My little monogram would be the letter "M" for Maxwell (so cute, I cannot wait to meet the little guy). I started with a Newborn size Onesie, and fused some lightweight Pellon interfacing on the inside to stabilize the cotton.
I had already fused the same lightweight Pellon to the back of my polka dot fabric, so then I cut out my "M".
Pinned the "M" to the Onesie, making sure the inside fused interfacing was centered underneath.
To make things more managable, I basted the "M" first, so it would stay put once I started my zig-zag stitch for the outline. Although, it looks kinda cute with just the basting...
All ready to go, I did a wide zig-zag stitch around the "M" for the border. I am still getting the hang of maneuvering my machine around corners and angles, but it's pretty good, especially for working around a tiny Onesie with my machine!
The coordinating burp cloths were super easy and fast. I used regular Gerber pre-fold cloth diapers as the base. I used a ton of these as burp cloths in the first 8 months with my baby.
I cut out my fabric to roughly 18"X6". I folded under approximately 1/2" (or whatever length it didn't overlap the cloth too much) on each side and pressed it down.
I pinned the fabric to the burp cloth and stitched around 1/4" from the edge. Fancy burp cloths complete! An adorable personalized gift set for a new baby!
Here's to hoping he's not too big for the Newborn sized Onesie when he makes his big debut!!
