I have to say that I’m about to make one of these for my own baby next. I’ve just finished up this last one piece (dare I say onesie? they might come get me if I do!!!! lol….have you heard how that word is trademarked and they have asked people to remove it from their sites?…) for a friend of mine who’s having a boy very very soon.
I was inspired by those maps you see at the mall. You know, the directories, and there is a star where you are stating “you are here”. I wanted to make that concept into something for baby and this is what I came up with.
I added a fabric applique of the state baby will be born in and a star in the specific area. Then I embroidered “Born Here” and the red around it on a piece of felt. Then I added the fusible interfacing to that and ironed it on. That way I didn’t have to tie any knots with the thread. You can still feel those sometimes you know? This way that wouldn’t happened. I also sewed it in place for extra staying protection.
Now I’ve got a box of baby boy things to get in the mail!
