The Allstar teams (shout out to the Riptides!!) that my sister coaches wear navy, purple and gold uniforms. So, as a gift, I made a ruffle butt onesie and matching hat for little Brooklyn to wear to their practices and competitions!
I just started out with a plain white onesie that I purchased at Hobby Lobby, some blue and gold star buttons, blue and gold ruffle trim (I haven't quite mastered making my own ruffles yet), and finally some purple ribbon with white polka dots. I wanted the back to be the masterpiece, so I just hand-sewed the buttons to the front.
I purchased the hat at Hobby Lobby as well (they must love me there - I think I may be their best customer). Then I wound the gold trim to make a flower, and sewed the star button to the front and ribbon to the back. I heat sealed the ribbon with a lighter to prevent fraying.
And finally....wait for it.........
Isn't it too cute?? I cut the trim to fit, and then had to roll the sides under and create a seam at the edges since the trim was unfinished. This is the part that took me forever! I kept jamming the machine, LOL.
I added the bow and star, and voila!!
She loved the onesie! I love it too - I can't wait to see little Brooklyn in it!!!
Oh yeah - forgot to tell you. We got the kitchen table stained yesterday and it looks great!! I'll be painting the chairs today. I am hoping to be able to post it all by the end of the week.
Till tomorrow - I have one more gift to share!
