I saw this mega cute doily onesie on Pinterest the other day, and immediately got a little sad that I didn’t have a daughter to make it for. I sent my heavily pregnant friend Katie a message on facebook requesting that her baby be a girl so I could make it for her instead! Well, she was very kind and DID have a girl, which meant that I could make the doily onesie I saw!
Lets just stop for a minute and appreciate the fact that I actually MADE something I pinned! Woah.
Anyway, this is the little cherub below. Isn’t she devine?! The onesie is a 00, so she still have a while before she can wear it, but I think it will suit her!
The onesie itself was super easy to make, because I just purchased a doily from the opshop (I actually had bought it quite a while ago- they’re one of those things I always buy when I see nice ones!!), and used some embroidery thread to stitch it on. I didn’t want to go crazy with the stitching, but for a baby’s outfit it needed to be pretty secure, so I did three ‘rows’ of stitching- one in each of the main section of doily. So up and down around the very edge, through the middle of the middle section, and then around the top of the inner section. I think it looks best with the doily positioned over one side of the onesie, as opposed to straight in the middle, and this also makes it much easier to do because you don’t have to worry about it being even!
P.S: Sorry for the dodgy photo of the onesie- it was a quick iPhone shot before I rushed out the door!
