My grandma gave me these two onesies earlier this summer, they're preemie size so I decided to try out some new embroidery stitches on them and some applique. Here's an up close of the apple, I did in one evening (thanks to some extra nesting energy) Its an open chain stitch around the apple, the leaf I drew first and then did a satin stitch to make it and the stem is a whipped chain stitch. All three were new stitches and I'm happy to say they were pretty easy! Here's an up close of the kitty, it took a lot longer to finish I lost some steam trying to get the outline done.
The outline is the open chain stitch again, a little messy I was getting sick of doing it lol! The nose and ears are a satin stitch, I really like how that stitch looks. The whiskers are the whipped chain stitch (another encore stitch) and the mouth is a single fly stitch. The patches are a whipped running stitch, a new one but very easy :) And the eyes, my new hard stitch for this one, are FRENCH KNOTS! This stitch is a big achievement for me but I still hate it, it only works when it wants to lol. I love how the face came out :) Now I'm not sure what to do with them! I don't think this baby is going to be small enough to wear them, which really isn't a bad thing! So I might hang them somehow, somewhere in her room or put them on a doll or bear in her room.... Its nice to have at least one project finished! Now its time to start another heehee!
