I told myself I wasn't going to make any onesies for Claire. Onesies are basic items that get stained quickly and are grown out of quickly. Then I found some adorable aztec print knit fabric in the remnant bin at Joann's. (Geez, when do I ever buy fabric from the bolt at full price!?) It was a remnant that was too small to use for me so it became a onesie and some baby leggings for this fall.
I used a free onesie pattern which is great and has multiple versions, but it's all in German. So I'm not sure if I made it correctly or not. I made the shoulder overlap version. I messed up somewhere because the sleeves were too small for the body which I could only correct by making the body really tight. She'll just have to wear it a lot before she grows out of it!
The fabric is so soft but has great stretch and return. Instead of doing hems I finished all the ends with homemade knit bias tape. This time it was a success, probably my first ever! I need to keep practicing, so I won't be so afraid of it.
How great is her hair? If I don't comb it down when it's still wet after her bath, then it sticks straight up.
