Clothes for Megan

In the last week I've made a couple of new things for Megan:

Embroidered Onesie
I've had my embroidery machine for 4 or 5 months now but hadn't yet tried to embroider on knit fabrics. So when I saw that this month's Embroidery Club at Quilter's Emporium was doing an applique on knit I knew I had to go. And boy am I glad I did!! Like everything else, with the proper stablizer knit stitches up easily. Now working on a onesie is another story! Even with an 18 month onesie it was a struggle to get the front hooped in the 5x7 hoop and keep everything else out of the way as the machine stitched.

OU Top
Hubby is an OU fan. He doesn't watch much college football, but does try to catch the OU games when they are on. So in honor of Thursday's championship game I made Megan an OU top with some fabric I picked up when in Tulsa last year. I still can't believe I only bought 1 yard. Oh well, I'm sure we'll make a trip to Tulsa sometime this year.

My niece is around her age, and she would look precious in this.

Great job!
