You knew it was coming. Yep: the Week of Baby Onesies Swap on Craftster! It's my favorite swap, and I always look forward to it. I love trying new techniques, improving old ones, and challenging myself to try new designs. I crafted for larger kiddos this round, so no actual baby onesies. (The girl shirts are for a private swap, and for an older child.)
The accomplishment I'm most proud of this round? Conquering my fear of sewing knits! I made long sleeves for several of these shirts, using thrifted shirts for the fabric. (This striped fabric was once a cute Gap top!) I didn't even break out my serger, and they all turned out great! Most of the girl shirts were inspired by themes, shirts or other items on my partner's wists. . . .
And these are for a sweet little boy. . . .
So I'm about all crafted out, on the swap-front. I think I'm going to take a break from swapping. . . at least until the springtime shirt swap rolls around. :)
OK -- that's not entirely true. More swap goodies tomorrow....
