Embroidered Baby Singlets

As we continue with the preparation for our dear little one I have been stitching, crocheting and sewing little items for our little dumpling to be.

One of the  most enjoyable activities has been the embroidery on these 0000 size singlets.

Really they have been a quick and satisfying project and I love how they have turned out. However somehow I have managed to lose the other lady beetle one I completed and am leaving the last two till the baby arrives, in case it is a girl. If so I want to add more 'girly' embroidery to it instead of the flowers and bug theme.

The stitches I used, as I am a beginner in this, as with most of my crafts are:
lazy daisy stitch for the flowers
satin stitch for the bee body and lady beetle body
half a lazy daisy for the bee wings
back stitch for the antennae
french knots for the bee eyes and spots on the lady beetles

♥ Here are a few on line links for the stitches~

I can't stress how quick a result these were to have on the singlets and although not perfect I think they are very pleasing to the eye and I can't wait until our sweet little one wears them.

Blessings to you and your homes,

Beautiful! As I packed away our 000s today that my six week old has already outgrown! I told the children you were buying 0000s, they truly struggled to imagine a babe in 0000s.
