A Birdie Shirt and a Bunny

This is the onesie I was originally making for Sawyer's Easter outfit. A little bird, inspired by some vintage fabric I saw on ebay (that has also been made into an apron). I love that fabric. It's very fun. And mod. And costs more money than I can justify to pay. That's why I have to pretend that I own some of it and applique it onto my baby's shirt.

A few weeks ago I found a really cute tutorial for a cashmere bunny, but I couldn't find any thrifted cashmere. I decided to use my fat quarter and make one for the baby. He has a grosgrain ribbon tail and satin ribbon ears. The baby loves to chew on it. And it's the perfect size for him to hold. (The reverse side is solid green with a fat quarter heart appliqued on.)

Last night I made apple enchiladas for dessert. I rarely make desserts because they don't get eaten. These are simple and tasty. The kids really loved them.

"i rarely makes desserts because they don't get eaten"

Adorable little chick and bunny! I don't think I'm familiar with the idea of uneaten desserts. :)

Lera, great bunny. I love the way you made it your own. In fact, I think I like your version better. Even his shape is great. I probably would have stopped when they said "draw out your bunny". The bird is great too! Nice job

That birdie onesie is too, too cute! I absolutely love it! I've been dying to do some applique onesies/t-shirts/whatever lately.
Apple enchiladas? Interesting. It sounds and looks pretty good.

That birdy is so cute. I checked out that fabric on ebay and it's adorable! I dont think I've ever seen anything like that.

And I agree with the others, how can dessert no get eaten??

That bunny is on my list of things to make from a felted sweater. And I'm going to need to file for an extension on my FQC! Life just gets in the way.

And oh, the fuss at our house if there ISN'T dessert.
