Rufflebum Onesies

      There is just something fun about making things for baby girls. Sewing adult stuff is rewarding, but sewing baby stuff is just fun. Recently, my sister generously gave me several bags of hand-me-downs to use for my girls. Among them was this stack of plan white onesies. Now, me and my itchy little fingers just can't leave things alone, so I decided to dress them up a bit.

      First thing I did was use some stencils and paint the fronts.

     They all turned out good except the lady bug. It doesn't look too bad in this picture, but up close its pretty awful. I decided not to mess with that one further and reserve it for a day when said baby is spitting profusely or something.  Next I cut some strips of jersey and added three rows of ruffles to the bums.

      I also added bows to the front of two of them.

     I wasn't too particular about the ruffles matching the color on the front. I think they look brighter and cuter that way.

     I can't wait to see her little diaper bum all dressed up in ruffles!
