Happy Baby Girl Onesie

I embellished this pink onesie for Rosie's dance teacher Kyla who is having a baby in a few weeks. Rosie had specific ideas about what to make. Kyla is fabulous: full of energy, always smiling, and a very talented dancer. She always wears a smiley t-shirt for the recital and stands in the wings to remind the girls to have fun and smile. Rosie thought her new baby needed a special shirt to attend the recital in June.
I have to admit that I always feel flattered when my kids ask me to make something for them. This project went very quickly. I used yellow poly/cotton broadcloth for the applique and a layer of interfacing behind it for stability. I embroidered on water soluble stabilizer, which is fine because the applique fabric won't stretch. The design is from Embroidery Designs.com.
We got some little matching pants and I put the smiley up high so that the pants wouldn't cover it.
Rosie's teacher loved it! It will be fun to see the baby in it at the recital.
