I wish I could say that I am making EVERY Christmas gift I'm giving this year - but I'm not. Maybe one year that will be the case - but not this year. What I AM trying to do, however, is make sure that everyone gets a touch of handmade loving with their gifts. You know, 'cause I like to keep it real like that! : )
One particular little lady in my life will be receiving a couple of appliqued onesies. If you've been around for awhile, you know that I LOVE me some appliques! I really enjoy making my own appliques and customizing store-bought pieces. It's a nice way to add a personal touch.
To see my tutorial on making and sewing your own appliques - head HERE.
I cut a whole bunch of appliques for this project - I like to have extras on hand for last minute gifts...
I just LOVE these little elephants! Serious cuteness!
The outline stitching done by machine doesn't need to be perfect - a little bit of crooked-ness adds to the charm. At least that's what I tell myself! : )
This one took a lot of time since there were so many appliques to sew on, but I think it turned out super cute!
And you haven't seen the end of the appliques yet! They will be making an appearance here again soon! (amongst other things... don't worry!)
