Fall Turtle Applique Onesie

Happy Monday! Today I want to share with you a Fall Turtle Applique Onesie that I made! (Created with a pattern from LSHD.)

I decided that I wanted to try something a little bit different with this adorable pattern! To make this onesie first I cut out the turtle pattern in card stock. Next I traced the pattern onto felt. I then cut out all of the felt pieces and used a permanent ink to ink all of the edges to add dimension. I then started sewing each piece on with a blanket stitch starting from the back layers and then working my way to the front. After that I hand sewed on some sequins and beads as well as some little bows to accent the turtle and add some texture. To finish I used white fabric paint to add the highlights. I just love that these patterns can be used in so many different ways! This applique technique would even be adorable to add to a quilt or baby blanket! Have a wonderful day, and thanks for stopping by!
