Another Quick Gift
A quick gift for my daughter's girlfriend. A sweet little sun suit for a sweet boy born in July. This will be for next spring, it is a size 12 months. Featured on the bib front is a machine appliqued whale. Don't you love his a cute smile? The machine embroidery design is a Sew Many Designs/Junebug Designs combo pack called Whale Ahoy.
The pattern I used was Baby Playsuit by Creations By Michie'. It works up super fast. I think it took about as long to trace as it did to sew.
It is made from a cotton shirting with pima cotton for the bib. I trimmed the bib with whip stitch piping. All from my stash. So a nice gift for the "cost" of 3 buttons. I don't consider it a cost if I shopped in the closet. I know I bought it sometime, just not this time.
Someone has learned to grab onto their clothes, so her pretty gowns are up around her head all the time these days. She has even found a way to gnaw on them occasionally. I wonder what lace, starch and fabric taste like?
