Onesie Ties

Do you remember our +1?  He was with us during the day while his mom was on bedrest.  Anyway, not too long ago his twin brothers were born and he left us.  When our +1 was born I made him a onesie tie.  I wasn't sure what protocol was for twins.  Technically they already had one, so should I just give them one?  It is presumptuous to think they would want another?  I didn't know.  So I pretty much just asked her.  Turns out, yeah, they want some more.  So I introduced her to the chaos that is my fabric storage.  Here's what she choose.

I think they turned out well.  The plaid tie is especially cute.  I like that they coordinate without being all matchy-matchy twiners.  My Gma was a twin and she hated it, consequently my family has been indoctrinated with twins are siblings who happen to have been born the same day and that's pretty much where the twinness ends.
Back to the sewing.  It didn't occur to me when she was choosing that the white wouldn't stand out well.  I had a moment of debate with the blue outline, but I think it works; not too dramatic but enough delineation.
It was fun to take a little break from the impractical quilt and make something quick.  The impractical quilt is nearly finished.  I'm just sewing on the binding now, almost half way around.  Oh, I can't wait to show you; seriously, it's over the top.

I'm picturing peek-a-boo flaps with elephants and monkeys hiding behind trees, etc. Just my guess.

Oh yeah! So Sam's onesies start to unravel (or rip) around the seam. The last time I made it without stitching the edges and it has held up so far! Is it just me or is it super annoying to sew?

Of course she wants more, Amanda - those onesies are seriously adorable! I wish I'd seen those when my boys were babes. Can't wait to see your impractical quilt. I love over the top! :)

Those are the cutest little things! I can't wait until someone I know has a boy so I can make some of those. So sweet!

These are so adorable! And immediate gratification is definitely something to indulge in from time to time.

These are so cute! More than one is always good. They go through them too fast!
