Overalls Makeover

Happy Friday!!  I can’t believe how fast this week has  flown by as well.  Where has the time gone?!

For me, this week has been another crazy week working with editors, designs, and more.  One thing I did get done that I have been meaning to do is to make this pair of overalls wearable for baby (sorry for the absence of a “before” picture):

You see, I had bought this Italian boutique pair of overalls before having kids was cool in my life.  You see, this was clearly a pair of overalls for a boy, but no longer so.  The overalls are lined for warmth, so I really hated to waste it by not having baby wear it for the winter.  So, I machined appliqued / embroidered a girl bear on the front to add a smidgen of girlishness to the overalls.  I think with the orange-y red top, the overalls should pass as a bona fide girl outfit.  Don’t you think?  Oh, the design is from Sew Many Designs:

Especially, when worn with the polka dotted yellow hairbow…

Then, I got adventurous, and started mixing and matching.  I thought this might be another workable combination as well…

While I had my embroidery module out, I went ahead and made this as well.  It is going into a pillow.  Baby is invited to her first ever birthday party — so, the pillow will be a gift for her pal!  This will have to be finished by the weekend.  The design is from my all time favorite collections for babies – Alphabears by OESD:

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you have a great weekend.  We are going to try to stay warm and cozy despite the bitter cold!

  1. The overalls definately look ‘little girl’ to me! I am wishing I had a pair of lined ones to ‘enjoy’ our bitter cold in, too!

    What a grand gift for baby’s pal! I am sure she will enjoy it!


  2. Those overalls are definitely girlie now. I’m telling you that your blog is surely an inspiration. I have an embroidery machine and haven’t done much of anything since my daughter was younger. I think I need to look into using it again.

  3. Great embroidery! You must have a clever sewing machine! the overalls look very cute with the motif and who says girls can’t wear blue especially teamed with a little pink. She will look adorble in these.

  4. Hi Wendy,
    Well Red is going to be the best dressed little girl around. I really love what you did with the overalls. Very girlie. My goodness you are such a talented lady.
    Sorry I haven’t been by lately as I haven’t been well. I have been having a lot of problems with one of my legs and I have discovered this week that I have 2 stress fractures. – Sandra.

  5. This is precious! Your bear applique and embroidery absolutely are the sweetest touch, and your bows and shirt changes will make this baby the best dressed around. :-} pokey
