Three Onesies

It seems this is the month for stitching on things other than linen. Last week I stitched up these three onesies as a gift.

Baby Onesies

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!

The Jack Skellington face is another freebie, available for free from Capes and Crafts.

Top Hat Skull Onesie, June 2013

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.

    Those came out so nice! Even with waste canvas basted down six ways to Sunday, I still get wonky x-‘s. There must be some magic trick I don’t know about. I actually always take the threads out dry though. I kind of find it relaxing! Crazy, huh?

    I love the Jack Skellington! I with have to use that one on a present. I found some really cute video game (Mario, etc.) Over in sprite stitches forum. I am plotting making fun things for all of the babies coming into my world.
