Altered Onesie

Good Morning All!  I hope you are able to spend some time this weekend crafting!  I know that it is always a good day when I can spend time crafting something!  It's a hobby passion of mine.  But, I'm not generally too picky.  paper crafts, altered art, sewing.
My fifth grandchild was born last weekend.  So, I was super happy to help deliver her instead of being in my craft room.  But, this weekend I got to make her something!  Yesterday, I let you in on my idea of altering an onesie for her.
Here is the first one:

and a close-up of that cute little birdie:

I was searching the internet for a 'quick and easy' tutorial on sewing 'patches'.  I just wanted a basic design, nothing too elaborate or difficult.  I'm a beginner sewer.  Is that a word? sewer?  I know I'm not a seamstress.  And, I did a pair of sleeves once.  but that was with major supervision and help.
So, anyway.  I found this lovely lady who did some wonderfully creative appliqué designs.  Sarah @ Daffodil Designs, has this great tutorial found here.  If you are looking for something fairly simple, this is your spot.  Sometimes, simple is just beautiful!  
I went to a discount store and purchased a package of onesies sized 3-6 months.  I figured that she can grow into them.  So, I will be altered the other two today.  But, I just loved how the first one turned out, so I just had to stop and share it with you!  Stop by later this week, to get a peek at the other two.  I'm so excited and super happy with how this project is turning out!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and craft something!  I am!
