How stinkin’ cute are these little onesies? A polka dotted dinosaur and a peace sign cross stitched on a onesie. Adorbs. If I do say so myself!
Here is what you need to cross stitch a onesie
- DMC Floss (you will use only 3 of the 6 strands at a time)
- Small hoop
- 10 count tear away waste canvas – Here is what I used.
- White onesies
- Cross-stitch patten
How to cross stitch a onesie
Step 1 – Waste Canvas
Step 2 – Find center
Step 3 – Cross Stitch
Step 4 – Un Stitch
Either un pin or take the baste stitch out of the waste canvas.
Step 5 – Cut around the waste canvas
The goal is to get as much waste canvas off of the onesie as you can before you soak it off.
Step 6 – Soak
Soak the onesie in warm water and pull the waste canvas threads out.
Step 7 – Tweeze
Don’t be scare to whip out the tweezers to pull the remaining waste canvas out of the onesie.
You can make your own patterns or use a pre made pattern. Annie decided to make these patterns after we could not find anything we really loved in the books or online. Annie is pretty nice, and decided to share with everyone.
Tomorrow I’ll show you how we (ok, fine Annie) made the patterns! Have you ever heard of waste canvas? Are you cross stitcher? Needle pointer? How many cross stitched things are in your house? I have 8 at the moment, all made by mama.
