To hide the joins I hand sewed on a button strip from one of the babygros, leaving the popper detail on. I like to make it 'obvious' what the bunny is made out of by keeping in these little details.
The eyes are embroidered and then the nose and cheeks are little pieces of felt hand stitched on in contrast thread to make a feature of the stitching. I like my bears and bunnies to look a bit 'rag doll' like!
It took me rather a long time to figure out exactly how to embroider a name successfully onto a babygro, with lots of trial and error the first time I attempted it with Blair's bunny! I settled on using carbon paper. I printed off the name in a nice font the right size. Then place the carbon paper over the babygro and the printed name over this. Then you go over the words with a ball point pen and press hard, this leaves an ink mark onto the fabric ready to use as a guide for embroidery.
I was so happy I finally got to use my new stamp! This little beauty was a birthday present from THE bestest sister ever! This is the first order since getting my stamp so I have been so excited to finally use it.
