newborn baby onesie: embroidered owl applique from upcycled tshirt fabric

Squee! Just finished making this little owl applique for a newborn onesie. I had an old green t-shirt that was destined to become a rag, so I used a piece of that fabric for the owl’s body. I used standard thread for the embroidery. It’s not perfect, but then again, baby will only wear this for the blink of an eye before she outgrows it.

[Update: Owl baby hats are now available via my Etsy shop!]
