Wool Appliqued Onesie My First!

This was quite an adventure. I had a mama here contact me about merino wool onesies and I thought I would give it a try. It was quite a process. I hand dyed the wool jerseys and the wool rib knit. After numerous washings, cut the onesie out, appliqued the castle with wool interlocks and then applied the rib knit with my coverstitch machine. Which is usually so easy, but it took me a while to get the settings adjusted for a wool rib knit, let's say the seam ripper was my friend! For anyone wondering wool rib knit is thick!

The end result is pretty cute though and I will definitely try it again in the future. Need to give myself a bit to forget about it, and then I will do another! LOL

Thanks for letting me share!!

That is adorable!

And I know what you mean about needing to but it aside to feel motivated to do it again

Re: Wool Appliqued Onesie My First!

Thank you everyone! It's nice that even though it was a pain, it was so worth it in the end. At least now I know that I can do it, which is all I think we can ask of ourselves, right? Trying new things makes life enjoyable!

And I know you will love it Stephanie!!
