I made these samples for Brielle b/c I have a lot of onesies, but in the future I think I might make more of them for Raya....Brielle is just at a bad age for modeling. She's still really jerky and all over the place and she can't sit up nicely to properly model the designs....and she likes to make weird faces hahaha. But here's what I got:
This monogram onesie isn't one I had in my store before. It's a smaller design than the one I had previously, but I like it for babies and also I can price it cheaper for people. I can do any fabric and it looks awesome with skirts, or tutus for pictures :-)
The only thing I wish I had done differently is use solid pink fabric for inside the "B"....I hadn't thought abouut how the pattern of the pink zebra print would blend in with the black felt "B" and so it looks a little off. But still cute, and I thought my sewing came out looking great on this, considering it was the very first thing I sewed!
But she quickly grew tired of modeling this haha
This next I made a little "tuxedo" onesie. This style is very popular on Etsy, but many people make it with fabric and instead I made it with this cute ruffle ribbon. I could do many color combos etc. and they'd look great with tutus....or this would be a inexpensive onesie that people could pair with skirts (once I figure out how to make skirts that is! :-) Plus, many of the people on Etsy who make these are charging like $20 for them!!! I'm thinking more like $10-12, if I use the nice quality Carter's onesies. (I hate all the Etsy sellers who use the cheapo Gerber onesies!!)
She apparently really liked this onesie b/c she was all smiles!
Then lastly, I made a ladybug design. I've always had this design in my Etsy shop (I have a red and black version too) but I wanted to try it with my sewing machine. It was pretty easy to sew actually, but I tried making funky "squiggles" on the ladybug spots and I'm not sure I like that. I might go back to just regular black stitching on those. I also offer this ladybug personalized with a name, but I haven't tried that yet with my machine.
So what does everyone think? Do you like the zig-zag stitching (besides the stuff on the ladybug spots), or do you think I should do regular straight stitching? Any other suggestions or ideas? If I can find any time today I'm going to try making one of my boy tie onesies with the sewing machine. I think that one should be fairly easy to sew. Maybe I'll straight stitch that one...
