My So Called Crazy Life

I really do have the best intentions.  Life just gets in the way sometimes.  I owe a follow-up on my last project I blogged about.  I'm actually really happy with the results, just not the time to took to complete OR the insane amount of time to post here.  

Remember when I posted this?

It was my inspiration for a project.  My cousin recently had a baby, and I wanted to make something for her.  

So, this is what I ended up with:

Cute, huh?  I love the different colors.  I just made up a pattern and placed it on the onesie to get the size right.  Then I cut it out, ironed interfacing on - to stabilize - and then zigzagged around it.

But I didn't want to leave out the big sister, so it turned into two projects.

But did I stop there?  NO!  I decided to put some ruffles on the little pants I got.  Didn't want the new baby to get cold while out visiting family for Turkey Day.

Cuteness overload!

Here are the two together and I got it put in the mail in time for Thanksgiving.

It was an adventure in applique, but I'm glad I at least tried it out.  I may even do more in the future, who knows?
Until next time...happy crafting.
