After the skully project I decided to try a different material since the onsie was too stretchy. Plus it was getting warm and I thought the little should wear a dress. Since I knew this was going to be a new creative outlet I felt the need to buy a few more gadgets to make embroidery life easier (plus I just love gadgets). I ordered a Q-Snap and t-shirt stabilizer, which will definitely come in handy when I do the next onsie because it will keep it from stretching in the loop. The t-shirt stabilizer is also ideal for transferring the pattern onto dark material.
For the cherries I started with a split stitch to outline then went over with a satin stitch (like she shows on the 2nd balloon). Split stitch for the leaves and then a back stitch for the 3 little lines in the middle of the leaves.
Note to self and anyone else reading. When the directions say to not get the stabilizer wet, DON'T get it wet! It ends up sticking to the material and it took some effort to get that little spec off, but all in all it turned out pretty cute and the little loved it.
