It seems this is the month for stitching on things other than linen. Last week I stitched up these three onesies as a gift.
They are stitched on real Gerber “Onesies”, short sleeve and very light-weight. Perfect for the summer. The floss is DMC and I used 12 count waste canvas. If you follow my Twitter feed (@silverlotus152) you might have noticed that I complained about removing the waste canvas. That’s because I forgot that you are supposed to wet it before removing it. Thank goodness I only did one the hard way!
Onesie number One is Swirly Sheep, designed by Christy Schmitz and available for free on the Just Cross Stitch website.
The Jack Skellington face is another freebie, available for free from Capes and Crafts.
And this top hat wearing skull came from the book [amazon_link id=”B006CDEVH2″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Makoto’s Cross Stitch Super Collection[/amazon_link].
You know, stitching on waste canvas wasn’t so bad at all. Okay, the results don’t look as neat and even as stitching on a nice linen, but the effect is still really cool. In fact, I’m sure I’m going to be doing more. The little man has asked me to stitch some small car motifs on his school shirt. All I need is some smaller count waste canvas and I’ll be in business.
