That's really handy, ksnbrown. Thanks for posting it! I think I'll print out to keep in my sewing box.

I'm using X-ray films to cut stencils from, saw that suggestion on another forum here  Grin

That could definitely be everyday winter wear! Add some gray tights and you're good to go! Super cute.

Wow, you did an AMAZING job! I can't believe you made that with no pattern.

You're going to have the most beautiful dress at prom, that's for sure! I hope the poor uncrafty girls who bought their dresses off the rack don't cry when they see you  Wink
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Re: Embroidering onesies, backing panel? on: February 23, 2007 05:02:43 AM
I did buy some solvy tear-away, because the material is so stretchy and thin. But after I tear that away, won't the stitches be exposed at the back? I've never used stabilizer before, so I don't know what the back is going to look like. Those exposed stitches are what I'm worried about being irritating to the baby's skin.

Hmm, I wish I could be of some help here. When I started, I just ordered some Sublime Stitching patterns, slapped them on some dish towels, and got down to it  Grin I don't know what I'm doing right/wrong, because I don't know anyone IRL who embroiders that can give me instructions. I don't know the names of the stitches I use, or what the best stitch for certain projects might be, I just do what looks right and doesn't fall apart. I did a lot of practicing on scrap fabric. I'm sure you can find an Embroidering for Dummies book, I personally learn better by doing. Good luck!
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Embroidering onesies, backing panel? on: February 18, 2007 11:17:25 AM
I want to embroider some onesies, which I've never done before. I'm wondering if I should sew in a piece of soft cotton or thin flannel to cover the back of the stitches after I'm done so that they don't rub against the baby's chest and irritate his skin. I don't have kids or much experience with babies, so it's possible that I'm overestimating the sensitivity of newborn skin, but I'd hate to give a gift that causes a rash  Tongue Has this been a concern for anyone who's embroidered onesies?

I would pick buttons that match the color of the heart lining, purple or blue? Can you get away with just 2 buttons, where the vertical safety pins are in the first picture? Maybe use a little velcro on the inside to hold that bottom flap closed (where the horizontal pin is), because a button there might look strange. Actually, if you used two big buttons on the upper part, and a little matching one on the bottom, that would look cute.

I think this http://www.davidsbridal.com/bridal_gowns_detail.jsp?stid=2845&prodgroup=127style of cap sleeve would look cute, you could wear it lower, so that the straps/sleeves would go around your shoulders and upper arms, making sort of a straight line with the neckline.
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: "Sew on" velcro on: February 18, 2007 09:31:34 AM
Cool, thanks for the info, guys. I don't think that I can put another piece of velcro over what's already there, because the area it's on is very small and the current velcro takes up most of the space, but that was a good idea.  I think I'll just give them to my friend and tell her I'll make repairs as needed.

Next time I'll make sure that there's no adhesive if I'm planning to sew it, but I'm confused that the package said sew on when it clearly isn't?  Huh Weird.
