Then, after some thinking, with the first morning light, this little blue elephant with an yellow ear came to life. He also has an ink stamped tail and eye. I used the normal machine stitch set to the smallest size to attach the applique to the top but added a single count embroidery floss to trace around the elephant in a running stitch.
The strawberry was made by a suggestion of my not so Little Son. I used the newly bought fabric for it and I absolutely love it. Tiny white flowers on red make such a lovely combination.
Then I remembered about this little teddy bear that I made for a different project and thought of using it as well. It's an applique with a hand embroidery.
Who knew that something as simple as this could transform a plain onesie into something more attractive and cute. Such a quick and easy way of making a unique gift for a new baby. Larisa xox
