a "Onesie" for my adult friend
One of my best friends, K, asked to have a "onesie" made for her some time ago. I was a bit surprised at the time, and thought, "Do adults wear onesie's?" Sure enough, we found a pattern in the store! I kept putting it off though b/c the pattern looked complex...but I finally decided to just press through and surprise her with it for her b-day. The fabric was hard to cut due to the thickness, but ended up being a breeze to sew (no serging required)! The pattern instructions were poorly written, and since I don't like to follow instructions (another reason I can't bake), it took me a while to figure what I was supposed to do. Now that I have done one though, the next (if there is a next) should be easy!
She looked SO adorable in it, and it fit perfectly! (I won't embarrass her here though w/a pic of her) I chose a ridiculously looking pink polar fleece with badminton rackets printed all over with flowers, since we used to play the team sport together. I also sewed the first JJ Design label onto it, with her initials embroidered! I liked it so much that I think I might make one for myself in time for the cold winter here in SF. So there WILL be a next...
