Ahoy!

My sewing room has had a nautical theme here lately, as I work on a few orders I got after this outfit was on Made and Rae's, Celebrate the Boy Etsy Roundup.

I didn't have more of the striped fabric because it was made from a repurposed T, so I bought some similar fabric from The Fabric Fairy. They have a great selection of knits, and other fabrics as well.

This super cute romper is a custom order for a soon to arrive little preemie. I never would have thought to put lime green with navy blue. Soooo cute!


The striped onesie with red trim will be in my shop soon, but I have a dilemma. I really want to applique an anchor on the front, and my husband thinks it's too much.

The real applique will probably be yellow....this one is cut from the recycling, so just ignore the writing etc.

What do you think?

  5. Love the stripes! I sure wish JoAnn Fabric would 'get it' that we sewers would like to see more striped knits and knits in general.
    I like the anchor! I almost put one on a recent shirt that I made, but put a car on instead.

  9. Oh I bought some of this fabric but I haven't washed it yet and I wonder if it softened up after washing. The preemie size is so adorable.

  10. these are so cute! Your etsy owl rompers were darling, I love that print in the knit--more than my flannel. So funny we both thought on the same lines with the baby pjs. Glad to have found your blog!

  11. I love these so much! I say nix the anchor. I think the stripes look super cute without it. :)
