Babies - undercover angel projects

Two friends have had babies recently and I had been looking for a suitable present for each, so when Inspirations 75  arrived with several Kathy Barac designs for embroidering on baby singlets and bodysuits I went straight to Country Bumpkin and bought two bodysuits.

I chose the bulldog motif for the first one - a really smile-making little fellow in bullion knots.

This is a project that would be hard to manage without a water-soluble stabiliser to hold the design long enough to at least get the shape outlined.

The result was pleasing - to me and to the recipients. It is great to have interesting, relatively quick and charming designs for such useful garments.

These will wear out rather than being passed on - very satisfying.

Geez, you have already finished projects, and I still haven't received the darn magazine!

Your singlets look great, though. What a nice gift!
