Welcome to the April Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop. You will have arrived here from Trudy's blog. Not? Then be sure to go back and take a peek.
Plain inexpensive onesies are such fun to decorate with appliques, so I thought I'd share this one with you - a gift for a birthday girl to wear on her first birthday. (A simple tutu like this would look so cute worn with the onesie, don't you think?)
The ribbons are this month's Ribbon Club Assortment from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Oh so pretty!
For the cake and plate I ironed strips of ribbon onto a piece of Heat 'N Bond (iron-on adhesive for fabric) and then cut the shape, leaving the bottom ribbon piece a little longer on both sides for the plate. I then ironed the applique onto the front of the onesie and added a strip of ribbon for the candle. The edges were sewn with a zigzag stitch around the cake and plate, and a small straight stitch around the candle. The gorgeous frilly trim 'frosting' was sewn over the joints in the ribbon layers using a small zigzag stitch, and the ends trimmed and a dab of fabric glue applied to stop unravelling. Lastly, a yellow thread 'flame' was added to the candle.
Now hop over to Erika's blog and see what fun project she has for you today.
This is my last Blog Hop as part of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Design Team as my 6 month term has come to an end. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bonnie for all her wonderful ribbons she's so generously allowed me to play with during this time. It's been so much fun, and I hope you've enjoyed seeing the ideas and projects I've contributed to the group and have been inspired to get out there and do lots of 'ribbon-y stuff'! Be sure to stop by and say Hi and welcome to the new DT at Really Reasonable Ribbon and see what wonderful "ribbonyness" they will be sharing with you in the coming months.
Welcome, and thanks for visiting. I have to keep my creative juices flowing, so these are some of my creations!
