Give Me A Seven!
Little personalized t-shirts are a great gift, but I feel like I need something to go with it. When you don't have time to make a quilt, what else is a fun sewing project for a new baby?
I made this onesie for a special friend using Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 and a Schmetz ball point needle. Did you know that knit fabrics can run like pantyhose if you get a hole in it? Not good! A ball point needle has a rounded tip and pushes the t-shirt fibers aside instead of piercing them like universal and sharp needles.
The fabric is by Heather Ross. It's from an out of print line called, Lightning Bugs and Other Mysteries. I love it so much!! The sketched wildflowers are sweet and the cotton is incredibly soft. I was excited to see it again as part of Heather's new line, Far, Far Away III (preview here).
