra.
But I digress.
This is Lars' 2-month old onesie. For the record, it's a size 6 month.
He's 26 inches long already. Gadzooks!
To make this month's onesie, I used, an existing gray onesie, fabric scraps of jersey knit (t-shirt material) from my Alabama Chanin stash, an iron, fabric scissors, fabric pens, pins, needle and thread (navy blue and white) and Rick Rack.
I ironed a rectangular swatch of navy and drew a "2" on it with the fabric markers. In red, I drew out "mo." and carefully cut the pieces out.
My plan was to do a little reverse applique a la Mrs. Chanin herself...
After I pinned the blue swatch to the front of the onesie, and was confident that the fabric glue was set enough to lift, I began stitching the patch down.
(Yes, I do think Rick Rack= cute)My mom came up for a visit on his 2-month birthday and added the the white "X"s to the the border of the "mo." for a little something extra.
My GOAL is to then put all of the onsies and tops together as a quilt, however the only quilt I've ever completed is the teeny tiny one he's laying on in the last photos. Wish me luck!
