There aren't any pockets inside but there is a pocket on each end. The pattern only called for one but hey, you can never have enough pockets.
It came out great and she loved it!

Here are a few pictures.
It was a challenge and it was fun. I'm not likely to do it again anytime soon but my attitude about home dec sewing has changed...a little bit.

The dog ears and bone are black. I hat heartburn over this initially but who says you can't use black on baby things? I think it looks fine.
Now, as promised, block 1 of my new Block of the Month club.
This block came with 5 templates. Are you kidding me? It was a lot of work and there was a mixture of machine and hand stitching. I'm pretty happy with it. Block 2 is in the house and I have started it. Lots of parallelograms. I better get going on it. Block 3 should be here any day.

You will have to use elastic thread in your bobbin for this project. For those of you that have never done this, don't worry. It's very easy. You must hand wind the elastic thread snugly. The reason you want to use this thread is to maintain some elastisity in the area where the skirt is attatched to the onsie. I used a size 6-9 months onesie. The fabric is Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey. This project is great for those fat quarters you have hanging around. I think this will become a "baby girl present" staple for me.
More photos to come on the new BOM. I started my new Block of the Month and finished the first block. The second is in progress. Jeez, these are a lot of work. The first block came with 5 templates! Till next time.

Don’t worry. There isn’t a fire but what I do have to show you is the cutest firefighter ever. Mind you, she wasn’t all that happy with the fire hat but left it on long enough for me to snap a couple of photos.
Not happy…leave me alone.
Still not happy but has figured out that she isn’t getting out of this photo shoot.
Getting a little peeved but can see the end in sight. Amazing what the promise of a treat will get you.
Can you get any freakin cuter than this I ask you?
Her Auntie Pam bought this costume for her but I think we’ll be getting a lot of use out of the slicker. It’s water proof and Miss L hates getting wet. I think wearing the hat one night a year will be more than enough for her.
Phew, glad that’s over. Firefighting is tough stuff.
Now onto some crafting.
A while back I showed you a couple of jewelry pouches that I made. Well, I recently got a picture of one in use.
I’m not sure that the tiny skinny ribbon was meant to hold so many baubles but I guess it works for her. Till next time.
