Girly Appliqued Onesies

Along with the Strawberry Knit Hat that I showed you a couple of days ago, I also made a couple of appliqued onesies for my friend's baby shower. I love making these onesies because they are easy to tailor to different individuals and are always well received. And let's be honest, a baby can never have too many onesies!

The princess crown was a given as my friend is having her first girl, and everyone is already calling her princess.

The strawberry is to go along with my current obsession and because I thought it matched the hat nicely.

These onesies are so easy to make! I use my Cricut to cut out the shapes, and then simply do a decorative stitch around with some embroidery thread. It would probably be easier and faster to do the stitches by machine, but I like the way the handmade ones look.

Lastly I would have liked to make an initial one like this one I made for my friend's son, but princess doesn't have a name yet. So that one will have to wait until she's born!

Those are darling! I agree, I like the hand-stitching look much better.
