Progress is Being Made

I'm pleased to have had two days off this week ...yesterday I celebrated my eldest daughter's third birthday, and my birth day - three years as a Mama. There was much cupcake eating, and fun was had by all.

I spent a good chunk of the day designing shirts, laying them out, and fusing them. No stitching yet, but I'm about halfway there. Not sure about whether I need to use tearaway fusible stabilizer - does anyone have any experience with sewing onto knits? I've done a few with no stabilizer and they've worked out ok . .a little wonky but since I was gifting them it's all good. Since these are for sale I want to make sure that they're the best they can be. I'm worried that if I use stabilizer they might seem stiff, and since they're intended for little wee babies this doesn't thrill me.

I've done very few that are the same, but so far, these are my five favourites.

You're so good at them, Donna! That red one is calling my name. Too bad I'm 5'10"!

So gorgeous! That log cabin circle is wonderful. These will look beautiful on any baby.

Adorable - I've been wanting to make some of these for my son.
I don't imagine the stabalizer would make the onesies stiff since you tear it away after. I think it's worth a try, but then again, I've never used it on knits.

These are so cute! My favorite is the purple (eggplant?) one =)

And happy birthdays all around!

I LOVE these! I never thought to stitch a log cabin on a onesie. SO cute! I used prewashed flannel as my stabilizer when I applique'd on onesies. It kept it soft on the inside for the baby.
