Lots of Appliqued Onesies and Tees

I've been busy this week sewing appliques on onesies and tees. I'm doing a trade with a photographer friend. I made her a bunch of shirts and we'll be having a photo shoot with her next week. I still have so many more ideas for her. Just need to find time to make it all, but I really enjoyed it! Since she's a photographer, she found fabric of cameras that she loved and asked me to make shirts for her 3 1/2 year old son and 3 month old girl. I think they turned out cute. I added a button for the lens on each one. She'll be doing photos of her kids in these and I'll post them when she does.

I didn't like the fabric against white. Navy looked good but the onesie and tee were really different colors. So I tried RIT Dye for the first time. Picked a nice gray. Used the tutorial on MADE, making it VERY easy and not intimidating. Would have liked the gray a little darker, but I dyed a lot of stuff so it's ok.And here are the ones I came up with using my fabric. This bird on a branch is my favorite! And it matches the bag I made her (just like the one I made for myself).

This is a classic car made from a Gymboree shirt that was too small and had cute surfer fabric with cars and palm trees. Love this one.
