Owl Onesie

Yep I've been making baby things again. It just never gets old!  
This time I created an applique! I usually just do an initial or shape but wanted to make an owl. 
So I googled 'free owl applique pattern' and found this...

I had to enlarge a couple of times to get the size I needed.  I didn't take photos of how I did this but it's so very easy!  All you need really is scraps. I cut everything out then starting with the eyes I sewed the inner eye to the outer eye. Next I sewed the eyes to the face and beak. Then sewed that piece and the wings to the body. Now it's one piece! To keep things simple I leave all edges raw. I use Pellon Wonder-Under to apply shapes/initials to any size onesie. 

The result is cute custom creations!
I have more to make too! I'm getting a new nephew in about 2 1/2 months!

Happy Thursday!!

These are so cute! It sounds like your nephew will be here close to when mine is due. I've been up to my eyeballs in cute baby things. I'm loving it! I wasn't in to things like this (nor did I have my sewing machine) when my boys were teeny tiny.
