one year goes so fast

I have a new “go to” baby shower gift.

That would imply that I had an old “go to” baby shower gift, but I didn’t.

Anyway…

I made a set of 12 onesies. One for each month of the baby’s first year of life.

The set in the photos was, obviously, made for a baby girl.

I used vintage sheets for the numbers and ironed them on using fusible web.

{For the other set, which was for a boy and is not pictured, I had enough time to stitch around each number with contrasting thread.}

Then we put them in a box and wrapped them up all nice and pretty.

    What a great idea! When my kids were babies, I took a picture on each monthly “birthday” – but I just stuck a post-it note to their chest! This is SO much better!! Love it!

    Great idea! I’m just starting to play with interfacing myself for some quilts, and I’ve seen a few different designs for onesies .. Love the fabric you chose for these 🙂
