I am short on time, very short! Before I board the plane in the morning, I wanted to share this cute brother/sister pair Mommy had cut out before she left. I had a hecka time deciding on what to embroider on the bodice fronts. I finally settled on this friendly little crab design.
I used Creations by Michie's Baby Playsuit. I have used this pattern both here and here. I have never seen it on the recipient, so it will be fun to see that. Nor had I ever made the little girl version so this was a first. But oh so fast. Unless you sew the size 6 month waistband to the size 24 month skirt and vice versa. Agghh.
Bessiemary. The trim is whipstitch piping from Farmhouse Fabrics. I bought a couple of grab bags of this trim years ago from Farmhouse. I haven't come close to using it all up, and I use it a lot. It is great for when I don't have a piping to match or the time to make piping.
And the piping looks sweet with the pop of the red buttons on the back. I swear I ironed these outfits but it sure doesn't look like it. Oh well they will need ironing for sure after I get them out of the suitcase.
I am outta here tomorrow. Blue skies, warm sand and some sweet, sweet hugs await me on the other side.
