I just bought a dover book of naughty french designs. Some of them are so naughty, I can't wait to stitch some....most of my items end up being baby onesies though, so methinks there might be a conflict of interests!
Hi! I've been lurking at crafster for a long time, and have even managed to respond to a few posts, but this is my first time doing show and tell! I was a former cross stitcher-I gave up as soon as I tried embroidery! It started out as making presents for friends who just had babies, but then my onesie obsession just took over completely.
Some designs are sublime , some Dover, one is stolen from Anne Taintor (given to a friend) and some are my own. I'm working on opening a web store to sell them, in the meantime I would love some feedback!
Jenny and I were just emailing about this-I just have to send my license agreement in and I should be all set. I'm going to post some images now to show you my work...maybe we can help each other out since we're just getting started.
Sewwasibi, that is adorable! I love your interpretation and your stitching is wonderful. You've inspired me to use my sublime monkey transfers I ordered a couple weeks back.
I only started embroidering a few months ago, but by far my favorite article to embellish are baby things, especially onesies. In fact, I am working on getting a site up to sell them because my friends stopped having babies and I just can't seem to stop doing them! Is that to be a gift, or do you sell your sublime onesies?
Maybe I will start a thread with some samples of my onesies.
I just finished embroidering several baby onesies for a friend who is expecting and want to wash them before gifting...how do you reccomend washing them? Since this is my first time embroidering clothing, I'm also wondering if the methods are different for adults. (I'm not a mom, but I hear babies need special types of detergent)
It seems everyone has their own opinions, but I have heard so many conflicting things (wash normally, only hand wash, never use woolite, only use woolite, etc.) that I am paralazyed with fear to try anything!
