About a year ago I was 5 months pregnant. I did a lot of shopping online and noticed some adorable onesies with appliques on them. I was particularly drawn to one with an acorn on it. My husband works at a camp whose logo includes an acorn. It was almost a requirement for me to like them after we were married. I also like an acorn because it would be appropriate for a girl, or a boy. We didn't find out the sex of our baby.
The more I thought about it, the more I figured I could make them myself. I pondered it for a while. After a month or so, I asked my mom if she could bring over my grandma's old sewing machine.
In April, I made my first two onesies.
I'd have to like you a whole lot to make a preemie onesie with a tiny applique on it. It's pretty small.
I've since gotten better and make one for Tillie in each size. I was proud of my little creations and started posting them in a facebook album. Everyone encouraged me to start and etsy shop. I thought I'd start small and get some made for a craft fair next fall. But, what the heck. Here we go!
I have my first custom order for a lovely friend in California. I hope they turn out well. Custom orders kind of scare me, I'd rather they saw the finished project before money is handed over.
