Gift for a new baby boy!

Gift for a new baby boy!, originally uploaded by soja.

I hope my friend and her new babe like it! Little Oscar has arrived a couple of weeks early.

I had already made the bibs, so this little onesie was quick to whip up. I just used a little bondaweb to attach the fabric hearts and then used the blanket stitch on my machine to slowly sew around the heart. I didn't need to use any other stabiliser or ball point needle.

I love my new machine. :-)

I really love this! I love the stippling pattern you did on the bibs, it's really fun. What kind of pattern did you use for the bibs?

Thanks! I just made up my own pattern. I cut three rectangles of fabric about 10 by 9 ", two of cotton and one of batting or polar fleece. I sandwich them together, draw on the shape of the bib I want, quilt it, then cut out the bib shape and attache the bias binding. Hope this helps!
