Today, we have Kelly from Sewing in No Mans Land with us.
This beautiful mom is an amazing sewer with a slew of great patterns on her site. And her photography, nothing short of stunning and professional. Every shot. I love visiting her site, because I always leave amazed and inspired.
Today she’s sharing a very useful sewing project for her sweet little Chloe whom she had just three months ago. Here’s Kelly…
Hi Delia Creates readers! I am Kelly from Sewing In No Mans Land and I am so excited to be here! Since I just had my own munchkin three months ago I am really enjoying this series and all the incredible inspiration! Before I had Chloe I had the best intentions of making her some sleep sacs. I absolutely hate dealing with snaps in the middle of the night and promised myself that this time around I would put her in jammies with no hardware ha! Of course life happened and I never got a chance to make them. So when Delia asked me to be part of this series I knew exactly what I was going to make, the Count Sheep Sleeper:
If you only have old onsies you can always dye them! These onesie were new but I tea died them because I really wanted that vintagey feel. It worked great! (4 lipton black teas bags to a boil, stick in onsies and let simmer for a while until they reach the desired color, cold rinse and let sit then throw in the wash before putting on your munchkin). I also decided to embellish my tops with some pre made doiles. You might want to do this at the beginning. I just used wonder under to attach mine and it work like a charm! First take your 1/4 year of fabric, fold it in half and sew up the side. This will be your back seam:
I love that fabric and I am definitely going to have to try tea dying!
Thank you so much for nesting with me Kelly.
Oh, too cute! I will have to customize for a boy!

Cute photos! Nifty idea 🙂
Kell´s idea is great!
I was just wandering, if the color would rinse by washing?
And another thing, did you know your "Freshly picked baby hats" were featured on http://www.copyepaste.com/2012/02/camisetas-velhas.html
What did she do with the other end of the skirt part? Leave it open or put elastic in it?
I was wondering where you got your doilies ? Or did you make them ?
This is a guest post, but I believe Kelly bought them at a craft/fabric store. I think the dollar store may even carry them from time to time.
