A Quick Diaper Shirt With Bullion Embroidery

We discovered really fast that Christian is most comfortable in diaper shirts, so at his request I got busy on another! How could I resist? The fabric was already in my stash and he is already such a boy that he needed a manly print. Once again Rex asked if I had cut up one of his shirts! "No dear, but you have one that looks a lot like that...."

Since Christian is working on growing a double chin, I cut the neck slightly larger. I was able to make the shirt in one afternoon, do the handwork that evening, and the Bullion frog the next morning. Now, that is what I call "Nana Sewing!" The frog is from "Australian Smocking's A-Z Bullion Book", which happens to be one of my favorites. If you have not tried Bullion animals, they are extremely quick and easy. This little frog took me less that 15 minutes.

*These pictures are about 2 weeks old and Christian now 7 weeks old and weighs 11.5 lbs. The boy is getting plenty to eat! He is not a red head yet, although we are all hoping!

Cute, cute, cute! Christian is a little doll. He looks so happy and sweet in his new diaper shirt.

So very cute! Not sure that my bullions are up to the challenge but maybe after Kari's class in Huntsville they will pass. See you there! Can't wait for your school and picture smocking class!

He looks like he's saying "A-OK" to me. He's a dollbaby, and I love the shirt.
