Crafting

So, today I did a little sewing while watching the kids in the pool. It's nice to sew by hand now and then, but I had to learn this stitch I did today, so I googled blanket stitch, which was the kind I used. I found an easy video and got to work.

The onsie here is part of a pack I bought at Target a while back. I bought it just to do this craft, and I finally got around to it. The fabric used is "upcycled" material. That's a fancy way of saying I tore into some of my old clothes. The grey whale used to be a work shirt. I don't work any more, so I snipped away.

The denim I used to make the water came from one of my son's old pair of jeans that he thoroughly destroyed playing in. The thread was leftover from an old cross stitch project. I love that for pretty much the cost of a pack of onsies I have made an adorable shirt for my nephew who will be born this fall. I'm even considering making a pair of pants to match. We'll see. I still have left over fabric from that shirt. :)

  2. Looks like an expert job to me. I enjoy sewing by hand mostly when I see the finished product being worn by the intended receiver. A craft that is very satisfying. Thanks for showing yours off.
