love

My brother and his wife welcomed their fourth child, third daughter, in January. While at Hobby Lobby a month ago I found a sweet little iron-on that said it was for babies. I bought it and a pink onesie.


It read "loved" - perfect, I thought. Except no matter what I did I couldn't get the iron-on to transfer (and for once in my life I even followed directions!). Then I started thinking that if I were to finally get it to stick, how secure would it be? What if the little dots came off and made it look ugly, or worse - choked my sweet little niece? So I formulated another plan. I remembered one of my favorite remnants.



I went to work. (if you can call it work - it was very fun!)


I made the heart big enough to cover the indents left by the crappy iron-on which, by the way, I'm glad didn't work out because I love this a lot more than I would have loved that.

I love this more, too. Very cute! You need to remember this for future baby gifts.

Beautifully crafted! Such a simple thought, but I never would have thought of it on my own. It is wonderful!

I love these kinds of onesies. Made some years ago. :)

I love it so much, and so does Sharie Dearie. I think she'll wear it tomorrow (or today because it's after midnight). I think I can't sleep because there's no kids crying in my face. Much nicer than a horrible headache. I hope it gets better and that a little laughter from "the doctor" helped.
