I'm a noob to the embroidery, so any comments and feedback/tips are much appreciated.  I realized after the fact that onesie material is not the best material for learning, but it didn't turn out too bad, so I was relieved.  I embroidered on top of the applique material and a bit outside.  I was not sure what stitch to use to do the letters, and I had a little problem with the fabric tearing a bit, so my back stitch is a bit messed up.  Back stitched around the birdie, and if you can see it, I embroidered  a little wing for him.  The plume is stem stitch.

Here is the whole onesie.  It is from the thrift store, and I dyed it.  It was supposed to turn out teal, but you never know what you're going to get fabric wise, so this one turned out sort of a light greyish teal with brighter accenting around the legs and neck.  Always an adventure! 

Once again, feedback is much appreciated. 


If I had a needle and thread, fine as I could sew, I'd sew my true love to my side, and down the creek

So cute!  You sure put a lot of work into that!  I really like how the bird in the pattern is facing the other way than the appliqued bird.  I've embroidered on onesies before, and it's definitely not an easy task!   Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
