It's finished. Custom order complete! Couple weeks ago when I worked the Farmer's Market on South Pearl I met a gal who want a onesie and blanket with a Colorado theme...mountains, trees, and most of all the goodies had to be unisex because her friend in Norway is expecting a surprise soon. So, this is what I came up with, teals pewter grey, lime green and white. I love the outcome...what do you think?
The customer specifically asked that "Colorado" be on the blanket...a little freehand appliquéing with some snugly flannels and wha-la!
the matching onesie! Also a unisex number. I thought of the customer traveling to Norway and her desire to share her home-"Colorado" with her friend and expectant baby. The image of a luggage tag came to mind and I ran with it. The mountains are too cute snow caped with a fuzzy off white fabric, super soft to touch. I played with some different stitching even added a little snowflake. Fun, fun, fun.
I hand painted "Colorado" it was just too small to applique out of fabric, and it was faster this way too.
a little detail on the back neck line...
I'll be dropping these goodies off tomorrow at Polkadot for the customer to come pick up...I really hope she enjoys gifting them...I fell in love with the fabrics while working with them and I'm tempted to brainstorm another project for an excuse to order more yardage!
