Baby Boy--Tie Onesie

    I have been working on a gift basket for my friend who is having a baby shower tomorrow.  She is having a boy. I think that baby girl things are so much easier than baby boy things.  No pink, no ruffles, no bows....what to do?!?!   I have seen cute tie onesies for boys lately so I decided to give one a try.  I ironed wonder-under on the fabric I was using and then just hand drew my tie onto the back of the wonder-under before cutting it out.  I made 2 parts, one is the "knot" and the other the tie hanging down.  After you have the tie cut out you just peel the backing off the wonder-under and iron the tie on to the onesie--so easy!  I then sewed around the edge of the tie to keep it stuck to the onesie.
    I have heard good things about the wonder-under, but I have to say I wasn't impressed.  I found it hard to get the backing off and then I had trouble getting it to stick when I ironed it.  The project turned out fine, I just wasn't impressed with the stuff.  Maybe I did something wrong??

   I can't wait to give this to the mom-to-be!

Also, thank you so much for your kind words about my slipcover. It was my first attempt and as a seamstress we can be our worst critics so I appreciate it when people tell me it looks professional!!

Have a wonderful weekend
