How to “Upgrade” a plain Onesie
After receiving the good news that one of my friends was expecting a new baby, I started looking for all kinds of cute embroidery designs. Since she is still in the first trimester and does not know the sex of the baby yet, I picked a unisex design and color.
Since this is for a newborn and it is best not to have anything extra on their sensitive skin, I used Pellon Wash Away Embroidery Interfacing 541. I only cut a piece that would go across the middle of my hoop. Once attached I set my machine to start stitching. I put my machine speed down to about 40% of maximum speed and there were no thread issues.(until I took this picture, I did not notice that my machine speed control lever was greased underneath…maybe greased for ease!:-)
My original plan was just to put a smiling star on the onesie, but I decided that it needed more and added “Star Baby”, why not!
You can find or make your own quick embroidery. Even if you do not have a machine, you can do a quick design like this by hand. If you have any questions, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help you if I can!
