Anyway, instead of closing up shop for the day and retreating to my couch with jammies in tow, I'm trying to keep busy and stay occupied so as to keep my mind off of things. I've had a renewed interest in applique lately and so I've decided to try my hand at some onesies and little shirts for kids (up to a size 2T). I'm really enjoying this and each project moves so quickly it's hard to become bored with it. Here's what I've come up with:
the hummingbird is my favorite. I haven't stitched it down yet, but the stitches will be subtle.
the frog is also not stitched down yet, and I'm toying with the position of his eye. I used a french knot for his pupil.
the little strawberry was my first attempt. there are many things I don't like about it but everyone told me I should try to sell it anyway.
I've had dog fever since my mom took the little puppy home. the crooked stitch along the side of his face makes me mental.
Customers love the little bird, even with his crooked little feet
So what do you think? I like them, although we'll see if they sell. I'm interested in feedback of all sorts, so please send any comments or suggestions my way. Thanks! Oh, and I'm really sorry about the dark pictures. I can't figure out the lighting in this place to save me.
As I was typing this, the little blue dog onesie sold for $18. I'll take it!
