To Do: Embroidery

I've working on a lot of embroidery lately. Plenty of projects between Jean's trousseau and a wave of upcoming babies.

These three onesies are for the soon-to-be baby boy of one of my oldest friends.

I've been embroidering a lot lately, too! I find it great for instant gratification! (I'm also a knitter....) Thanks for showing us what you've completed! So cute!

Do you put some sort of backing on the inside of the shirt?

MrsEm said...

No, but I try to keep the knots to a minimum and very small so they won't irritate the baby.

adorable! whose baby? I need to get on it, there are several friends' babies due in July!

How would you wash these? Hand wash? Will the colors of the embroidery floss bleed at all in the washing? I want to attempt this but didn't know if you have to prewash the floss or something... thanks! Great work!

I've never had the embroidery floss bleed in the wash. I have a few dishtowels that are embroidered and washed often with no trouble. What would be the point of a white onesie for a baby if it couldn't be washed?

just adorable!
I saw some the other day at Target that had some zig-zag work done on the neckline ... almost wanted some in my size.
