sewing for baby

Check out my collection. I am on modified bed rest and had to think of something to do with my hands to keep me from dying of boredom or restlessness.
So I sit in the rocking recliner and crochet around my flannel blankets.
I don't think a mom can have too many flannel blankets. You never know when spit up will happen.
This blanket has not gotten its edging yet. I sewed bird shapes on it to prevent the layers from moving around. I need to find a teal or aqua crochet thread. I love this birdie print, don;t you?!
This blanket was a receiving blanket set by Carters (I think?) I took 2 single layers of flannel and sewed them right sides together and insided it out. I need to decide how to edge this one too. I have already stitched circles around in random places to prevent shifting in the wash.
These two are fleece blankets that I sewed years ago to give as gifts but never did. So I pulled them out of my stash for my little guy to use. Fleece it warm for snowy days and perfect to wrap around the baby in the car seat.
Here is a onsie I embellished with an applique giraffe. I found the onsie at the dollar store and used fabric from my stash.
Sitting and resting and putting up my feet... well I am trying to make the best of it and not get bummed out, by sewing. Though when this kiddo comes I might go on a sewing strike. LOL!

simply sewn

I wanted to try this idea for a while and this little pair of overalls seemed the perfect time to try it out!
I stamped a design onto the area I wished to embroider.
Then I set about back stitching the lined design.
Very very simple to do and I am glad I did try out this idea.
Perhaps I will try a more involved design next time.

What do you think?
Would you try it too and share your results?
