OMG this is my 300th post! I knew I talked a lot, but 300 posts? LOL... Well let's get cracking then shall we? As I am sure you are all aware, Halloween season has started. Yay! But because life is so busy right now I just havent really gotten into it yet. Oops...
However, remember the baby booties from a little while ago?
Each pair has a matching onesie and no, I wont blog about each and every little things about this set although... I kind of already have ;) hihi... But the pumpkin ones on the side are part of a pumpkin Halloween outfit for a colleague :) I didnt manage to include this in the Stashbusting September but it is too cute not to share.
I asked him first if he would even put it on his daughter as I wasnt sure he even liked Halloween, but he agreed so I made him this:
Isnt it the cutest? I made this set from leftover fleece from the Halloween house suit (really must post pics someday) and the green was still leftover from the gloves from the leaf dress.
I used Martha Stewart for the size of the head since I never really made a hat like this one for a baby. I just cut two semi circles (ok kind of semi circles, they're not exactly circley), and added the lined on the sewing machine. I sewed 4 small triangles together to get the stem and hand-stitched this onto the hat.
For the pumpkin onesie I cut out a piece similar to a pumpkin and sewed it onto the onesie. Since it doesnt fray, I didnt use any or the iron-on material (the name eludes me, sorry) and just sewed this straight on adding the lines to create the pumpkin look. I put a small triangle on the top overlapping a little bit for the stem.
The booties were made with the usual pattern and I added green ribbon which I cut to get it frayed a bit to resemble more nature-like greenery and two pumpkin buttons that I had bought at the S&C show a couple of years back.
I love it! I really hope it will fit and that my colleague will like it and use it for his daughter. :)
The entire baby present will be given to him tomorrow so fingers crossed! I will post final pocs here and let you know what he thought. At least his daughter will be all Halloweeny :) Another friend just had a baby boy and I will be making a zombie onesie for him so I think I will share pics of that also once it's done. Have to wrap the present now!
