Monthsies? Yes, Monthsies
So waaaay back in 2011, a sweet friend asked me to make some monthly onesies for her grandson. After his first year of life, she was going to make a quilt out of all the onesies. "What a great idea!", I exclaimed and immediately went to crafting my own design for these little keepsakes. The name MONTHSIES literally popped into my head. I googled it and it was nowhere to be found, therefore, I'm taking full credit for the name...(pat myself on back :) AND, I'm putting my unofficial copyright on the name...so there! (yeah, that outta hold up in court).
My friend was kind enough to find all the fabrics to match each month and I machine appliqued each one. Every month I was so excited to watch this tiny thing grow into a bouncing big boy. Earlier this year, my friend and her daughter finished the quilt and it is nothing short of spectacular. I wish I had the know-how and time to quilt, but that kind of construction and detail is beyond the perimeters of my attention span. Needless to say the first set was a hit and I've been custom making Monthsies since then. Many sets are in the works this year and I can't wait to see them all complete.
Too cute, huh? They're a labor of love, but sooo worth it. I only wish I could turn back time and make them for my kiddos! They're also super-adorable on the babies. I won't post pics of the models on here, but there are some in my fan photo album on FB.
