So, friends just had their first child. I put together a set of 12 onesies (3 each in four different sizes to take him through the first year) that they were kind enough to photograph and put online.

Four of them are Sublime Stitching patterns (the luchador, monkey, robot and scooter), but most of the rest are ones I adapted myself. I'm particularly proud of the "Beemer" one, which is a recreation of a book cover. Previous to the real human one, it was the father's previous baby -- his first novel.

Those are great, especially the Kool-Aid man!   =D   I love that thing (hate Kool-Aid, but that's okay).  My husband thinks I'm crazy...when that one popped up on the slideshow, I said "Ahh!!! Kool-Aid Man!" out loud lol.      I never thought about doing them in a bunch of sizes...although it makes perfect sense.   

I love discovering different awesome things to embroider.  Theres just too many possibilities!

Very very awsome.  The Koolaid man is almost enough to make me want to reproduce.

Brian is also awsome, too.

Thanks. For these I used iron-on stablizer that I put on with low heat so that the edges would easily pull up for snipping. This works great for onesies, because they are usually thick enough that any leftover stablizer isn't going to show through.

 Lately though, I've been experimenting with the easy tear variety for my own stuff, since grown-up tees tend to me a thinner cotton.

I know a lot of people don't like to stitch on knits, but I haven't had a problem -- probably because that's what I started with so I don't know what I'm missing.
